I have always had an interest in health and fitness, and I worked as an acupuncturist specialising in women’s health before taking a break to look after my three young children.
As the children started to grow and went to school I was really keen to get back to work as a therapist, and embarking on a massage diploma seemed the perfect path to take. I had lots of massages when pregnant and postnatally and was always amazed at the power of massage to heal.
I undertook a Level 3 Sports Massage diploma with T3 Education which has given me not only advanced clinical massage skills but also a deep understanding of how the body moves and what might be going on with the muscles at a deeper level.
My training also allows me to work with clients to prescribe home care exercises and stretches to really enable you to maximise the effectiveness of your treatment and achieve your goals.
I have also completed pregnancy and post natal massage training with the highly regarded Burrell Education, experts in the field of women’s health. This course not only gave me the skills to offer a nurturing pregnancy massage, it also went deep into post natal health and the functional issues which can arise after pregnancy.
I have also recently trained as a birth and postnatal doula and will be offering this service as well in the new year.

Let me give you 75 minutes of pure relaxation, during which I will also ease any aches and pains. I can offer this service in my clinic space in Haslemere or if you have little ones at home I can come to you and treat you at your home if that’s easier for you. Either way I will provide all the towels, sheets, pregnancy safe balms and music necessary to allow you to totally switch off and rest at this exciting but often exhausting time

Post natal repair massage
This important time is one where new mums can often feel a bit at sea, adjusting to their role as a new mum and the challenges that can bring. My post natal repair massage treatments work best as a package, over 3 sessions I will allow you time to talk about your birth experience and how you are feeling, check your tummy for diastasis (muscle separation), and take a really in depth look at any muscle aches and pains you may be suffering. Massage and breathing strategies are the first steps to diastasis rehabilitation so I can help with this and if you had a c-section we can also go through some scar recovery massage techniques too. This healing treatment can provide much needed nurturing for new mums at a time when a lot of the focus often shifts to the baby.
COST : £150 for 3 sessions
