My background, in between raising three children, was mainly clerical, working for as a clerical officer with the NHS and then went into finance, working in a building society. In the early nineties I started going for Reiki treatments, this introduction to Reiki changed my career path. After receiving many treatments I went on to do Usui Reiki First Degree followed six months later by 2nd Degree and ultimately Reiki Master / Teacher. My next course was Hopi Ear Candles followed by Indian Head Massage.
I then went on to do my High National Diploma in Beauty and Holistic Therapies. This was a two year full time course where I was awarded Student of the Year. This course included Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Swedish Massage, Manual and Electrical Facial Treatments, Body Electrical 1 & 2, Electrolysis, Waxing, Manicure and Pedicure, P E Studies, Diet & Nutrition, Psychology, Physics, Anatomy Physiology and Health, Growth Development & Disease, Safe & Hygienic Salon Practices plus the business side of a salon.
Since then I have gained a Teaching Certificate in Baby Massage and Diplomas in Hot Stone Therapy and Natural Lift Facial Massage. I am a member of The UK Reiki Federation and also MICHT.
Gateway are delighted to welcome Ellen to our team early 2008 and to be able to offer our massage and health courses in Scotland by such a dedicated and passionate tutor.
Ellen presented herself professionally and made me feel very welcome and I was able to relax. She was not only knowledgable but friendly also. She was well prepared and was able to demonstrate the technique clearly. She took lots of time when I was unsure of any points and there was no rush. Nothing was too much bother. I intend to do more training with her in the future.
