Having been interested in massage since early adulthood, I was inspired to learn the skill after receiving my first facial massage (which, as luck would have it, I had won in a raffle). It felt such a beautiful, relaxing experience that I wanted to be able to offer the same gift to others. Since qualifying in holistic massage, I have also trained in reflexology. You can find out more about the holistic therapies that I provide in the Holistic Therapies section of this website.
I completed my three-year qigong teacher training course in October and will be running classes locally from January 2020. See the Tai Chi & Qigong section of the wesbite for details.
I will be continuing my professional development in 2020 with ongoing training in the internal martial arts and in antenatal reflexology.
In my spare time I enjoy the stimulation of running, swimming and cycling, and relaxing with qigong, tai chi and yoga. I love learning about health and well being, so I usually have a book related to that on the go.
