Lymphoedema and complementary therapist
Sheera King set up Abundant Wellbeing, in Bridport, at a time when there were very few people or places providing complementary therapies.
Over the past two-and-a-half decades she has become qualified in a range of treatments and is committed to continuous learning and development so that she is always able to offer the highest standard of care.
Sheera also provides tuition in Reiki, Meditation and Bach Flowers.
‘Complementary therapy has played a big part in my own health and wellbeing, as I suffered from chronic asthma and related complications as a child, which meant I would often spend periods of the winter in hospital.
It wasn’t until I moved to Dorset aged 19 that I discovered a more holistic approach to improving my health, first by looking at allergy testing and then by considering how diet and stress could be impacting upon my overall wellbeing.
After seeing excellent results over a period of months, my interest in complementary therapies was ignited and in 1989 I decided to take a course in reflexology, followed by a qualification in aromatherapy in 1990.
At first this sated my interest and my new-found knowledge continued to provide personal health benefits, bringing a calming influence in my life and helping to boost my energy levels.
However, I soon realised that I wanted to learn more about complementary treatments and share this approach with others suffering from ill-health and stress, so that they could enjoy the same results.
I left my successful, office-based career behind and set up Abundant Wellbeing, becoming qualified in Reiki, Bach Flower Essences, Indian Head Massage and Bowen.
I learnt about Manual Lymph Drainage through my work as a voluntary Complementary Healthcare Practitioner for Weldmar Hospice Care Trust in 2005, where I was able to provide support and comfort to patients through my existing treatments.
After seeing how important the treatment is for lymphoedema sufferers, I took two courses in Devon before qualifying in Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy at The Dr Vodder Clinic in Austria.
Manual Lymph Drainage is a very specialised treatment and requires continuous learning, which is why I have also qualified in the Casely-Smith Method of Lymphoedema Management at Singleton Hospital in Swansea.
Helping to improve the quality of life of those I work with is very rewarding, particularly when they may be going through a difficult period in their lives or are suffering discomfort due to illness or disabilities.
Through my work I aim to provide comfort, support and a listening ear.’
