I joined the health and fitness industry 24 years ago. I initially trained as a fitness instructor teaching freelance in all areas of West Yorkshire. I taught a variety of fitness classes for 14 years ranging from Aerobics, Step aerobics, Phenomenal Abdominals, Hip and Thigh attack, Body conditioning, Boxercise, Circuits and Fitness yoga (based on vinyasa flow yoga). I worked with Castleford Tigers Rugby team between 2000 and 2003, teaching Fitness Yoga, aiming to improve their flexibility and focus.
My passion is teaching and helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. I started to research and experience alternative therapies, and made the decision to move more in the direction of therapies. In 1999 I started to train in Complementary therapies and became qualified in Reflexology in June 2000, I have continually continued my education upon seeing the benefits they can provide, in order to provide the best possible treatments to my clients.
Reiki is an ancient form of Japanese healing involving the transference of concentrated natural healing energy. This promotes a feeling of relaxation allowing the body to heal itself.
The energy is channelled through the practitioner's hands to clear, strengthen and heal energy pathways of the body. This allows life force to flow in a natural, healing way to help cleanse the body. The treatment activates the body's natural ability to heal itself.
A treatment lasts approximately 50 minutes, in which time, the patient remains fully clothed. The practitioner will gently place their hands in various positions on or just above the patient.
The treatment usually provides a very relaxing experience, although it will take a Reiki accelerates the body's own natural healing process on physical, mental and emotional levels, treating the body as a whole to create a sense of balance and harmony.
