About Us – Heidi Hadley CCSE ESMT
Heidi Hadley (www.HeidiHadley.com) originally trained in mainstream medicine as a Medical Technical Officer in Neurophysiology at the University Hospital (formerly The Queen Elizabeth) Birmingham, UK. It was whilst working there that a number of her patients suffering with side effects to their anti-epileptic drugs informed her that they received regular complementary/natural therapy treatments to alleviate the side effects of their pharmaceutical drugs.
After thorough research Heidi decided to study and train in Natural Therapies. Heidi has also completed a Phytotherapy course with Bioforce UK, studying the use of herbs with health. Heidi has a holistic approach to her treatments. Rather than deal with the symptoms of a problem, she aims to deal with the root cause. Treating the whole person is Heidi’s objective.
Heidi started her career in natural therapies in 2001 and has acquired many different techniques over the years to bring greater choice to her clients. She ran clinics in England treating people with serious disabilities and many of these clients suffered with Multiple Sclerosis.
As a qualified teacher in adult education, Heidi has created many courses and transferred them into the online arena. Qualifying as a baby and infant Massage educator in 2008 in the UK, Heidi has taught many parents and carers over the years how to practice effective massage techniques on their beautiful babies. She has taken the course content she teaches in Adelaide, South Australia and designed it for everyone to access, wherever you live in the world by creating the online program, Baby Massage Adelaide & Beyond. The baby and infant massage techniques are designed for babies over the age of 6 weeks and up to the age of 5 years, although many of the techniques can be adapted to older family members.
Heidi is the founder of Total Somatics®, an online program designed to reduce pain, improve posture, increase mobility, develop mindfulness and allow you to resume or continue with the activities you love to do. She is a Certified Clinical Somatic Educator and Somatic Movement Teacher in the work of Thomas Hanna. Heidi is also a qualified Pilates instructor. This gives her clients greater awareness of their bodies, movement patterns and educating them with a skill set so they can perform specific exercises for 10-20 minutes each day in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
