About

Leeds Holistic 
Massage Therapist
I'm Gerry Andrews and Shan Holistic Massage Therapy is my therapeutic and remedial massage practice for each of my clients in Leeds
I have a Diploma in Holistic Massage, Anatomy and Physiology and am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I am a member of the Massage Training Institute (MTI) and the Northern Massage Association. 
I trained at the highly respected Sheffield Centre for Massage Training (SCMT) under Vicky Gaughan, and originally in Leeds with Sean Doherty, both respected and gifted therapists and bodyworkers.

My background
My passion for massage is part of a family tradition inherited from my Burmese grandmother from the Shan mountain state of Burma. Holistic massage is something I have grown up with and have benefitted from as an active sportsman for over 35 years. 
I also have a professional background in managing and working with people and organisations in community work in Leeds, customer relations and conflict management, and appreciate the need to cope with stress and the troubles that life can throw at us. 

What I do

As a holistic massage therapist I don't just look to treat the symptoms. My aim is to work with the 'whole person' to achieve the resolution and balance they are seeking - whether that is to treat pain caused by a sporting injury or a fall, or to help relieve tensions caused by stress or simply to unwind and relax. 
By working with massage to soften the body's defensive 'armouring' and re-connect with its natural energy, I aim to release held tension and free old fixed patterns in the body.
Call me in Leeds to learn more about this powerful treatment.

Types of massage

I draw from a wide palette of techniques as part of my holistic massage, ranging from subtle energy work to deep remedial tissue work, including trigger point therapy, myofascial release and other neuro-muscular techniques, as well as passive joint manipulation and light energetic touch.
No two massage treatments will be alike; it depends on what you bring to the table and what you may need on the day.
As well as treating you at my clinics in Horsforth, Cookridge and Central Leeds, I can show you how you can treat yourself, simply and effectively. This will help reduce the number of times you'll need to see someone like me - and you can learn how to be in charge of your own body.
