My background is in the casino industry where I worked as a Croupier for 15 years before becoming a Massage Therapist. Throughout my years working as a Croupier I always felt as if something was missing, that I would love to do something that would bring health and happiness to others. I embarked on a journey with Reiki energy in 2010 that further fuelled my desire to work within the holistic health field. In 2013 I trained in massage and gained ITEC Level 3 Diplomas in Holistic Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage before moving on to do further training in Deep Tissue Massage, Natural Face Lift Massage, seated Acupressure and Pregnancy Massage.
In 2016, I suffered a traumatic brain injury which led to an incredibly challenging period in my life. Recovering from the injury and looking after my son who was one at the time, combined with having to give up the financial security of my casino employment led to an anxiety breakdown. It was coming through this experience that inspired me and gave me the courage to work with others, helping them to nurture their full potential physically, mentally and spiritually.
I take a completely holistic approach to massage therapy and work with the concept that muscles hold not only physical tension but sometimes deep rooted emotional trauma. Massage and the power of touch not only benefits the physical body but is a powerful tool for releasing stress and anxiety. By using a holistic approach, I view each client as an individual and tailor every treatment to the individual needs of my clients on that particular day.
I am fully insured and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, the largest and leading professional association for therapists in the UK and Ireland.
