Restoration Therapies Ruth Hughes
My name is Ruth Hughes, and I am a qualified therapist who is based in Cardiff. I currently work from the Therapeutic Clinic which is found in Cardiff town centre.
Training, qualifications & experience
I graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a BSc Complementary Therapies Degree (2.1). This three year degree course has provided me with diploma qualifications in Holistic Massage (accredited by MTI), Reflexology (AoR) and Clinical Aromatherapy (IFPA).
The course provided a high level of training in Anatomy and Physiology and well as extensive practical knowledge and training in advance massage skills. During my final year I did an 8 week placement working with Marie Curie centre in Penarth to provide reflexology to those who were going through/recovering from cancer treatment.
This was an amazing and humbling opportunity and one I hold very close to my heart. I have also worked within the university's local clinic to the Llandaff area of Cardiff. Outside of my university training I have also attended courses in seated chair massage, and a course on adapting Complementary Therapies for Cancer Care.
i love to continue to learn new skills and develop a better understanding of the body mechanics. Since my degree I have trained in Hot Stone massage and in February 2015 I went to Thailand to study Thai massage.
