Ian Ferris, Complementary Health Practitioner, Croydon

Ian gave up his role of 15 years, working in local government for Croydon Council, in order to start the Selsdon Wellbeing Centre.

Ian is a Graduate member of the UK Shiatsu Society having completed a three year shiatsu Diploma course with the British School of Shiatsu-Do London in 2003.

He has been practising martial arts since the 1970's, attaining black belts in both Aikido & Judo and a brown belt in Tai Hen Jiu Jitsu. He taught Judo for 12 years at the Biggin hill Judo Club until December 2007 when he retired. Ian also volunteers his time on a Monday to help cancer patients through the Complementary Cancer Care Trust in Bexley.

He is a member of both the Croydon and London Chambers of Commerce & Industry and is also a member of the Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council and a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine.

He has been very fortunate to treat people like Danny John Jules "Cat" of the TV Red Dwarf Series, now to be seen in the film "Sucker Punch", Film Star Gordon Alexander (Sucker Punch, Rome Dog Soldiers, and The Purifiers) and Sue Atkins reknowned Parenting Coach and Author of the famous book "Raising Happy Children for Dummies", she is also an NLP Master Trainer working with Paul McKenna.

"I have been taught to use Shiatsu within the martial arts via Aikido since the 1980's. After attending more and more courses on it I became convinced that this is what I wanted to do for a living. The reason why I do it more than anything else is because I love helping people, seeing them become happier from when they walked through the door.

In Japan Shiatsu is a part of the every day medical service and is used by many people. It is natural so it works with the body, as pills do not necessarily work with the underlying cause. Its preventative so it keeps all the body balanced. I love doing Shiatsu so to me I am not working; I am a very lucky person to have what I enjoy doing as my profession"
