I am passionate about holistic massage and the effects it can have on our overall wellbeing. I understand how damaging the effects of stress can be and am increasingly aware how powerful massage can be in aiding relaxation, healing and grounding.
Having been an early years teacher for some years, I decided to pursue my passion for massage and attended the highly regarded Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. There I gained a Level 4 in Holistic Massage and Bodywork and became a fully insured, MTI practitioner.
I learnt many skills over the course of the year including traditional Swedish techniques, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, trigger point therapy, subtle energy work, stretching and mobilisations. I continue to learn and engage in CPD by attending advanced workshops, skill swaps with other practitioners and regular supervision groups.
I have recently qualified as a Hands Free Practitioner which has hugely influenced how I work and use my body. Alongside flowing strokes, I use my forearm and elbow to apply firmer, more effective pressure and save straining my hands. It can feel wonderful to receive.
I love what I do and it's a privilege to be able to help people connect to their bodies. I look forward to meeting new clients.
