Massage (Holistic)

This involves a variety of techniques designed to relax muscles, increase oxygen in the blood and release toxins from muscles. Stroking in the direction of the heart stimulates circulation and flushes the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes, all of which help shorten recovery time after muscle strain. As well as providing specific medical benefits, holistic massage improves general health and wellbeing.

I have been working as a Complementary Therapist for 8 years. Since I was a child I have always felt a deep infinity with nature which sparked my interest in Holistic Therapies. I look to natural forms of healing as way of treating mind, body and spirit , which with all the day to day stresses of modern life can become out of balance, creating tension and illness , both physically and mentally in ourselves.
I am trained in a wide range of therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage and  Seated Acupressure as well as Spa treatments such as Scrubs , Body Wraps and Facials.
Many of these therapies originated in the Far East thousands of years ago and their roots can be found in Ayurvedic and  Chinese traditions. They treat the person as a whole rather than the isolated symptoms. Massage and reflexology not only relax the body and mind, but boost the immune system, release natural endorphins that can combat depression and anxiety, aid lymphatic drainage and blood circulation, tone the muscles, and release blockages in the energy channels  resulting in increased vitality and energy.
I believe the more we listen to our body’s messages the more it responds with increased health and vitality. We all deserve a bit of time out for ourselves to relax, switch off and recuperate in an environment where we can feel tranquil and safe. Holistic Therapies are to me a stepping stone on the pathway to self love, self awareness and spiritual development, where the needs of our body , mind and spirit are nurtured as a whole.

I trained at BCMB and I am a MTI registered, Holistic Massage Therapist. I feel passionate about massage and aim to provide a caring, non-judgemental touch, with the intention to nurture and heal. I feel it is an honour to be able to support people on their journey to health and wellbeing through massage.

I realised quite quickly that I wanted to develop my knowledge and understanding to focus more upon working with women, particularly during their pregnancy and into their postnatal period. So I signed up to complete the Massage & Pregnancy Diploma with Well Mother, a course and syllabus which is seen as the global gold standard for pregnancy massage.

I now offer bespoke treatments to both men and women, specifically tailored to suit the clients individual needs, drawing from a wide range of techniques, from subtle energy work to deep tissue methods; from stretching and mobilization to gentle holds. By working in a client centred way and taking into account the emotional as well as the physical, I treat my clients as a whole, offering treatments that leave you feeling relaxed, revived and invigorated.

Shireen was first introduced to Complementary Therapy through meeting a Reflexologist whilst training as an Adult Nurse at Oxford Brookes in 2002. It inspired her to want to learn about the preventative perspective of health care and how it was just, if not more, important in helping and educating others’ in dis-ease and health.

Shireen trained in a Complementary Therapies Diploma at the City of Bath College and qualified in 2006. She also qualified as a Traditional Thai Master practitioner Diploma in 2008 at the Highly esteemed Body Harmonics Centre in Cheltenham. As an experienced holistic practitioner Shireen is continually developing her skills and furthering her knowledge in holistic health and nutrition through reading, research, attending talks and workshops and has a deep, extensive knowledge and understanding of the human body through various studies and nursing.

I gained a special interest in holistic health, wellness and natural beauty on my travels around the world. Having worked in the fashion industry for many years and still modelling well into my fifties -I have had a vested interest in how to look and feel ones best totally naturally!

I am trained in Reiki, Cranio-Sacral Therapy , Reflexologist AOR and specialise in maternity treatments often combining aromatherapy, massage and reflexology. Rejuvanessence and Facial Energy Release- face therapy. Qualified in Advanced Massage in 1990 and became an IFPA registered Aromatherapist and Rejuvanessence® practitioner in 1991.

My treatments often draw on a mélange of all these techniques with a strong holistic lean; I offer advice on how to optimise health naturally with life- style and supplements suggestions whilst complementing any conventional medical treatment. In a busy and often stressful world I believe that treatments can restore and revive the person, as well as offering support whilst going through a stressful time, recovering from illness, low energy or grief. Treatments can help to release pent up stress and tension to help you regain balance.

I have run many practitioner trainings since 2004 /2013 for The International Institute of Rejuvanessence and now run practitioner trainings in Facial Energy Release-face therapy.

As well as looking younger, clients often say that they feel invigorated, rejuvenated, healing.  Blissfully hypnotic touch works on lymph, acupuncture points releasing blocked energy and tension.

Since I first trained as a holistic therapist, I have constantly updated my skill and knowledge.  Now I offer a wide range of holistic treatments and, depending on your needs or conditions I carefully choose your treatment plan with you. All my treatments are tailor made to ensure you have a truly holistic experience.

I use combinations of different techniques for my massages which allow me to range from a firm pressure to a delicate touch, which helps to release the tension seated in any depth of tissue.
I have an extensive knowledge of aromatherapy and use this for my treatments. Aromatherapy and holistic treatments work wonderfully together and I take pride in this combination which helps not only reduce physical problems but may also bring emotional relief as well. My treatments are always based on ‘de-stressing’ and you can feel both physically and mentally lighter after my treatment.

Maternity and gynaecological care also feature heavily in my range of treatments. My extensive training in this field brings a deep understanding of the needs of women and enables me to extend my treatments to help with hormonal, physical and emotional changes for any stages of women’s life.

I’m passionate about many forms of alternative health and complementary medicine, but holistic massage therapy is my chosen path of expertise. I started out on a completely different path in life, studying politics and economics up to Master’s level at the London School of Economics. After spending a few years working for some well-known international organisations, I took the decision to embark on a career change to pursue my passions of holistic healing and organic living.

After gaining some experience in these areas during my travels around the world, I returned home and studied to MTI level 4 (CertHE) in Holistic Massage Therapy under a master Osteopath and Massage Therapist. This course also included a solid grounding in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, so if you suffer from a chronic musculoskeletal or immune disorder, I’ll approach your needs as an individual. However, should you simply need a relaxing massage, you will be in good hands too!
