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, which I find one of the most relaxing treatments. You can find out more about the holistic therapies that I provide in the Holistic Therapies section of this website. 

I discovered qigong fifteen years ago and immediately knew that I wanted to teach it one day. As the saying goes "when the student is ready, the teacher appears" and so mine did. After practising qigong and tai chi for several years, I completed my three-year qigong teacher training course in 2019 and am now running classes in Berkshire. You can find more about these on the Qigong pages of my website. I am continuing my professional development in 2021 with ongoing training in the internal martial arts.

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.
