Welcome to Healing Hands - Complimentary Therapies by Darren Kail
In 2001 I trained at the Royal National College for the Blind, to become a
Remedial Therapist, where I gained an I.T.E.C Diploma in Swedish massage,
Indian Head Massage & Reflexology. The following year I gained a B.T.E.C.
Diploma, in Sports Massage Therapy at the London School of Sports Massage,
recognised by the Sports Massage Association. I am now additionally qualified
in On-Site Chair Massage & Aromatherapy.
While previously working as a Fitness Instructor I had the opportunity to
compete in judo for Great Britain, in the Sydney and Athens Paralympic
Games as well as the World Judo Championships, held in Rome, Paris and Canada. While training as an international judo player I soon learnt to appreciate what Complementary Therapies, especially Sports/Deep Tissue Massage had to offer and once qualified I had the opportunity to massage in the South of France, Brazil, Germany and Italy. After completing the advanced gym apprenticeship in 2008, I decided I would improve my career by teaching studio fitness classes as well. At present I still teach Circuit Training, Spinning and Pilates at the local Leisure Centres, based in Enfield.
My complementary Therapy business generally operates from the Winchmore Osteopaths, in Winchmore Hill and Keats Health Complementary Therapy Clinic, in Enfield Town. I also offer home visits for an additional £5.
As well as keeping up to date with alternative Therapies I have recently finished a Foundation Degree in Rehab Work Visual Impairment, in order to assist people adapt to life with having sight loss. On top of my work commitments and continued professional development courses I attend. I am also a busy family man with two young boys and a wife. The latest course I attended was related to working as an Eye Clinic Liaison Officer with the NHS. I have recently started a part time job as a Resource Centre Support Worker for Thomas Pocklington Trust and while working with people that have sight loss I also intend to run a successful complementary Therapy practice.
'After splitting up with my ex wife I felt really depressed & couldn't face, going to work. Since receiving aromatherapy with Darren I have felt much better and have gone back to work full time after starting back on a part time basis.' - Andy
