I have always very much enjoyed sport. Throughout my years at school I played on the hockey, netball & volleyball teams, represented Guilford City in swimming and played Badminton for the Wales Junior Team. In adult life I have continued to swim and run, taking part in many Parkrun 5k events which resulted in receiving the milestone “50 Parkrun” T-shirt in 2015.
Life after school was spent at college studying Art & Design resulting in a BA Honours in Furniture Design which led to working in the Industry for over four years and then my own curtain making company in Surrey.
With sport at the heart of a growing family, I decided to study Sports & Remedial Massage at the highly regarded North London School of Sports Massage (NLSSM) in 2016 and achieved a Level 5 Btec Diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy in May 2017. Throughout my time at NLSSM, I developed an in-depth knowledge of anatomy & techniques which enabled me to combine postural analysis & home care exercises for clients, which provide specific treatment to a person’s individual needs.
I have been fortunate to be involved in a number of sporting events during 2016 such as the Rough Runner in Clapham, where I worked with the British Heart Foundation as a pre-event and after event massage therapist whilst raising money for the foundation. This was a fantastic experience and served to further my passion for muscle therapy.
Most recently I have been working at the Telegraph Newspaper for three months as a massage therapist at their Head Office in London working with their staff and alongside the in house physiotherapist.
I regularly participate in continuing professional development courses to further my knowledge and skills to give my clients the best treatment. New services now offered alongside sports and deep tissue massage, are sport and kinesiology taping, dry needling and spinal manipulation. With scar treatment/ massage to study and treat soon. Scar Work is a technique that works to reconfigure the soft tissues, reduce adhesion’s left by scarring and improve the appearance of scars and range of motion of the affected area.
