North London Mums has a really useful directory of local North London businesses and every week we will introduce you to one of the businesses who advertise with us.
This week we want to tell you about Rakhee Shah, a complementary therapist who owns the business "Have a Massage" and who advertises in our Alternative and Complimentary Therapies Section.
Rakhee Shah is a complementary therapist based in New Barnet, Herts. She is also a mother to 3 year old twins. A business analyst by profession, she started to study complementary therapy as a hobby and set up Have a Massage about 8 years ago, working full time with it for the last 5 years. Have a Massage specialises in a range of treatments which include Holistic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Pregnancy/Post Natal Massage, Fertility/Maternity Reflexology and Baby Massage (One on One and group classes). Rakhee has an impressive list of qualifications, and as a member of the Federation of Holistic therapists she is always keeping her knowledge up to date.
Rakhee herself had to undergo IVF in order to conceive her wonderful twins, and says that this was a key influence in deciding to give up city life: "Part of my decision to leave my city life was when we found out we had conception issues and IVF was our only route to conceive our wonderful twins. Coming from an Indian background where the ayurvedic/holistic approach is greater than the conventional, I felt that this was the route to try and pursue to help with the conceiving and get our bodies into the best way possible. I am now a supportive ear to those undergoing IVF who need great support during this very hard and tough period."
Rakhee also wanted to have more time to spend with her children. "I do believe money is not everything and that you have everything you need in your family life. It’s not always easy but can work." Since trading her city career Rakhee says she has never looked back.
With her experience of city life, and as a mum of twins, Rakhee can fully understand the stresses and strains of daily life and tailors her therapies to the individual needs of her clients. Rakhee gets lots of positive feedback from her clients for her naturally healing hands and a down to earth nature. "I like helping people and it’s nice to see the results on a client after they have been treated by me."
