This is Kelebek Holistic Therapies.

Holistic therapies for men and women.

My name is Kezia Kecibas and I have always held a belief that holistic therapy should not just be about relaxation but about enlightenment and gaining a sense of purpose.

I grew up in Cambridge and gained A-levels in English, Theatre as well as Psychology. I graduated from De Montfort University in 2002 with a 2.1 Honours degree in Theatre. During my three years at university I looked at the human bodies natural rhythms and the many guises people use to portray and disguise both emotions and feelings and after my degree I went on to fulfil roles in positions where I would be able to enhance people’s lives as well as allowing my creative and sensual sides to come to the forefront. I worked in events and festivals with people of all ages and backgrounds. My interest in the diverse and varied culture of Leicester enticed me into a course on multi-culturalism and later on a counselling course. Continuing down the route of studying and learning about communication with others I have also gained British Sign Language qualifications levels 1 and 2. 

In 2005 I was lucky enough to have a little boy. My labour was very long and intense as he was two months premature. Because of this it was decided that drugs maybe of harm to the baby so I used relaxation and breathing techniques to deliver my son. This reaffirmed my belief in natural pain relief and alternative treatments to drug therapy. 

After I had my son I went on to do a lot of voluntary work including developing and facilitating a parenting programme which allowed carers to share their opinions and thoughts. After this I went on to facilitate several parenting courses with a variety of parents from different cultures and backgrounds.

Through these experiences I gained an interest in how touch/contact could not only benefit people’s health but also their mental well-being. In 2007 I trained as a Holistic Therapist at Leicester College, qualifying in Swedish body massage, reflexology and aromatherapy. I went on to train in Hopi ear candles, hot stone therapy, pregnancy Massage and was attuned in Reiki. Alongside my holistic work I also received a certificate in health and fitness; covering exercise and health, nutrition and weight management and stress management.

I feel that holistic therapy should be open to everybody and anything that can make it more accessible can only be a good thing. I like to draw on my Mediterranean roots when providing treatments. My brother and I were taught to walk across my Father’s back and give massage from a very young age (we were then bribed to do so when we were slightly older!). I hope that this has added to what I like to believe is a natural healing talent. I have been working as a parenting group facilitator and holistic therapist for just over 2 years and each day I learn new things from the wonderful people I meet. Through my life experiences and listening to many knowledgeable “teachers” I hope I can aid people to come to a positive balance both physically and mentally. I feel that the holistic therapies are not only lovely treats for individual sessions but for me they are a way of living and enhancing my life on a permanent basis.
