With a deep interest in mind body connection after decades exploring physical movement and wellbeing through dance in a semi-professional capacity, practicing yoga since 2001, as well as working with pilates and physio exercises, I came to focus on massage.
I am a mum, and my experience has shown me that my physical health and emotional wellbeing has a profound affect on the happiness of myself and my family, our family dynamics, and the quality of our relationships.
I am a qualified holistic Level 5 Remedial and Sports Massage therapist . The practice is not about pain but rather about having an acute understanding of the body, its functions, muscles and soft tissue, in order to work delicately and precisely to achieve the most beneficial outcome. Physical outcomes include reduced muscle adhesions, improved circulation, greater range of movement. Holistic outcomes include relaxation, greater connection between mind and body, improved mood. Additional somatic responses include reduced blood pressure, enhanced immune response, improved breathing patterns.
I completed my Level 5 Diploma in Remedial and Sports Massage at Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork (BCMB) in 2022.
I qualified with a level 4 Diploma in Holistic Massage at BCMB in 2019.
Both courses are one year, incorporating a variety of massage and bodywork techniques, the study of anatomy (bones and muscles), physiology (functions and systems of the body), and pathology (illness and its affects).
I have studied counselling skills, nutrition and energy healing.
I work with my clients to develop personalised effective treatment plans.
I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT, www.fht.org.uk ) following their strict codes of conduct and fulfilling Continuing Professional Development. I am fully insured. I have an up to date DBS check.
