I discovered the world of bodywork through a knee injury which developed into a hip problem. I found conventional methods of therapy only worked in the short term. I began to get to know my body through various sports, dancing and yoga. The yoga helped me to understand the injury and heal it. Years later, with an insatiable yoga appetite and curiosity for how my body worked, I trained as a Sivananda yoga teacher and since then have learnt how to work with the body.
The various bodywork techniques I use have been acquired over the years through professional training and continued professional development (CPD). Some of them include Holistic Massage, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Kahuna Hawaiian, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Thai yoga, Neuroskeletal Re-alignment therapy, Core Fascial Release and Deep Abdominal Colon Massage. I recently returned from New Zealand where i explored Maori Bodywork and healing.
During my treatments, I draw from the relevant sources to produce a therapy tailored to suit the client. I happily place myself in the role as and enjoy an ongoing learning process.
My experiences in study, life and with clients continually encourage me to look at ailments not just physically but spiritually and mentally, whether it be massage, body alignment, energy healing, yoga or a mindful walk in the park…an individual can journey back to their innate selves and promote healing.
I enjoy giving deep meditative massages as much as working with injuries, and strongly believe in every body’s ability to change and improve, thus impacting and changing lives for the better. Having a treatment is a space for the client to simply be.
