Biographical Info

Fiona Brazill is the creator of Sensory Hap.

She says, “As a designer I enjoy design, making and combining colours and textures.  Hap Sensory Blankets are a hand-made product, knit using a variety of materials.  The pressure from a weighted blanket actually affects the brain, causing it to release neuro-transmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which improve mood and induce a calming effect, the individual has the sensation of a ‘hug’ and this relaxing effect.  Weighted therapy blankets are suitable for a child on autistic spectrum, with adhd, anxiety and a wide range of sensory conditions.  Sensory blankets for adults can be used for a huge range of health issues such as Insomnia, Anxiety, depression, those on Autistic Spectrum, Parkinson’s.  Weighted products are not suitable for anyone with Respiratory or Circulatory health issues without clearance from Doctor.  

Hap Sensory match the colour, texture and sensory requirements of each Client and Sensory therapy blankets are matched to (5 to 10%) a person’s body weight, typically 15 to 30 pounds weight for an adult.  The weight is achieved by combining yarns, typically cotton.  The products are washable and the size is tailored to the intended use.”

The weighted blankets and lap pads are used to calm the central nervous system and bring calm, the textures, colours and finishes can be made to order, with variety of fibres, finished with ribbons, buttons and fidgets.
The extreme knitting method also produces throws suitable as wedding gifts.
Haps were knitted wraps Scottish islanders and highlanders used to make, when the hap crossed the Atlantic it became a patchwork blanket in Amish communities in Pennysylvania.
Sensory Hap wraps, blankets and lap pads are made with lots of strands of wool knit together on giant knitting needles. The textures and weight are tailored to make wedding gifts, weighted blankets and smaller items. Sometimes finished with embroidery, fabric backed or decorated.

Biographical Info

I work with flower essences, like Rescue Remedy, crystals and Colour Aura Sprays to bring about balance to the physical and emotional body.

Flower essences are amazing to work with as they can be used by everyone and don’t interfere with any medication and start to help right away.  I offer a flower essence consultation, a bespoke Rainbow Therapy treatment, HypnoBirthing Sessions for couples and emotional resilience workshops for primary age children. I deliver workshops on how to use flower essences on colour therapy and how to use crystals. I love working with people as everyones story is different I am based in Glengormley but am happy to travel.  A few of emotional and physical ailments I can help with is anxiety,  menopause symptoms, teething and stress.

Biographical Info

I am a homeopath based in Glengormley.  I see clients face to face or via Skype for consultations covering health issues from childhood illness, fertility, anxiety & depression to sports injuries.  My client base is wide and varied and so I am privileged to meet and help many different people.  I became interested in homeopathy and natural health primarily because I saw what it did for my own family when my son was small.  The best thing about my job is being with people on their healing journey and seeing the strides they make in they health and in the lives.  It gives me great joy.
