It was through having a massage and experiencing how amazing, uplifted and free from tension it made me feel that made me decide I wanted to be a massage therapist. I qualified from the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in 1998.
The massage therapy I provide ranges from Holistic massage, deep tissue massage and general pregnancy massage right through to Reiki healing.
My style is generally firm, slow and focused. I work by encouraging relaxation and healing in the soft tissue, applying trigger point release, holds and general flowing, connecting and rejuvenating massage strokes.
I often combine different techniques of massage and draw upon my experience as a therapist, my intuition as a person and ability to listen, to be in tune with what is needed in that moment, in creating a bespoke treatment for you.
I love my work and the instant positive response clients give, that deeper breath, or slight shift and change in the muscle tissue, smile on their relaxed faces when they leave the treatment room. That inspires me to promote healing and positive well - being through massage.
Away from massage, I enjoy staying active and mobile through yoga, surfing, bouldering and walking the dog.
I continue my personal development as a therapist by taking part in courses and further studies. I am a member of FHT (the Federation for Holistic Therapists) and hold an up to date practitioner insurance through Balens Ltd.
