Christine came daily to look after my father who suffered with Parkinson's and terminal cancer. She adapted her regime to his changing needs and was highly sensitive to his energy levels and ability to benefit from her skills. Despite his failing health she succeeded in reversing some of his physical decline. Her pleasant demeanour was soothing and made the experience a pleasure.
