|Marion Nixon's profile page|
Marion Nixon founded and teaches in the Namikoshi School of Shiatsu, and runs an holistic health practice called Health Works which includes a corporate stress management programme.|
Marion was born and grew up in Port Elizabeth. She moved to Cape Town in the 1980's but has not forgotten her 'Oos- Kaapie' roots, and visits PE regularly. She originally trained as a librarian, but really wanted to help people 'put their lives back on track'. Her interest in people and their well being led her to study theology and religious studies, and then into the hands-on world of holistic health, where she continues to add to her range of knowledge and skills. For personal relaxation Marion loves reading, sings in a choir, and likes to walk on the mountain. In summer she enjoys swimming and walking on the beach.
Marion feels she has a vocation to work with people in a way that makes a difference to their lives, so when in 1998 the opportunity to change careers came, she used her hobby and personal lifestyle to turn her vocation into a career focused on helping people improve their physical and mental health. Her training in natural health started in 1996, and is on-going – as she says, there’s always more to learn. She has studied under both South African and visiting international trainers.
In addition to running her own practice, Marion freelanced as a shiatsu therapist at the High Rustenburg Hydro in Stellenbosch for many years. She now teaches shiatsu in her Namikoshi School of Shiatsu. Her private practice is focused on personal health management, including stress and trauma relaease, and detoxing through lymph drainage massage. The techniques she uses are aromatherapy oils, cranio-sacral therapy, emotional freedom technique, and shiatsu.
Marion also runs a stress management and health awareness service for companies. After the many years she spent in the corporate world she well understands the stress people experience, both physically from sitting and working at computers all day, and mentally and emotionally from the pressures of the corporate workplace and leaving their children in the care of others during work hours. Marion decided to take natural health awareness into the workplace to give those who do not have easy access to natural health practitioners, the opportunity to experience the benefits of natural health. She believes that encouraging and facilitating employees to look after their health is part of maintaining a healthy business.
Marion’s passion is empowering people by helping them take responsibility for their health and managing their stress levels. Too many people struggle through life thinking there are no options to frustration, stress, and physical aches and pains, when there are lifestyle choices and natural health practices that can improve the quality of their life. Health Works!
