My background in nursing and I worked in the NHS. After discovering the benefits of massage for myself I completed an HND in Complementary Therapies while bringing up a family. With a keen interest in running and fitness I decided to completed a Diploma in Sports Massage and more recently qualified as a Pilates instructor.
The most rewarding part of my work is successfully treating people involved in sports, working or simply from the stresses and strains of daily life. However, I also enjoys providing the more relaxing treatments such as reflexology or therapeutic massage which can calm the mind as well as relax the body, helping to reduce stress and tension.
I studied an HND in Complementary Therapies at the Adam Smith College, Kirkcaldy. I undertook further studies with the Scottish School of Professional Massage and gained a Diploma in Sports Massage in 2007.
During the COVID pandemic I had a lot of free time and took the opportunity to train as a Pilates Mat Work teacher.
I regularly undertakes CPD and advanced training courses to keep up-to-date and add new skills to my practice.
The professional bodies I belong to include:
- CThA and the CNHC
These organisations exist to guarantee the public high standards of practice and ethics when using the service of its members.
