I am a massage therapist and tutor with a passion for helping others to feel more at ease in their body.
I've been a practising therapist since 2011 and in that time, I've worked at the Wellspring Healthy Living Centre in Barton Hill, the Relaxation Centre in Clifton, The Practice Rooms in Westbury-on-Trym, at several festivals and events, as well as seeing clients in private practice. I'm now based at the Unlimited Company on Shirehampton Road on a Thursday.
My first therapeutic training was in Usui Reiki Level 3 with Gayatri Angel Light Healing in London in 2006. Reiki gave me a way to open to universal energy and know myself as part of a greater whole. It was deeply healing on many levels.
I took the holistic massage diploma with the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in 2010, one of the most respected massage training courses in the UK. My experience of it was that I didn't just get taught a bunch of skills, although it included that. I was offered the chance to discover who I am in massage, so it becomes like a meditation, a dance, a delight for both giver and receiver. It is a joy for me to share this journey with others in Bristol in holistic massage sessions and massage tuition.
I love doing deep tissue massage and helping people with Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome and those experience chronic stress and anxiety. I am constantly amazed by the power of using gentle yet powerful techniques such as Myofascial Release, which work on underlying tensions to provide a deep sense of letting go, creating ease and movement in the body.
Outside of offering sessions and workshops, I love to create music. I write and play songs on the piano and guitar and love to sing.
I enjoy walks in nature, hanging out with friends, going to the cinema, making delicious food and enjoying the journey of being alive.
