About Zing Wellness
Welcome to Zing Wellness!
Zing Wellness was born out of the desire to place health and wellbeing at the heart of our lifestyle. This work is a vocation and we are excited to share our experience, enthusiasm and compassion with you. We believe that you can put your health and wellbeing at the centre of your life too. We genuinely care about working with you.
Based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, Zing Wellness is a nurturing and holistic wellness team: a Pilates Teacher (Angela) and Massage Therapists (Nikki & Tania) and we’re here to share our gifts and expertise with you.
By working with you, and responding to your individual needs, we promise to rejuvenate and repair your body, relax your mind and enhance your life.
Our passion for Women’s Health inspires us to support women in their preparation for conception, in their developing pregnancy, to have a positive birth experience and a smooth postnatal recovery. In fact, we support women well into motherhood, fostering a sense of community among them. We know from experience that when women’s physical and emotional needs are met, families flourish.
Together with our trusted network of related professionals, we pride ourselves on empowering women. We know that Pilates and massage are important pieces of a much larger jigsaw and we’re here to help, every step of the way.
Combining the powerful benefits of movement, massage and important lifestyle changes, our expertise allows us to work with mums to rehabilitate unexplained back pain, diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary incontinence, urge incontinence, prolapse symptoms, pelvic girdle pain, sciatica, sacro-iliac joint pain and carpal tunnel. In fact, we help to restore and repair all common conditions affecting mums at this pivotal time in their lives.
That said, we welcome everyone at Zing Wellness! Our classes and treatments are as varied as our clients. We’re proud to offer a range of treatments that complement our clients’ own efforts to stay well. By making everyday incremental changes, encouraging regular movement and introducing massage, we’re able to enhance posture and alignment, and alleviate postural aches, pains and soft tissue tension. Breathing habits will improve, muscle weakness will be addressed and the body will be strengthened.
At Zing Wellness, we believe that the best thing we can do is to support you to connect with your body, to understand what your body is saying to you and to be more self-aware in general. In assessing your whole lifestyle, we take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. We work with all of our clients individually to embed this good practice into everyday life. To maintain good health, ease tension and sustain positive habits, preventative self-care is key.
Angela’s Story: Founding Zing Wellness
My Pilates learning began long before my teacher training.
I started my own personal self-discovery through movement in every of Pilates class I attended. I went to classes before work, in my lunch hour and after work; in fact I practised far more than I do now! Pilates gave me an insight into the human body and the way it responds positively to movement. Daily movement really does heal.
Pilates and the knowledge of my body it gave me inadvertently helped me through the many medical appointments and multiple surgeries I underwent for a congenital hip condition.
When I initially signed up to train as a Pilates teacher it was simply to further my own practice. It never occurred to me that I could be a Pilates teacher myself; I was too engrossed in my corporate job, which was all consuming. But I was looking for change; I just didn’t quite know it yet.
My 18-month comprehensive Pilates training has provided me with a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology, health and fitness, and Pilates exercises (including the original repertoire of Joseph Pilates and more modern-day pre-Pilates). It has also provided me with extensive knowledge of working with older, rehabilitating adults and pre- and postnatal women. I work successfully with clients enduring conditions such as unexplained back pain, arthritis, spinal disc injury, scoliosis, hypermobility, neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s and mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.
I think my professional experience in IT & business transformation fused with my passion for Pilates has been hugely complementary. Clients come to me looking to change habits, so understanding the psychology and process of change is hugely helpful. I’d go so far to say that my previous career has been instrumental in my success in the wellness world.
And so, Zing Wellness was born. Running a successful wellbeing business is an ongoing passion project. My love for my work consistently drives me to learn more, through implementing client feedback, regular training, further reading, and collaborating with other health professionals.
I look forward to working with you!
