ABOUT ME

Fiona Ridgwell  ITEC, Cert CBS

Welcome from Fiona

 

Alongside my therapy business, I also work part-time as a primary school teacher - I find this helps me to relate to all sorts of people and it's incredible for keeping me grounded - children have an uncanny knack of making you smile, regardless of how stressed you're feeling, and I find teaching very rewarding. However, I also felt I wanted to do something for 'me' so, having reassessed what I wanted out of life, I chose to train in holistic massage. Alongside this, I studied Anatomy and Physiology and achieved my ITEC qualifications. Since then I've trained in a number of other therapies so I can offer clients a wider range of treatments. More recently, I qualified in the Bowen Technique - I'd experienced such amazing results myself from this gentle, non-invasive therapy that I simply had to offer it as a specialism to my clients and it has now become the main focus of my business.

 

My interest in complementary therapies began in my late teens when I needed to see a chiropractor to treat my chronic back pain and debilitating migraines. I'd been a keen horse-rider since I was a child and was competing at a high level.... sadly it had all taken its toll on my back and neck, and conventional medicine was, I felt, only masking underlying problems. The treatment was generally successful but I was, from then on, much more conscious of what my body was telling me. I've since invested in a wide range of treatments myself: regular Bowen Therapy for ongoing 'maintenance' of aches, pains and for general well-being and other more 'pampering' treatments for nothing more than relaxation and pleasure - I really do feel they've helped on many levels. This journey of discovery not only helped me to address my own problems but opened up a fantastic world of simple, holistic, yet highly effective, therapies and techniques that have now helped many clients in a multitude of ways. 

 

I'm passionate about what I do and continue to update my skills and knowledge by further training and CPD (Continuing Professional Development). 

 

If you'd like to book an appointment, or have a no-obligation chat about any of the therapies I offer or your suitability, please get in touch...

 

Best wishes, Fiona - Zenergy Holistic Therapies & Bowen Technique
