In my late teens, I was torn between a career in Science and a career in the Arts. The Arts won and led me to obtain a Fine Art degree, specialising in time-based media and performance. I am truly thrilled my life worked out the way it did because when I re-trained a decade and a half later I was able to take with me all of my previous life experience.
My initial career in photographic post-production eventually gave me chronic neck pain, chronic stress and made me yearn for movement. I discovered Yoga, trained as a Circus Aerialist then quit my desk job to perform. While strength training to high levels I became obsessed with anatomy and best practice to avoid injury. After training in Remedial Massage Therapy I realised I had found my calling in helping others avoid injury, treat acute and chronic pain and the effects of stress on the body. Now pain-free, an avid Yogi and still in love with strength training, I believe all pain can be relieved if not eradicated if you can find the cause, which is why I work holistically to do just that.
I have studied in London, Oxford, Los Angeles and Bali graduating with a distinction in Level 5 Sports Massage Therapy, the highest qualification available in Remedial massage. I hold additional diplomas in Holistic Massage, Myofascial Release, Pilates and I am a certified Oncology Massage Therapist, Trigger Point Therapist and Reiki Master. As a registered therapist, I am required to complete at least 30 hours of continuous professional development training each year and conduct my own research. Last year I completed over 80 because I love what I do.
I combine a wide range of techniques depending on your needs. Whether you work sitting at a desk, carry children, stand up all day, or are in training for a marathon, our busy lifestyles can lead to overload and result in pain and injury. It's my passion to help you restore balance and to teach you how to prevent recurrences by providing exercises, self-care and lifestyle advice.
