My name is Aarti Shah and I qualified as a McTimoney Chiropractor in 1989 and have been working continuously throughout that period taking McTimoney Chiropractic to Bahrain, Singapore, Nepal and Europe. I have been running established clinics in London since 1995. My clients range from 3 years old to 90 years of age and even 3 generations from the same family.
As no individuals are identical, my sessions are tailored to get the best for each patient’s return to good health. I firmly believe in continually striving to improve my treatments through my own self-development as it is imperative to lead by example and be the best for my clients. My aim is to prevent the recurrence of clients’ complaints, emphasising lifestyle changes, dietary advice, stress management, and exercise programmes, discouraging dependence on continuing treatments as a long term solution to problems. I focus instead on prevention.
All Chiropractors in United Kingdom have to be state regulated and adhere to a Code of Practice set by the General Chiropractic Council. I am a full member of both the General Chiropractic Council and the McTimoney Chiropractic Association and have to meet their requirements annually to continue my membership.
In addition I am recognised by various private Health Insurance Companies that will pay for my sessions if your individual health policy covers it. I also liaise with Doctors, Physiotherapists and other professionals that work with the musculoskeletal structure and often get referrals from them.
Prior to creating 'In Perfect Harmony', I was not in a good place mentally or spiritually. After coming out of an abusive marriage and being forced to move away from my loved ones, I had a lot of health problems, including depression and chronic fatigue. It was at this time I first discovered holistic therapies and I fell in love! Reiki particularly resonated with me as it seemed to revive my sense of self and belonging. When I was strong enough, I began studying and practising Reiki myself.
I had previously discovered the importance of touch as I trained as a breastfeeding counsellor and birthing/post-natal Doula, as well as mothering five children of my own. I am a driven holistic therapist, motivated to teach others the importance of touch - how it can nurture and heal you. Whilst on my own personal healing journey i also trained as a Reflexologist, a massage therapist, baby massage instructor, a meditation teacher and a life coach.
Combining all of the therapies that I am trained in and my own personal experiences, I now offer Holistic health coaching, which is tailored to each persons individual needs. It is my mission to help as many people as possible to enhance their lives through various types of massage, level 5 clinical reflexology, and Reiki (of which I am a master/teacher)

Corinne Blum, MASC, is a Life Coach, Mentor and Relationship Expert with over twelve years experience working with clients, running workshops and giving talks. She is also the co-founder of Evolve Wellness Centre.
Corinne’s personal journey began when she was twenty one years old and was forced, due to an injury, to leave her profession as a ballet dancer with the San Francisco Ballet. She found herself asking the question, “Who am I without the identity of being a dancer?
That question catapulted her deeper into her own practice and lifelong journey of understanding what it is to be human. What is it to be our Authentic Self underneath who we think we should be according to what society, parents, peers expect us, or tells us, to be.
Her passion is to guide people back home to who they truly are. To help them embrace their fears, understand the language of their emotions and build perhaps the most important relationship we’ll ever be in: our relationship to ourselves.
She works with both individuals and couples. The focus always comes back to our relationship with ourselves and our self-worth, but she also works on supporting singles to manifest a relationship in alignment with their Authentic Self, as well as working with couples who would like to improve their relationship or who need support consciously uncoupling.
Her work is very experiential. She believes that there is nothing wrong, nothing to fix, only parts of us that need our loving attention. She says her role is to be a guide who gently walks you home towards yourself so that you feel safe, comfortable and empowered within yourself.
Debra is a Craniosacral Therapist specialising in working with people who are suffering from stress and discomfort in their body and lives, going through times of transition or in need of support or general relaxation.
Her passion is for craniosacral therapy which she finds can touch the very core and essence of a person, and when engaged on this level, at a place of deep stillness, deep healing shifts can occur as the body finds it's way back to equilibrium. Cranial calms and supports the nervous system which in turn beneficially helps all other body systems.
She trained initially with Upledger Institute in 2005 going on to study at The College of Craniosacral Therapy and Advanced Craniosacral Skills and Visionary Craniosacral work hence all approaches to craniaosacral therapy maybe used depending on what the client presents.
Debra also works with reiki and Rejuvanessence and is a somatic movement practitioner.
Having worked in London for many years Debra now lives in Yorkshire and visits the Life Centre once a month.

Helen Craven MA(RCA), DCH, DHP, ITEC is an experienced Hypnotherapist using advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy, she is also a Reiki Master and teacher and is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
Helen started her working life in the arts, which is probably where she learned to look beneath the surface and try to understand, and bring out, the beauty in all that is around us. Life shows us many things â€“ both good and troubling, but how we perceive things and how we respond to events, is always our choice. We all have the power and potential to enhance our lives.
Helen moved from the arts to running a complementary health clinic (initially as a favour to a friend and then because it was wonderfully rewarding and fascinating) and has been working in the field of complementary therapies for the last 20 years. In 1997 she created the Craven Clinic in London W6, a multi-disciplinary complementary health centre that brought together over 30 different therapies. Having graduated top of her group from the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis, London, and having worked with great success with a wide variety of clients, dealing with everything from stress management and smoking cessation to pain control and palliative care for the terminally ill, she decided to close the clinic in 2003 and concentrate exclusively on working with individual clients and small groups.
Helen continues to study and train with the best teachers, keeping up to date with new techniques, so she can work with clients for maximum good effect. She works with, not on, her clients, so they learn techniques for themselves and gain a life-long empowerment that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Helen Mead mBRCP is a passionate advocate of living one’s best life and enabling people to achieve just that. With 20 years clinical experience, she is a Professional Complementary Medicine Practitioner who takes a naturopathic approach to improving her clients’ lives.
Delivering therapeutic methods such as Reflexology and Reiki, to empower her clients to make the changes they desire and improve their health and wellbeing. This is often combined with guided body centred mindfulness, nutrition and lifestyle advice; and other tools to further empower and aid clients on their journey.
Helen stepped on this path herself during a health crisis nearly 30 years ago. The most important thing she learnt was the power of what you decide to do for yourself: she commits to fully supporting you in this endeavour.
Today, Helen believes more than ever in the power of natural medicine and hands-on energetic treatment to restore one’s health and happiness. She delivers many different modalities: Meditation, Reflexology (feet and face), Indian head massage, Nutrition, Reiki, Thia and Tui-na massage and Iridology, all within this naturopathic base.
One of Helen’s big loves is her work in pregnancy (pre-conception and pre and post natal), and with clients affected by stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and addiction. For over a decade she worked in the substance misuse field and with families affected by both addiction and mental health issues.

He tends to base his practice around clients’ individual requirements; working with a variety of disciplines helps.

Outlets are important to him and they aid further development of his bodywork experience. These may be of a physical nature or the appreciation of the arts.
