Over the years, I have competed on a national and regional level in Martial Arts and also have a real passion for rock/snow climbing. The task of trying to heal various injuries sustained during competitions and training led me to develop a real interest in massage and bodywork. I have since transformed this initial interest into a successful career that I am incredibly passionate about.
I studied at the British School of Shiatsu-Do in London for 3 years, and soon after, I completed a year long course in Anatomy Physiology and Therapeutic Massage. With my background in Martial Arts, I became fascinated by the oriental approach and continued to attend various courses in Thai Yoga Massage, Chinese Tui Na and Qi Gong, for movement, massage and meditation.
Keen to learn more, I enrolled in another 270 hour course over 2 years in Advance Myo-Fascia techniques with Kinesis Uk. This is based on the theory of Tom Myers Anatomy Trains, one of the leading schools in Structural Integration. It has a worldwide reputation for its excellent training.
