With the advent of COVID-19, I have made changes to my working practices and schedule to ensure you are looked after.

Why Massage?

Massage therapy is a healing practice that dates back thousands of years. Evidence of massage has been found in many ancient civilisations with the first written records found in China, India and Egypt. Ancient cultures from around the globe found that massage could heal injuries, relieve pain, and prevent and cure illnesses, most likely due to its ability to reduce stress and produce deep relaxation. Since that time massage therapy continues to evolve with its efficacy becoming widely appreciated.

Here are just a few of its many benefits:
  • Reduction in pain
  • Improved recovery from injuries
  • Improved function and performance
  • Improved circulation
  • Stress reduction
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Relaxation

Why Yoga?

Yoga means union. The true purpose of Yoga is to unite or connect us to our true self.

We live in an age where we are more connected to technology than to our bodies and our emotions. With this disconnect comes physical pain and dysfunction and a loss of intuition relating to our physical and mental health and well-being. Yoga has the power to reconnect us, initially to our bodies and our breath, and to much more if we choose to immerse more deeply in the practice.

Yoga has the power to be completely transformative and for me, that transformation really took off when I began my Ashtanga Yoga practice. Not only does Ashtanga Yoga offer a way of strengthening the body whilst equally stretching it, creating physical balance and integrity. It is designed to be a moving meditation with the breath given as much emphasis as the physical aspects of the practice. It is far more than a route to physical fitness.

Why choose me?

Having been practicing Massage for 20 years there is not much I have not seen in terms of Musculoskeletal Dysfunction. This gives me the capacity to either treat or to refer on to a network of great professionals who I have built in the area over the last 10 years.

I have come to understand that any approach to health has to be multi-dimensional. On this basis, as well as understanding the need for the involvement of other professionals where appropriate, I also draw on my own experience of injury and imbalance, treatment, rehabilitation and Yoga practice.

I passionately believe in the efficacy of both Massage and Yoga and can honestly say that both have changed my life for the better.
