While I have never been an athlete, movement and developing an awareness of the physical concerning wellbeing and balance have always been important. I moved from the sports of my youth to martial arts and cultivating movement in adulthood. One of my favourite activities is walking in nature, along rivers, streams and in the woods.
My particular focus for the last 20 years has been studying the connection between mind and body and how you can create harmony between them. One that goes beyond what we think possible. Since becoming a professional bodyworker and massage therapist in 2012, I allow these experiences to flow into my work.
I am passionate about massage therapy because it is unique. It gives us immediate access to positively enhance our body perception and body sensitivity while creating space for deep relaxation and rejuvenation. Focusing on our inner experience fosters a deeper connection with the body, enabling us to recognise current patterns. Creating change becomes a more readily available option.
Having overcome back and knee injuries in the past with manual therapy and movement has given me an insight into recovery. It has informed my own remedial and therapeutic approach and in developing successful strategies for my clients.
