10 years ago, Ahmed turned to yoga, energy work, somatic therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine and shamanic healing in an effort to heal persistent issues with his own body. A Health & Wellbeing writer, he eventually retrained as a bodyworker.
He is deeply grateful to his mentors and to those who have selflessly helped him on his journey: David Manning, Anna Hunt, Shomit Mitter, John Tindall, Stewart Gilchrist, Ena Vie, Howard Lipp & Louka Leppard.
“It has been said that the longest journey a person can make is from the head to the heart. For me, bodywork has been an integral part of that journey. It is instrumental in silencing the brain so that we can hear the wisdom of our hearts.”
