Suzi TaitAromatherapy Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor

I qualified with two Diploma Certifications in Body Massage ( IHBC ) and Aromatherapy Massage ( IIHHT ) in 1995 and 1996 .

Going on to complete a Yoga teacher training course in 2004 ( PYT ) .

In my early twenties , I discovered the great many benefits of Holistic Massage after receiving several treatments from an Aromatherapist friend of mine , who inspired and encouraged me to train in this field .

My discovery and passion for Yoga came from my time away travelling through India. On my return to the UK I attended many classes to help me gain extra knowledge and yoga techniques to help aid my practise. I then devoted some time to this almost daily for eight years, before undergoing my Yoga Teacher training in 2003/4.

One of my main interests as a Massage Therapist is in women’s health and wellbeing.

I have worked on several women’s wellbeing retreats in Rye and also in Normandy, France.

I have a special interest in helping women realise the importance of taking care of their bodies and the equanimity of their mind, to help reduce the stresses and tensions that may have built up within their bodies, due to a busy work or home life, or both . I therefore encourage them to give something back of value to themselves again.

I have run several Yoga groups for Pre-School aged children , Primary School children and also for Teenagers attending Secondary School.

More recently I have set up Chair Yoga sessions for residents in several care homes across East Sussex , assisting residents to move more freely and to help those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia to increase their coordination and muscle memory.

My other special interest in Yoga Therapy is to help assist and enable those new to Yoga to gain confidence , clarity and peace of mind in their own practise .

Other qualifications and courses:

My top tips for clients ,
