In 1997, Helena graduated with a Diploma in Bio-Energy from Michael Daltons Bio-Energy Association. Although, she loved this way of working with the energies, after a year of practicing with clients she sought to deepen her understanding of the body. Following an introductory course on Shiatsu, Helena found what she was looking for. She completed her three years studies receiving a Diploma in Shiatsu in 2000. This was to broaden her understanding of the physical, emotional and energetic body and why pain and disease visit us. It taught her how Shiatsu alleviates symptoms and brings balance and relieves tension and stiffness. The combining of these two therapies has resulted in a more beneficial and rounded treatment. Over the years, since practising, in both the corporate and private world, Helena’s clients have found great relief from their symptoms.
It was in 2008 that Helena sought to broaden the public’s awareness, knowledge and understanding of the wonderful and highly beneficial therapy of Shiatsu. She opened Shiatsu College Dublin which is now a thriving educational source for students from all over the country.
As well as director of the college Helena shares her experience through her teaching of Post Graduate courses. She combines her knowledge and experience of both Bio-Energy & Shiatsu to provide CPD courses such as ‘Energy Release for Fibromyalgia’, ‘Tuning into your Intuition’ and ‘Shiatsu Light Body’.
Recently, Helena has joined forces with Northside Fibromyalgia to provide a monthly clinic to its members. The results and feedback have been amazing and Helena hopes to expand this clinic services to many other associations.
