About me

From my own personal experience I know that deep tissue massage really works, having had a serious back injury myself many years ago.

It can really help by alleviating muscle pain, whether it’s been caused by an injury, bad posture or stresses of daily life.

I have been involved in Sport and Recreation for over 25 years in various capacities.

Starting as a gym instructor/personal trainer in both public and private gyms, I went on to manage several of Bristol’s Sports Centres and Swimming pools.

A career change later in life meant a move to London, where I found myself office bound in a senior management position specialising in IT within the Banking sector.

I moved back to Bristol in 2007 having had enough of the rat race and retrained to be a sports massage therapist.

Having been in a position of being a sportsman as well as a senior manager, in very different working environments, I very much understand that the body not only has to deal with the punishment and stress from physical activity, but also that of daily life.
