I am a qualified Clinical and Sports Massage Therapist and Reflexologist and I run a massage business in Bedfordshire and surrounding areas offering various treatments. I offer treatments in my home studio as well as at The Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living and at Studios in Biggleswade.
My earliest inspiration was when I was coached in the art of Alexander Technique from my late teens. I went on to study Yoga and Pilates both of which allowed me to actively change the way I use my body. I was also fortunate enough to meet and receive treatments from some very gifted Masseurs and Body Therapists. These varied approaches to body mechanics had a deep effect on me and inspired me to learn about the world of Holistic Health.
When I began to relate my own studies in Alexander, Yoga and Pilates to other people, I realised that I had a strong instinct to help people overcome their physical difficulties, and so began my journey into the world of massage and body mechanics.
Once I had qualified as a masseur, I joined the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), Association of Reflexologists (AOR) and th Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which are Professional Governing Bodies. I was keen to have the support of these organisations not only because they oblige their members to continue training in order to keep up to date with current thinking and practices, but also to be part of a wide and growing network of like-minded people.
