I am fully qualified to VTCT level 4 in sports injury therapy and deep tissue massage having studied with Cornwall College, I furthered my knowledge in this field by continual training and development such as qualifying in the use of warm bamboo techniques and training with the back injury clinic to progress my skill base. We are located in North Cornwall within easy access of Newquay, Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin.
I am passionate about providing a professional therapy experience for people from elite athletes to those that simply want to relax and feel energised. I qualified in the use of aromatherapy holistic massage to ITEC level 3 in 2006 and combined my learning with my interest in the use of alternative therapy and energy fields to become a Reiki master.
In addition to my work in human therapy I am also fully qualified and experience in equine massage therapy which allows me to combine my love of horses with my professional passion.

Warm Bamboo Massage:
Originally from Asia and gaining popularity in the UK, this new therapy is wonderful to have if you like deep tissue work. It will leaves you feeling relaxed and energised and with a sense that your muscles have been stretched, warmed and elongated.
Warm bamboo massage uses solid bamboo sticks of different lengths and diameters to massage the body. The sticks are gently warmed and applied to give deep and long massage strokes to break down tension and stretch tight muscles.
This treatment especially works well for runners and cyclists experiencing tightness in their legs, feet and IT band. It is also of great benefit to anyone suffering from shortened muscles due to postural imbalances.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.

or feel stress, if it is high. we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
