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.
I am continuing my professional development this year with short courses to enhance my massage and reflexology skills. I am also in the final year of a three-year qigong teacher training course with a view to running qigong classes for older people from 2019. See my blog post about qigong and tai chi to learn more about these 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.
