About me

I am a fully qualified massage therapist who has trained and is registered with the Scottish Massage Therapists organisation. I offer Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage/Trigger Point Therapy, Sports and Remedial Massage, Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stones Massage and Seated Acupressure Massage all of which are great for relaxation and/or pain relief. Many clients come to me to de-stress and others for more targeted pain relief such as relief from a sore back/neck and shoulders etc.

I am also a member of Athlete's angels providing massage at outdoor sporting events throughout Scotland. I have two clinics at present; One in Corstorphine and one at KnotStressed Therapies in the City Centre. I also provide a mobile massage service within the Edinburgh area. Please look to my website for more details.
