Rachel Lead

Massage Therapist in Stradbroke

I continue in my quest to help people, and as always, this creates an ever enquiring interest in complementary health care. My training in massage & reflexology led me to finding a Touch for Health Instructor in 1993. From then on my committment was TFH/Bodywork/Kinesiology. I am excited and passionate by the application of this "hands" on work with clients. I am full of enthusiasm within my teaching/practice to share and teach my knowledge gained over the years....I have found my path in life and I would like to help others find their way...

I love living and working in Suffolk with my husband Keith and family...walking our labrador dog Poppy...swimming and Zumba...

Background & Qualifications

I trained in Remedial Massage at the Northern Institute, Blackpool, in 1992 and then subsequently studied and qualified in Reflexology in 1993...I then needed to know more... and I found Carrie Jost who initially taught me TFH, and I completed the TFH Instructors training (International Kinesiology College - IKC) in 1995, alongside Advanced Kinesiology, now called Creative Kinesiology. I met Natalie Davenport at my IKC Instructor course and we shared our rapport of bodywork. I completed Perceptual Bodywork (PB) training with Natalie Davenport in 2002. My love of ‘hands on bodywork' along with encouragement and mentoring from Natalie led to my repeating PB, so that I could teach this particular course. I completed my Cert Ed in 2010 at Brookes University, Oxford. I continue with my own personal self-development, so I can find ways to help people in my practice...and with my teaching skills... to help with the development of new practitioners and teachers of the future...

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

An Initial consultation takes place - this is for the client to explain their needs and wishes. Every session is unique, and upon discussion, a combination of the skills I have acquired over the years is used...of bodywork, TFH and Kinesiology.
Posture is evaluated and ‘Energy Balancing' techniques are applied using the sense of ‘touch' and ‘test' - muscle monitoring, among other bodywork applications

This work is co- creative, between the client and the practitioner, allowing me to use my ‘listening and observational' skills.
As a health educator, energy exercises will be encouraged for home use by the client. This will enable changes to be made and embodied for positive well - being.

My prices vary accordingly to the client, and depending on time slot...£35 - £60.
