How I got started

My interest in holistic therapy began in the 1980′s with an interest in essential oils and their healing applications. After a reflexology session from a student in 1991 I had a wonderful healing response - 6 weeks of stubborn sinusitis went in 24 hours and my future path became clear - I made a career change to be a complementary therapist.

I began training in Reflexology and Massage, both of which I am now trained to an advanced level. Since then I have continued training – fitting work around my growing family, adding an impressive list of qualifications shown below.

In 2010 I began training in the advanced form of massage known as ‘No Hands’ – using the soft part of the forearm and body weight to apply pressure. This is a truly holistic massage for the therapist applying awareness of breath, posture, pressure, awareness of client etc. at an advanced level. My massage has improved beyond belief following the second year with ‘Massage Mastery’ training which enabling me to work at many different depths and speeds as well as Deep Tissue massage training.

Training, qualifications & experience


Includes Social Services and NHS.

First qualified in 1994 with Reflexology and Swedish Massage. Since then I have studied a variety of bodywork therapies listed below which includes advanced forms of massage, reiki, energy healing and reflexology. I have worked in the Great Yarmouth area for 18 years.

Norfolk County Council awarded a shared contract with Great Yarmouth Social Services and offered the whole contract to Zena in 2006 – it ran for a total 8 years before being cut back in 2010. The contract was to provide supportive therapeutic treatments to carers of disabled adults enabling them to cope with the high stress lifestyle of a full time carer. There was also some funding for the service users – people with disabilities often needing a high level of care.

Clients were in very stressful situations and my experience also includes treating an impressively wide variety of health conditions and disabilities. EG Client with no arm movement had movement restored with massage after NHS physiotherapists refused to treat as they concluded he could not be helped. Sessions includes support to those who look after terminally ill loved ones, both during the illness and grieving process.

The contract included people with:

Unstable diabetes and asthma
Cold hard muscles from broken bones
Joint replacements
Paralysis due to brain hemorrhage
I am experienced in treating people in wheelchairs and bedridden.

Current position

My treatment rooms are in Caister on Sea and mobile sessions.  For business clients I will also travel to the Norwich area.

My training is ongoing as I love to learn and expand my knowledge. During 2012 courses will include more Deep Tissue specialist training.
