Kelly Zilz BA(Hons), ITEC, MAOR
Hello! Welcome to my website. My name is Kelly and I am a complementary therapist based in West Sussex, where I have my own private therapy room.
I am passionate about complementary therapies and have seen first hand in the past how they can help alleviate stress and promote relaxation, amongst other benefits. Please go to my therapies page for a list of all therapies I currently offer and to find out a little bit more about what I offer and what the benefits are for each therapy.
As a conscientious and caring individual, I have found that helping people relax and destress through receiving complementary therapies is so rewarding. Furthermore, I get so much satisfaction from seeing clients relax and benefit from the therapies that I offer that it does not feel like a job to me, it is a passion.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexology. I am also fully insured for all the therapies I offer and am also enhanced DBS checked.
A little bit about me away from my therapy room…
I am originally from Pembrokeshire, West Wales but my home is now based in Barns Green, West Sussex, where I live with my husband and slightly eccentric but ever so loveable tuxedo rescue cat, Meely. I worked in a busy call centre environment for many years as a Resource Planning Analyst and in 2015 I started to train in complementary therapies, with the dream of becoming self employed and running my own therapy business, which is where I have found myself today!
I love spending time walking in the countryside and yoga and gym classes and I have recently started rebounding. I also love meditation and have benefited hugely from personal meditation practice and I also attend group mediation sessions. I also am a bit of a bookworm and last year I read over 100 books, including many non-fiction, health, reflexology, self-development and spiritual texts, which have all contributed towards my personal and professional development, which I see as a continuous journey. I also volunteer with the village Brownie Group, which is a lot of fun and very rewarding.
