Anna Galanaki

DS (Dip Shiatsu), NSS (Northern School of Shiatsu), ESS (European School of Shiatsu), OMSTC (Oriental Medicine Shiatsu Training Certificate), NHS (Academy of Natural and alternative Sciences) My name is Anna Galanaki and I was born and raised in Greece. For many years I worked in the Fashion Industry, making sure that people would look as close to perfection as possible. Although I had the opportunity to make them look beautiful it was only about their appearance. My internal need to help people not only look better but also feel better was unfulfilled. As this need was growing bigger and bigger, my decision to turn to Holistic Therapies was an easy one to make. I had finally found purpose in my life. My first Diplomas had to do with Holistic Massage and Facial, Aroma and Hot Stones Therapies. This initation to the Holistic approach of the Being was the first motive for me to start researching the Ancient Greek Medicine. The Elements, the Laws of Nature, the power of Emotions, the power of Herbs, they were all there! What a different approach from the Western Medicine that we are used to! I realised then that the knowledge of Western Sciences of Anatomy, Pathology and Physiology were only the additional tools to work with. From Ancient Greek Medicine to the Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shiatsu was the most natural next step to make and the most fascinating of all other Therapies to choose. Practising Shiatsu means that you keep on observing, searching and studying until you find the way to treat the cause of the disease and not the symptom. The Art of Healing! After having my first Shiatsu Diploma in Athens, which was followed by other bodywork techniques like Sotai, and as my School is a branch of the European Shiatsu School of London, I decided to have my second Diploma here in the UK. The Northern School of Shiatsu based in Sheffield gave me that opportunity. Many CPD Certificates with expert Teachers from all over the world  followed. The Aim is always the same: Helping people!

DipRemMassage* (SSNT), CertIV Massage** (SSNT), CFP*** (Australian Feldenkrais Institute), FGUK, MLD UK – CDT/DLT (Vodder), CNHC reg. Movement is life. Without movement, there is no life. I love working with people who want to improve their quality of life, and I do that by helping them improve their quality of movement. I have always loved giving massages – as a teenager my friends used to ask me to sort out sore necks, backs and shoulders. While studying music performance as a classical singer at university in Melbourne, Australia, I was introduced to all sorts of body work modalities, including remedial massage and the Feldenkrais Method. Eventually my natural interest and skill turned into a trained professional career, which I was following whilst doing a masters degree in music performance. I ran my own business, the Opera Studio & Wellbeing Centre, which combined all three interests. My clients ranged from students to professional musicians, singers, actors and athletes, from children to aged and palliative care. They included people with healthy bodies wishing to improve their day to day functionality or performance, people with acquired brain injuries, chronic pain, CFS, CP, MS, Parkinsons, stroke patients, amputees, mental health issues, rehab clients and pregnant women. There were labourers, office workers, managers, firefighters, farmers, artists. There were children with development or learning difficulties. There were people wanting to function better in their everyday life, at work and at home. I taught Feldenkrais classes at the Victorian College of the Arts and Music, University of Melbourne to Music, Drama, Dance and Music Theatre students. I also taught massage and remedial massage at the Victorian Fitness Academy. I now live in Sheffield, and have joined the team at Therapy Room Sheffield. I am passionate about helping my clients feel better, and work towards the optimal functioning of their body. Anything you are good at, you can get better at! What is it that you are interested in? What are you curious about? Are you making the most comfortable and efficient use of your body? Do you want to move more freely? Make an appointment, and let’s see what we can discover together. *Diploma of Remedial Massage, **Certificate IV Massage Therapy Practice – Southern School of Natural Therapies, Melbourne Australia; ***CFP= Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner (Melb3 FPTP), MMusPerf (VCAM), BMus (Uni Melbourne), CertIV TAE, DBS Check, CNHC registered Remedial & Sports Massage In a remedial massage session, I use a variety of techniques tailored to each individual client. These may include elements of, but are not limited to, myofascial release, Shiatsu, resistance stretching, deep tissue massage, reflexology, effleurage, petrissage, MET, trigger points, joint and limb movements, acupressure, sports massage, intra-oral work, and oscillation. Feldenkrais Method The Feldenkrais Method is a learning method based in movement. It breaks down the patterns and habits we form over our lifetime, exploring them in a gentle and non-judgemental way, and rebuilds the patterns so we can move more easily and efficiently. 1:1 lessons are called Functional Integration lessons, or FI. These are usually on a Feldenkrais table, which is shorter and wider than a normal massage table. The practitioner uses touch, movement, and guided awareness to help direct the attention and curiosity of the client (or student). Often movement patterns are broken down into smaller components and explored out of context. When the separate components are linked back together, there is often more detail, awareness and choice of movement available. There are also voice led classes, usually in groups, called Awareness Through Movement lessons, or ATM. These also explore movement patterns, and the student is encouraged to discover more about their own movements, habits and patterns via small, comfortable movements. I am a member of the Feldenkrais Guild UK. Manual Lymphatic Drainage – Combined Decongestive Therapy/Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy (MLD CDT/DLT) The Vodder method of manual lymphatic drainage is recommended for a wide range of conditions. The relaxing and decongesting effects of this gentle therapy can be surprisingly powerful for acute as well as chronic symptoms. My advanced training in this method, combined decongestive therapy/decongestive lymphatic therapy means also that I can treat lymphoedema clients, including measuring and bandaging.

Kasia Andrulewicz

SCMT dip, MTI reg., CNHC reg. Massage found me somewhat unexpectedly. I always enjoyed it as a receiver, but never thought that massaging another person would be equally enjoyable. When I did the introductory training with the Sheffield Centre for Massage Training (SCMT) I was quite surprised how natural it felt to actually give massage. There was no question but for me to join the advanced training for professional therapeutic massage. Studying with SCMT made it even more evident to me that a good massage brings relief not only to aching muscles and joints, but also eases pain in our hearts and souls, filling them with comfort and peace. For this to happen, the client has to trust that his or her therapist is competent, non-judgemental, honest and respectful of boundaries. The client-centred holistic approach and focus on the therapeutic relationship that was part of my training not only ensures this invaluable build-up of trust but also a massage uniquely adapted to the client’s needs. Each massage session is as different as your needs are on a given day, and the variety of techniques and pressure is chosen according to what you are bringing to the session. I have a special interest in trigger point therapy and myofascial release, and put an emphasis on these areas in my continuous professional development. Regardless of whether you have previously had many massages or none, I would feel very privileged to work with you and be part of your journey to better health and a balanced lifestyle.
