Beth Sykes Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD Therapist.

BSc (Hons) Health Studies, PG Dip Ed, ITEC/MLD Dip

Beth is a fully qualified MLD massage therapist with a professional health education and research background.  Her interest in holistic therapy started over 30 years ago after suffering from persistent migraines, anxiety and panic attacks. She recalls her attacks beginning as young as eight years old, and they continued to plague her throughout her teens and early twenties. Beth remembers feeling helpless at times but found great comfort in reading, and this naturally extended to non-fictional literature related to overcoming illness and disease.  The acquired knowledge-empowered Beth to take responsibility for her well-being and incorporate positive strategies to help her get well.  This included eliminating processed foods and limiting exposure to environmental toxins. incorporating cleansing protocols and focussing on bodywork, such as yoga, massage and breath work.    

Beth moved to Japan shortly after university to teach and promote British culture. Beth has spent much of her working life in East Asia, and this has not only influenced her way of life but also inspired her to educate and encourage others to adopt health rituals and take a ‘root cause/whole body’ approach to healing.   Her time spent in Hong Kong, where her son was born, was when her work involved delivering in-house health programmes to help prevent stress-induced sickness. She has always focused on the importance of stress-relieving methods and working on the premise that stripping back and removing toxins to aid the body’s detoxification pathways is a vital first step in giving the body space to heal.   This has led Beth to study bodywork further and specialise in Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatments.
