Lesley Lister - Sheffield
My massage training was with the Academy of Natural Health based in Neals Yard, Covent Garden, London. I qualified in Holistic Massage, Anatomy and Physiology with both MTI and ITEC in May 2000. I have worked with a wide range of clients and conditions in private practice in London, Newark and Sheffield . During my time in London, I worked at Phoenix House, a residential care centre helping substance abusers rebuild their lives. Massage was introduced to support the recovery programme and proved very beneficial.
I have a particular interest in the effectiveness of massage in helping with mental health problems including anxiety and depression. Since 2012, I have volunteered regularly as a massage therapist in Sarajevo (Bosnia & Herzegovina) with the charity 'Healing Hands Network', working with those still suffering trauma from the Bosnian War. We treat a range of physical and mental health conditions including PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). www.healinghandsnetwork.co.uk
The birth of my daughter Katie, now 16 years old, introduced me to infant massage and I qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) in March 2002. Between 2003-2005 I ran Baby Massage classes for Newark & Sherwood Sure Start. Lesley also has specific expertise for massage in pregnancy.
