After completing a PhD in Psychology and working as a researcher for many years, I decided to leave the lab behind and retrain as a massage therapist. I trained at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) and qualified as a clinical sport and remedial massage therapist at the beginning of 2014. I have since completed a number of professional development courses, including pregnancy/post-natal massage and myofascial release.
I am fascinated by the musculoskeletal system and driven by the desire to help people overcome pain and discomfort through the use of soft tissue therapy. My treatments are bespoke and include assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation advice, where needed. I have treated a diverse range of individuals, including aerialists; climbers; runners; pregnant and post-natal mums; and office workers.
I am a full member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM) and have professional indemnity insurance and first aid training.
