I qualified from The London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) with a Level 5 BTEC Diploma and I am a member of the ISRM (Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage).
I started my career helping with Charlton Athletic Ladies Football Team before renting a room from the Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes at her premises in Kent and at The Manor Clinic in Sevenoaks. I also work with an agency and my work has included treating players of the 2019 World Cup England Cricket team and the Samoan Rugby 7's team.
I am also trained in Kinesiology Taping, which I learned from John Gibbons, the Oxford Rowing Team therapist, at Oxford University and I continue my CPD with John Gibbons.
My clients range from office workers with neck pain to athletes preparing for competition. I also treat a range of conditions including sciatica and plantar fasciitis, treating according to individual abilities and needs. I will assess and apply a range of soft tissue techniques with massage to aid recovery from injury and improve soft tissue condition and joint mobility. I will also offer advice on a range of remedial exercises and lifestyle factors aimed at speeding up recovery, preventing injury recurrence and improving posture, performance and function. The first treatment will include a full assessment and medical history.
