Sarah Kirby

After working in the hotel & catering industry for nearly 10 years, I decided to retrain as a massage therapist in 2002. Having had a personal interest in holistic therapies, healthy living and falling in love with massage after receiving my first one, it seemed like a natural progression. Over the years I have trained in many different disciplines including advanced clinical massage, deep tissue massage, LaStone therapy (hot & cold stone massage), nutrition and naturopathy.

I specialise in deep tissue massage and advanced clinical massage and like to use various techniques including trigger point therapy, myofascial release and soft tissue release. I have found that using these techniques in combination with hot stones can bring about even deeper levels of relaxation both emotionally and physically.

During our consultation I like to take into account all areas of your life including stress, work, fitness, diet, general well being; this helps me get a full picture of you. I like to work from a holistic perspective and will give a series of treatments and advice based on what you tell me.   

I like to bring all of my skills and knowledge together to help you achieve optimal health and wellbeing, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I believe we have a personal responsibility to play an active role in finding answers to our own health issues and I will help guide you in the right direction as much as possible.

Before and After

I have practised yoga on and off for the last 15 years, I love cycling and walking over the South Downs and this year I competed for the first time in a natural bikini fitness competition (UFE European Championships).

With the help of my personal trainer I lost 2 stone through lifting weights and a sensible food plan. I competed in and was placed 1st in masters over 35 figure category and 3rd in masters over 35 women’s fitness. I truly believe that anything is possible if we have the right mindset and support.

I am passionate about being as fit and healthy as possible so that I can age in health. If I can inspire just one person to feel the same about the amazing machine they have, called their body, then I’m happy.
