Who can benefit from my treatments?
Anyone can benefit from my therapies. I tend to work more with people who have specific problems (i.e. sciatica, tight muscles, postural problems etc.). I believe my style can induce a deep sense of relaxation so would also be suitable for anyone who suffers from stress and anxiety or just needs to relax and unwind. I adapt each treatment to my clients needs and use a variety of techniques.
What inspires me?
Helping people to relax and reconnect with their body is one of the reasons I became a therapist. I am fascinated by the way our bodies manifest our feelings and emotions, and how relaxing and releasing physical tension can effect us on a much deeper level. I also developed an interest in body dynamics and postural issues which has led me to study deep tissue massage and personal training. This has given me a deeper understanding of the human body and helped enormously with my practice.
How I like to relax
To relax I enjoy walking in nature, meditation, reading a good book and listening to music. I also love spending quality time with my family.
My other interests
Complementary therapies in general (homeopathy, natural remedies, Bach Flower Remedies etc.) Yoga, Pilates and meditation.
