Name: Sylwia Lekan

When and where did you train?

I studied at a leading massage school Quantum Metta. I started my first course in 2008 and continued studying until 2011 to gain my various qualifications.

 

Why did you become Therapist?

In 2006 I suffered from a major back injury. I was in constant pain initially and could barely walk.

I found massages very helpful; I can honestly say they got me back on my feet. It was not only the physical side of it, I was still learning about my condition, I had to change whole approach to life – it was very stressful for me as I was simply scared of future. Massage and the therapists helped me cope with stress.

I always enjoyed massage prior to my injury.  As I was keen on natural approach to health and healing becoming a massage therapist seemed like a good idea.

So I studied, qualified and become a therapist, and it was best decision I could have made! I love my job, it’s very rewarding and fulfilling, and nothing replaces the smiles’ of the clients feeling pain free after the massage session.

Tell us a joke

More of funny story, One of my clients loves to have head massage incorporated into the treatment.

One of the techniques is tugging and pulling hair. One day she said:

“I should take a picture of you doing it to me and send it to my little sister. She won’t believe I’m actually asking you to do it to me!!!
