My background prior to my massage career was as a Registered General Nurse, where I worked both on the wards and in General Practice.
I decided on a career change that led me into the wonderful world of massage – Canine Massage initially, followed by my human Sports and Remedial Massage qualification in 2014.
I have always been active and have been a keen runner since my late 30’s. I also have a great love of animals, particularly dogs and horses and enjoy both walking and riding on the Malvern Hills.
I keep myself up to date with training and have achieved my Level 4 Sports Massage qualification as well as courses in Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point therapy, Indian Head Massage and Seated Massage.
My approach to massage is that it is accessible to all – you don’t have to be sporty, you can be any age, shape, weight, just be whoever you are.
I do treat athletes, but I also treat musicians, builders, gardeners and retired people – whatever activity that requires you to either work or play in an awkward space, lift heavy weights or do repetitive actions.
And just treating yourself is also most definitely a good reason for having a massage.
I belong to the Sports Therapy Association and the Federation of Holistic Therapies and am fully insured with Balens.
