About Me

7.meI am an FHT registered and fully insured therapist and accredited massage tutor. I have many years of medical experience in addition to my 23 years+ experience in massage therapy. I specialise in children with cerebral palsy, domestic abuse and PTSD, pregnancy and postnatal health, women's health and post surgical care, as well as sports injuries.

After teaching student nurses and running Active Birth workshops, I decided to start teaching massage because I recognise that there are too many gaps in massage training. Students are taught the contraindications, but not how to apply them. They go into practice not understanding basic medical conditions that they will regularly be faced with or how to tell when something is a contraindication or a precaution.

MEDICAL EXPERIENCE

medical (2)My massage training is unique because it draws on the knowledge and skills I have from my medical career, incorporating those into the massage arena.

I worked across a wide range of specialities as a surgical nurse, (gynaecology, general surgery, orthopaedics, recovery, ear, nose and throat, cosmetic and endoscopy) as well as dealing with terminally ill patients. I am particularly knowledgeable about women’s health, having been diagnosed with endometriosis, which for years left me in daily chronic pain and with fertility issues. Not only can I teach therapists about the medical side, but I can also help them to understand how chronic pain affects someone personally because I've experienced it and know first hand the impact it has on daily life. It is often this personal experience that clients relate to, and it is my personal experience that adds another dimension to my training.
