London, United Kingdom, July 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- GéNIA has been working closely with Neal's Yard practitioner, Angela Allen, for over a year, and couldn’t help but notice how her various techniques – whether pure massage, Reiki, crystal healing or hotstones – helped to heal and eliminate stress, anxieties and blockages in the bodies of her students. After sending a number of students and friends to Angela it became apparent that not only can these therapies help people enhance their well- being, but they also benefit the whole learning process (in this case piano), through work on posture and various physiological elements. Students were happier, observed the musical material better and were far more confident at performing in public.
Together, GéNIA and Angela aim to work on the well-being of the student in tandem with the educational process, to ensure that student is ready and happy to learn to the maximum of their capacity and have a really fulfilling and happy experience in their education.
Before coming to health therapy, Angela Allen worked in the music industry, so is very well paced to understand the needs musicians and music students. Angela's practice aims to create a clear space for patients to recharge, rebalance and re-energize. Her treatments involve a range of techniques and always focus on patients’ individual concerns and problem areas. Angela is Neal’s Yard Practitioner and is fully qualified in the following areas:

How it Works
During the initial 60-minute piano lesson with GéNIA you will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have about your playing. For example, the student’s playing could be inhibited because their shoulders are too tight, or perhaps they find it difficult to perform in public due to constant anxiety. In consultation with GéNIA, Angela will then put together a bespoke therapy session based on the student’s specific needs, and further sessions may be recommended. All the sessions are fully confidential.
