About me

I have over 24 years experience as a qualified massage therapist (and 11 as an Alexander technique teacher) working with a diverse range of clients with a wide range of physical and emotional/mental health issues, inc HIV, Parkinson's disease, fibromyalgia and a wide range of musculoskeletal problems. I enjoy working with clients looking at use and body mechanics from an Alexander technique and somatic movement perspective, and equally so when the need is for still, quiet and nurturing treatment. I work very much with the awareness of the mind/body connection, and have an endless fascination into how we can learn to live more comfortably, happily and freely in our whole selves.

I offer holistic, therapeutic massage and natural, chemical free facial treatments.

My massage treatments have evolved from my experiences and range of training over the years.  I am not interested in delivering a massage routine - what I am interested in is working and engaging with you to find what works for you.
