From years of personally suffering from neck, shoulder and back pain and after investigating and exploring many different methods of pain relief I discovered massage therapy. Not only had I found the most successful pain relief but I had unearthed a new career path as it had inspired me to retrain as a massage therapist to help others.
I am driven by the desire to help you the client relieve your body of pain, but ultimately to understand your body. I can enable you to discover the causes of your pain and make the lifestyle changes needed to prevent recurrence.
Following 10 years studying anatomy and physiology and 9 years’ practical experience; the connection between pain and postural patterns, often unrecognised, has become a fundamental part of my treatments. Understanding your body and the effect of bad posture I am able to treat the whole body not just the symptoms.
I am passionate about what I do and find it so rewarding. I see so many people who have lost hope so to see their faces when they actually feel a difference, is magical. I feel blessed to be able to empower my clients to help themselves manage their pain, by becoming more aware of their body and improving their posture, which in turn will reduce pain and the stress levels this causes.
