A (little) bit about me
I have always had an interest in health issues having put together health features and news articles for many years while working as a journalist at The Sentinel newspaper in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
I began my journey into complementary therapy in 2008 with a focus on injury treatment having picked up my fair share of injuries and ‘niggles’ due to my love of running. I wanted to understand what was happening within my own body, what I could do to avoid more problems, and understand how to get better faster.
So began my health education. I completed an Open University course in Human Biology in 2006, a Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) Level 3 Qualification in Sports Massage Therapy, a VTCT Level 3 Qualification in Reflexology, and further courses in Indian Head Massage, the revolutionary Rossiter workout, acupuncture, and KORE therapy… and I’m happy to admit I’m learning more all the time!
Typically, people come to me because they want to put down the painkillers and treat the cause of their problem, rather than the symptoms, and are ready to take responsibility for their own health.
I bring my passion for massage therapies to achieve the best possible outcomes for my clients in emotional and physical pain, and empower them to take control of their own healing with self-care suggestions and support.
