About me

I currently work from my therapy room in Brixton, at The Massage Lab in Islington, Serenity Massage in South Kensington and offer on site corporate massage to companies wishing to treat their staff in the central London area.

I have a particular interest in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as I’ve recently recovered from the condition.My experience includes treating work and sports related injuries such as Ankle sprains, Shin Splints, Plantar Fasciatis, Tendonitis, Tight hamstrings and calves, lower back pain and workplace related problems including Wrist Strain, Tight Neck and shoulder muscles. I can also provide effective relief from nerve impingement (trapped nerves), Sciatica and Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).

I am particularly interested in treating Postural Related Pain through direct intervention and assessment to identify the cause and avoid re occurrence.

I also offer Pregnancy Massage, this is available for mums to be after the first trimester.

I became a Soft Tissue Therapist after experiencing the benefits myself. I ran my first marathon (London) in my early forties, building up to this with 5 years of street running. I got hooked and regularly compete in marathons, half marathons and 10k events both here and abroad. Along the way I’ve suffered the usual injuries including Achilles strain, sprains, shin splints and other problems. Soft Tissue Therapy worked for me in not only aiding the healing process, but also ensuring that I remain injury free whilst training for an event.

Further information

The techniques used to adapt to running in minimalist footwear.When I’m not treating people or running I can often be found training with British Military Fitness on Clapham Common and I’m easy to spot; I’m the one wearing the five fingered shoes.
