A happy, healthy team is a productive team, and as a former executive producer for ITV, and a Senior Producer for the BBC, Channel 4 and others, Jackie understands completly what it means to live ‘with stress’. Stress and adranaline at best can drive us forward, excite us and encourage new ideas, at worst it can cause the body to break-down as all the bodies systems start to get over-worked and break-down, leading to issues with IBS, migraines, insomnia, muscle tension, continous coughs and colds, repetative strain injuries, tinnitus and more.
Jackie and her team can come into your offices to provide massage, yoga, mindfulness or stress-management coaching. So far The Orange Grove Clinic has worked with such companies as John Lewis, Waitrose, BBC East, Flagship, TRO amongst others.
