Joanne specialises in relaxation and stress relief treatments tailored to treat the individual both physically and emotionally. In 2010 she qualified as a
Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation
Instructor and also a
Stress and Wellbeing Instructor and combines the skills to enhance her treatments. Joanne is fully insured and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapist.
She had worked for over ten years in the financial business until one day the Doctor told her she was on the verge of a nervous breakdown due to stress at work. He suggested she looked at her job to decide if it was worth risking her health over. The company were not very helpful in looking at a compromise and they parted company with Joanne looking for a new direction and a healthier lifestyle.
Joanne first studied Swedish/relaxation massage and her interest grew from there into finding treatments that could help reduce anxiety and stress. Indian Head Massage is her favourite treatment to practice and receive and she has taken additional courses to make her treatments varied and adaptable to the needs of different clients, including a certificate course in adapting Indian Head Massage for clients with cancer. Indian Head Massage promotes relaxation and can be helpful in treating stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, and sinusitis. Indian Head Massage helps restore your body to a natural balance and enhance your health and wellbeing.
As a Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation instructor she can advise on simple ways to cultivate awareness and relate to thoughts and feelings more effectively. Mindfulness based stress relief techniques developed by Jon Kabat- Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical centre in the US have been used for over 30 years to help with stress, anxiety, chronic pain and general well being.
Joanne is a mobile therapist and can bring relaxation, calm and total escape to your own front room.
