Bernie is a multi-therapist and artist based in Whitstable. Her interest in holistic therapies developed over the years while raising her family and immersing herself in a busy full time career in education. As an education consultant she frequently worked with people who were suffering from the side effects of stress in the work place. Inspired to set up an on-site massage company and go part time in her education role, she also worked in a healing clinic at the College of Psychic Studies in South-Kensington.
She is a qualified practitioner in a number of therapies including massage, hypnotherapy, reiki and healing and is a British Wheel of Yoga teacher.
Originally an Essex girl, I came to Kent to pursue a career with the Civil Service. I discovered complementary therapies quite by chance, after signing up for an introduction to aromatherapy course at Adult Ed. This led on to doing a reflexology qualification, again just for interest. After 14 years in the Civil Service I was feeling less than fulfilled, and decided it was time for a complete career change. I gradually learned more therapies, then took the plunge.I am now a qualified practitioner in foot and face reflexology, reflexology lymphatic drainage (RLD), Swedish massage and Indian head massage, as well as being a qualified hypnotherapist and Master NLP practitioner. As well as working at KMSTC, I run a private practice in Canterbury.
Iuliana, a complementary therapist originally from Romania, discovered more than ten years ago the benefits of reflexology as a great tool to rebalance the body, especially after an illness. This led her to extend her knowledge in massage techniques and reflexology both in her own country and the UK.
Iuliana spent several months travelling around China and whilst there adopted the Far Eastern philosophy of treating the body as a whole which encouraged her to become a Reiki therapist and by practicing in different environments from gym to salon inspired her to use her knowledge to enhance the effects of massage and reflexology on the body and thereby promoting the total well being of each client.
