About me

My name is Nadia Reid. I am a very quiet, calm and caring person, or so people tell me, and it is impossible for me to describe to you how much I enjoy helping others by helping ease their pain or by teaching them to be more in tune with their bodies as part of a preventive strategy for ongoing good health as well as overall well-being and happiness. All I can say is that doing therapies such as shiatsu, reflexology and reiki, and my related well-being services, such as massage and beauty treatments, is the best expression of who I am in this life and it brings me great joy and fulfilment. I bring that love of what I do to every client I see - it is not something one can force, it just comes naturally. I am passionate about health and well-being and you can read more about it on my page entitled Putting your health and well-being first.

Having told you a little bit about myself and how I feel about my services, I will now set out my credentials for my work and then, if you are interested, you can read a little more about me, my history and what I bring to my clients (see below).

Basic credentials 

I started by learning basic beauty therapy and Swedish massage on an aestheticienne course from 1992-94 (I am an accredited practitioner registered with the highly reputably and internationally recognised Confederation of International Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology, entitling me to use the letters CIBTAC after my name).  Once I started, I wanted to keep on learning and expanding my skills to give a more rounded or “holistic” treatment.  I later trained in reflexology and became a reiki practitioner and then I qualified as a Shiatsu Practitioner/Aesthetician (I completed a 3-year course leading to the Practitioner level and a further post graduate year leading to my becoming an accredited Member of the Register of Professional Practitioners of the Shiatsu Society.

More about me personally, my history and what I bring to my clients

As I have said, I am a quiet person...calm and centred.  I have had my share of life challenges and, like most people, I bring the benefit of and insights from these experiences to my work. They are what made me who I am: a person who loves helping others heal and enhance their overall well-being and find freedom and happiness as a result.  I am told that my calm nature helps calm others and make the massages and other treatments even more effective.

I started my workoing life as a legal secretary but it wasn’t “me”. I began with basic beauty and related massage but expanded my services by constant learning and practice so that today I bring many years experience in a whole variety of treatments most of which I bring together in a treatment (only shiatsu has to be kept entirely separate).  This means that when I see a client, I respond by intuitively feeling what is needed and often bring aspects of some or all of reiki, reflexology and massage. I sometimes bring these even to facial treatments.

When I am giving a massage or other treatment and offering my intuitive insights, I feel a tremendous calm, satisfaction and love for what I do. This energy is passed on through me to my clients when and where it is needed, helping treat what needs treating and leaving my clients feeling much better, usually immediately and sometimes once the effects of my therapies have been processed by the body.
