Originally from rural Wales, I began training in Massage and Herbal Medicine in 2006, after initially studying and working in the field of Zoological Sciences. Practising holistically, I work with clients to resolve the root causes of their complaints, and treat the symptoms. I tailor each treatment to the specific needs of each client, and adapt as those needs change over time. Individual diet and lifestyle advice is given where appropriate, to help recovery at the deepest possible level.
After completing ITEC diplomas in Aromatherapy Massage and Holistic Massage at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine, I built on my essential skills with Deep Tissue and Remedial Massage techniques, and rigorous courses in Pregnancy Massage, Abdominal Massage, Thai Massage, and most recently Fertility Massage.
Through my training in Herbal Medicine I learned a lot about women’s health so am knowledgeable about various menstrual issues, PMS, fertility, menopausal symptoms, as well as stress and anxiety.
I have taught professional training courses for Inspire Massage Workshops, as well as informational massage classes for the general public and private massage workshops for couples. I regularly run Herbal Workshops for Community Groups and Organisations.
