I am really passionate about living a healthy, energetic and active lifestyle. I have 6 years’ experience as a Personal Trainer and 7 years’ experience as a massage therapist.
I love to spend time with my friends and family. Sometimes that’s cooking up a storm in the kitchen, seeing what I can create using lots of raw, fresh ingredients, or TGIF wine and cheese with the girls. Apart from my day to day exercise regime, being an adventurous person usually means you find me involved in some kind of outdoor activity.
I believe that hard work, mixed with a little pleasure and a commitment to your values and beliefs is the key to living a really fulfilling life. We all have life commitments or situations that get in the way of being able to dedicate 100% of our effort to ourselves. This shouldn’t be a reason or excuse not to begin or to give up.

Deep Tissue Massage reaches to the deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissues surrounding muscles) by using firm pressure and slow strokes. It is used to break up scar tissue or break down muscle “knots” that can disturb circulation, cause pain and inflammation as well as limit your range of motion.
A relaxation massage is great for your mind and body. It will help you to de-stress and loosen up your muscles. It is ideal for people who have had a hardworking week or want to treat themselves to some TLC!
A deep relaxation massage is an all purpose massage and makes a great gift.
Dry needling uses a thin acupuncture needle to penetrate and stimulate deeper into the muscles, this then begins to release the painful trigger points or “knots” and increases the healing and recovery process. It is different to acupuncture. Acupuncture is a method based on traditional Chinese medicine. It is performed by qualified acupuncturists.
Sports massage treatments can be given pre-event to ready the body for athletic activities and help prevent injury. They can also be given post event to help athletes recover from their specific sport or any injuries incurred. Sports massage therapy takes into account all of the body’s anatomy and physiology as well as the specific demands placed on the client’s body through their sport.
Therapeutic massage may be used as a part of a general wellness program. This can mean a standalone treatment or on a regular massage maintenance program. Therapeutic massage is aimed at the mobilization of soft tissue (such as muscle, fascia and body fluids) to re-establish systemic and biomechanical/functional use. People such as office workers, athletes, labourers or people who experience high levels of stress, regularly receive therapeutic massage to keep them in good physical condition.
Pregnancy massage focuses on the special needs of the mother to be. It is a therapeutic treatment that enhances the function of muscles and joints to support the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It will also improve circulation and relieves mental and physical fatigue
