Live Your Best Life

I applaud you in taking that all-important step towards investing in your health. Better health allows us to enjoy life more and increases our resilience in the face of daily stresses.


Holistic healing enabled my own recovery from years of debilitating pain and ill health helping me to reclaim my life in so many ways.


As much as it sounds like a cliche, for me it really is a case of living my best life ever since I recovered 16 years ago. This does not mean to say life is a breeze, devoid of all problems, but rather I have a more grateful outlook to life and am more resilient. This is because my ill health, largely due to chronic pain symptoms, hugely challenged me emotionally and physically for many years of my life. There were times that I felt very lonely, isolated and fearful for the future, unable to imagine a time I would be living my life without my debilitating back pain and sciatica.

Even though I was told by doctors I could never be pain free, even though I was given the diagnosis of 'slipped disc' at age 19and my MRI scan at age 39 showed Disc Degenerative Disease, even though I was urged to have spinal surgery (which I refused) and was almost confined to a wheelchair, I did not give up looking for a way to heal. 

Dr John Sarno saved my life through my discovery of his work just before I turned 40.


Evidence-based mind body medicine led to my eventual recovery which taught me the power and ability of the mind and body to self-heal, given the right conditions. 

I now passionately work towards helping women to heal from chronic pain and other stress-induced persistent symptoms from the implementation of the mind body medicine strategies. For those who are not suffering from chronic conditions and simply looking to enjoy better health and manage/reduce stress, I offer reflexology and other holistic treatments. 

When you put your faith in Leeds Holistic Health entrusting me with your health issues, you can be assured you will receive nothing short of an excellent service!


My level 5 Mastership in Clinical Professional Reflexology training included studies in Anatomy and Physiology which allow me to service my clients with a high level of skill and expertise. This has been supplemented with further CPD training in Reflexology for Stress, Indian Head Massage, Advanced Facial Reflexology, Facial Cupping, Stress Management Studies and Mindfulness Training.

Stress Less, Live More

I have also completed a Professional Development Training Programme with the Menopause Movement and successfully completed a Practitioners Diploma in Menopause Wellness which allows me to support perimenopausal women suffering from stress-induced pain/symptoms. 


Stress management is an area that I focus on greatly, constantly reiterating the message about the dangers of chronic stress, as well as giving strategies on how to reduce stress in order to help ease symptoms and improve general well-being, no matter what age you are. 

Ladies, whether you are looking to relax and rejuvenate, dispel all that fatigue and negative energy from the body, built up from overwork and stress, or be educated, empowered and supported with my coaching programmes to heal from chronic pain/stress-induced conditions, Shaheen at Leeds Holistic Health is waiting  to help you.
