(Member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists)
I have been interested in holistic therapies for over 15 years and taking a natural approach to looking after my own general health and wellbeing. I indulge myself by having regular treatments, so I know the wonderful benefits they can bring to help keep the body in balance. I was drawn to study three ancient therapies that are completely different from each other but each bringing their individual advantages. Over 7 years I gained qualifications in Indian Head Massage VTCT level 3 Diploma, Reiki 1, 2 & 3 to become a Reiki Master Practitioner, Reflexology VTCT level 3 Practitioners Diploma.
My holistic practice was born from my passion for promoting a more natural approach to supporting general health and improving wellbeing through holistic treatments. It is my intention that after your treatment you are left feeling refreshed, de-stressed and feeling much calmer. Some people may need a few sessions to fully feel the benefits of holistic therapies and maintain their wellbeing.
Through COVID-19 I gained a Certificate for Infection Prevention and Control. This is to reassure my clients I am undertaking good hygiene and risk assessment procedures.
As a therapist, I am fully committed to Continued Professional Development (CPD) and each year I engage in a period of study to enhance my skills and knowledge, and also to maintain my registration and insurance with the FHT.
In 2022 I gained Level 2 Certificates for Complimentary Therapies in Cancer Care for Reiki and Reflexology. I have learnt how to work with the client to be adaptable and flexible while providing a gentle and shorter therapy. Cancer diagnosis can bring on physical, emotional and mental challenges. Reiki and Reflexology can help with side effects like pain, anxiety and sickness that cancer treatment can cause, promoting relaxation helping people feel better in their overall wellbeing. People starting, undergoing or just finishing Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy will need permission from their Oncologist Consultant before receiving a treatment to make sure there is no objection to the therapy.
I have just recently completed a Reflexology Lymph Drainage certificate in July 2023 with the founder of this therapy Sally Kay, making me an approved RLD practitioner. Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) is a specialist type of reflexology which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the FEET. It is a gentle and relaxing technique following the lymphatic system anatomically to help reduce swelling and pain. This therapy may be beneficial for people who suffer a chronic condition because it helps with drainage of waste and toxins and helps the immune system to function more efficiently because it is part of the Lymphatic system.
