Like many massage therapists I went into the field after having experienced the benefits of a professional massage myself. After a particularly strenuous week of strength training I found myself in need of some TLC to relieve me of the resultant aches and pains. After my first massage session I was hooked. This made the decision to study massage an obvious choice.
Enrolling for a fantastic year of training at the Bristol Centre for Massage and Bodywork (BCMB) only furthered my passion for the profession. Using my understanding of anatomy that I had gained from my time in the gym, I undertook further training in sports massage and myofascial release.
Massage to me will always be about helping people feel more comfortable in their bodies; whether that be by alleviating the aches and pains of daily life, improving training potential, or just helping relaxation.
I continue to further my understanding and develop new techniques by working with clients who suffer from muscular related conditions. It gives me a great sense of achievement when someone walks away feeling more comfortable, having benefited from my skills.
My year of training in Holistic Massage at BCMB earned me my level 4 diploma. The course covered a wide variety of techniques and types of massage. I am registered under the Massage Training Institute (MTI) and Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
I completed training at the European School of Osteopathy in Sports Massage, resulting in a Level 3 ITEC qualification.
As of the Autumn of 2017 I attended a Postural Assesment course at BCMB.
I have achieved my Level 3 in Myofascial Release with MFRUK as of Spring 2018.
Most recently I've finished a course on Kinesiology Taping.
