Listening, responding, nourishing, nurturing…
My interest in the crucial connection between our physical, emotional and spiritual states, as well as a love of receiving holistic massage, drew me to the Massage Training Institute (MTI) and to qualify with an MTI Professional Pracititioner Diploma Level 4 in Holistic Massage, with Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology.
This unlocked a fascination in the power of holistic healing, so I’ve continued my learning with additional accredited qualifications:
- MTI Level 3 Indian Head Massage with Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology
- BCMB Course and Assessment in Massage for Women’s Health
- MTI Certificate in Hot Stones for Massage Therapists
- MTI Certificate in Massage in Pregnancy
- Reiki Seichem Levels 1, 2 and 3 Mastership
- Lomi Lomi Pracititioner Diploma
I’m an absolute advocate for holistic methodologies. As they use an intuitive approach they avoid the massage routines and standard ‘set pieces’ so often found elsewhere. My lovely clients tell me you can really tell the difference!
I combine my holistic therapy practice with my other professional life working in the charitable sector. Both bring me into contact with some exceptional and inspirational people, and both are concerned with health and wellbeing.
Outside my work I find joy in playing the piano, and feeding my love of opera, 1980s, and world music. I try to practice what I preach, setting time aside to enjoy the bliss of holistic therapies myself, and connecting with and listening to nature. I also practise yoga and pilates, and love dancing like a Muppet to the exhilarating salsa and samba rhythms of Zumba!
