Who I am,  my story and how I work

I am qualified Level 5 Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist. I trained at one of the UK's leading colleges Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork I am also DBS checked. 

As an experienced massage therapist I offer therapeutic massage therapy and sports massage therapy to treat a range of issues including muscle soreness and pain, specific injuries caused by sports activity or from general wear and tear. Or if you just want time to relax and unwind I can do that too. 

I use a range of advanced massage techniques including, deep tissue, fascia release, compression, soft tissue release, assisted stretching and mobilisation. Each treatment is tailored to the needs of the client. 

Massage can enhance the body's natural healing ability both on a physical and a psychological level. Working together using massage we can help relive pain, encourage healing and help facilitate a healthier, happier life. 

My Story 
I have always been interested in how the body works and moves. I have witnessed first hand the benefits of treatment and regular massage. 

That is why I chose to be a massage therapist. But I haven't  always been a massage therapist.

I began my career as a dancer, studying contemporary dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, until I had to give up the dream of becoming a professional dancer due to injury. I retrained as a theatre designer and later as an arts manager. I have worked in the dance sector for many years co-founding two dance companies along the way. I have a MA in arts management from Royal College of Music and Drama. 

I have lived in Risca (in the Gwent Valleys) London, Berlin, Cardiff and now here in Bristol, where I intend to stay. What a fabulous city. 

I am a graduate of the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork the leading massage training college in the South West where I studied Level 5 Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy. I worked as a therapist at Bristol Massage Therapy before concentrating on my own practice.  

In 2021 I  qualified as a certified Oncology massage therapist. It is an absolute honour to be able to support people at a very vulnerable time and to help ease the discomfort and anxiety of coping with cancer. 

I am a runner and percussionist, I play  washboard. I have a gorgeous black Labrador called Grace and two pretty amazing grown up children. I am married to a musician, we gig together often as Blind Justice Page. 

I am a member of the Massage Training Institute and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

How I work 

After making initial contact with the body feeling where tension sits, I use slow deep strokes to target the inner layers of muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms due to the bodies natural wear and tear. I work slowly and intuitively, feeling where tension, adhesions are present in the body. Sometimes working deeply to realign fibres, sometimes more superficially, always I respond to the body. ​I work using drapes only exposing the parts of the body I am working on, or I can work through clothing whichever is more comfortable for my clients.

Therapeutic massage can be used to reduce stress, decrease pain and increase feeling of calm and relaxation. The relaxation response is the state in which the heart rate slows and blood pressure goes down. The production of stress hormones also decrease as feel good hormones are released. Feel good hormones such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine positively affect emotions and promote calm and relaxation. Sometime there may be a little discomfort, especially working with an injury but my aim is to relax the body and support it to self heal. The body does an amazing job every day, sometimes it just needs a little help.
