Shine Holistic in Stoke Newington practising bodywork and offering personal yoga classes. I also work in Canary Wharf for BP Oil. Over the years I have built up a large client base who come with a wide range of conditions,

problems, auto-immune conditions, hormonal imbalances, to stress.
At BP I treat clients on a one-to-one basis, teach a regular Meditation
class and teach Chair Yoga. My specialist areas of work are stress management, pregnancy
and rehabilitation of injuries old and new. In recent years I have become interested in our immune
system and the rise in more complex bacterial and viral infections and am qualified in the Dr Vodder Manual
Lymphatic Drainage Technique. It is fantastic for helping the immune system to work
Encouraging my clients to take an interest in their own health and well-being is key to their progress. I support them in terms of offering natural self-help tools regarding the use of essential oils, herbs, homeopathic remedies, meditation, relaxation techniques and yoga. I am part of a network of holistic health practitioners and where appropriate, I can refer clients to other practitioners.
I teach a weekly drop-in Meditation class at One Life Studio in Stoke Newington on Fridays and hold monthly meditation workshops. Please see that page for the latest information.
Always looking to increase my knowledge and studies, I am very excited to be on the Yoga Teacher Training Diploma course with YogaCampus.
I can honestly say that I love my work and I very much enjoy
the variety that my work brings and the broad range of people I meet!
I am a member of The International Federation of
Reflexologists, MLD UK, Reiki and Seichem Association and hold Professional Liability Insurance.
