I started my massage practise quite late in life, after a career as a textile designer.
I worked as a freelance designer, selling designs mainly for clothing and giftware through an agent. Later I headed up a design studio for a children’s wear company producing collections of garments at the beginning of each season.
I had a growing interest in complementary therapies and subsequently did a massage course which set me on a totally different path.
Using my knowledge of trigger points, I can work on tight, painful areas of muscle that can cause issues such as headaches or tingling feelings in the arms. I can reduce pain levels and can improve long-standing problems. This type of deep tissue massage is also ideal for someone who does lots of sport.
I work with massage to relax both your mind and body, and this can lead to an enhanced sense of well-being. For example, aromatherapy massage can be incredibly beneficial if you are suffering from depression and/or anxiety. This is because massage promotes the release of the body’s own endorphins – feel good hormones, which help relieve pain. This can lift your mood, calm nerves and promote positive feelings. I aim to create a healing, nurturing and uplifting environment where you can feel at ease while your body heals.
I can’t stress enough the importance of having regular massage every month or 6 weeks, long standing areas of tension can be tackled thoroughly in this way. If a problem has been effecting you for a long time, it can take a few sessions to get rid of, and then it is a matter of maintaining what you have gained. Regular massage helps you to tackle everyday issues from a better place and in a much calmer manner.
The thing I really like about being a therapist is helping people, it is wonderful when people feel they have really benefited from seeing me and want to book again!
