Complementary Therapy Practitioner
I have known Heather initially as a work colleague and then as a friend since 1998. She is an unassuming, upbeat person who always has a smile on her face. Whilst she works in I.T., Heather is in tune with her spiritual side and always displays a positive outlook on life and it was probably this, her strength of mind and determination that helped her beat breast cancer 9 years ago. She fully researched a healthy lifestyle which included Reiki amongst other things and it was at this stage that she found her niche in life and now helps other cancer patients through Coping with Cancer.
My first treatment with Heather was a Reiki session and whilst I wouldn’t say I’m a sceptic, I was unaware what to expect and what the health benefits were. I can only say that the session changed everything for me. It gives me a chance to escape from the stresses and strains of every day life and I’m often known to fall asleep during the treatment! I have also experienced some unique sensations which I won’t detail as they can be different from person to person (and not always experienced) but are nonetheless quite amazing.
Having been bitten by the bug I then booked in for an Indian
head massage. I had had these before at beauty parlours and felt as if I’d
just been slapped around the head. But Heather’s treatment is so much
more and includes face and neck massage but for me, the best bit is the relieving
of knots in my back and shoulder muscles – bliss!
As Heather is always looking to continually expand her knowledge, she has also added organic facials and full body massage to her many talents (all self funded). What can I say on both counts? Superb! I hate it when the facial comes to an end and whilst I cannot usually stand having my feet touched, this wasn’t a problem at all during the full body massage - I loved it as Heather was gentle but not to the point where my feet felt tickled.
Heather always greets you with a warm welcome and is very thorough at the beginning of all sessions to assess your current health and any problems since previous treatments. I cannot decide which is my favourite treatment as they are all fab and choose them depending on how I feel – if I am particularly stressed, I will have Reiki; if I have a big night out coming up I will opt for the organic facial. Treatment usually ends with a glass of water and I always leave with a feeling of euphoria and looking forward to next time. I can highly recommend Heather and any of her treatments – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. JB, Leicester
I have been very lucky to have experienced all of the treatments offered by Heather Holisitics – Reiki, Crystal Therapy, Indian Head Massage and Luxury Holistic Facials. With all of these treatments Heather has demonstrated great passion, knowledge and a clear understanding of how the treatments can help you the most.
With both the Reiki and Crystal Therapy I find that it is interesting to feel the energy in various sensations from heat, colours, tingling etc whilst being deeply relaxing and left me feeling more centred and balanced.
The Indian Head Massage is what I call ‘drool worthy’!! I do a lot of physical work with my upper body and this offers me a great amount of relief from physical tension. It is also supremely relaxing so any mental tension melts away with the physical knots.
The Holistic Facial is pure luxury. The products that are used I adore as they are organic, free from any chemical nasties and smell and feel divine! Again the time is pure indulgence and deeply relaxing and my skin just glows afterwards.
I would recommend Heather in a heartbeat the problem is deciding which treatment to go for!! CA, Leicester
I would just like to say that Heathers work is amazing...it's
so interesting. My horse and I have both had crystals therapy and would recommend
everyone to give it ago. Heather is a lovely person and takes great pride in her work. LG, Leicester
Thank you so much for my Indian Head massage!
It was so relaxing and I felt so comfortable. Can't believe I have never
to have any treatment before!
You certainly have the gift! You put me at ease and I was able to enjoy the
treatment instead of sitting tense!! Before the massage I would wake up a
bit stiff around the shoulder arm area and I've been blaming our not very old
bed! But since the massage your unknotting has done the trick!!
Thanks saved us a new bed! Thank you again. CC, Leicester
is something holding you back?
