I completed my basic massage course in 1995 at Peterborough Regional College and then went on to complete a sports massage course at Stamford College in Lincolnshire. After this I went on to complete the Football Association basic and intermediate treatment to injury courses and various independent courses including ultrasound, advanced sports therapy and bio-mechanics.
5 years ago I discovered Myofascial Release, a technique that works on the fascial system of the body. Learning these techniques has changed everything for me and made my treatments so much more effective that I am amazed by the changes that can be made.
I also spent a few years teaching Sports Massage at Peterborough Regional College from 1996 and I have mentored many students over the following years.
I ran my own sports massage and therapy clinic in Cambridgeshire for 15years and have now relocated to Weybridge in Surrey where I am continuing to build a strong client base.
I specialise in providing a surprisingly deep massage treatment for one so slight in frame.
My massage may be deep but it is also performed very slowly and gently in order for the patient to be able to relax into the treatment.
My speciality includes treatment of postural problems that cause back, neck and shoulder pain and in assessing problems arising from poor posture. With just a few treatments patients who have suffered long term pain in these areas find that their symptoms are greatly reduced or have disappeared altogether.
I am also very adept at treating muscle pain and tension in the arms, legs and chest and have regularly treated patients from the local athletics club to help them keep relaxed and pain free. I have regularly treated a national Karate champion and a commonwealth gymnastic champion.
Since being pregnant myself I became extremely interested in the affect that pregnancy can have on the body and in the ways that massage can help treat a huge variety of these problems.
These include low back pain, sciatica, pubis synthesis disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck & shoulder tension and many other stresses that pregnancy can put on the body.
If your struggling with your pregnancy then a massage with me is an excellent place to start help alleviate some of your problems. I've suffered many of them myself so I know exactly how you feel!
As a result of this interest in June 2008, I completed a course on Maternity Massage at the highly acclaimed Jing School of Massage in Brighton & have now also completed an Advanced Diploma in Maternity Massage with the Middlesex School of Complementary Therapy.
