Unique therapy helps Norwich student to fulfil fashion ambition
A Norwich student who used to suffer 10 epileptic seizures a week has seen dramatic improvements in her health and has been able to fulfil her ambition of studying fashion due to a unique therapy.
Tatijana Hall-Roberts, 18, started using the Scotson technique when she was 16. The technique, named after founder Linda Scotson, is centred around massage and increasing the flow of oxygen to the brain.
Norwich University College of the Arts student Tatijana, who lives at Thurston, said: 'My epilepsy has improved.
'The technique is to do with how the pressures are used within massage help with circulation and help oxygen in the blood cells. It then helps the blood come back to the brain. I wouldn't have been able to go to university without it. It is something I never regret doing and it is something that many other people should try. It's very beneficial for those who suffer from brain injuries and autism.'
Since starting the technique, Tatijana has had about three seizures a year.
Her mum Tracey said: 'She had so much more energy, she was able to keep up with conversations again. She began to develop a sense of humour and slimmed down into a lovely well-toned hourglass shape and her eyes gained a real sparkle to them too.'
On November 17, she will showcase her designs at a charity fashion show, Curves in Couture, which will be held at the Tabernackle in London.
