After starting my early career as a social worker in Scotland, my love for people and travel eventually took me to the Algarve in Portugal where I worked extensively in the surf and tourism industry, before combining all of my passions in people, travel and surf culture, to train as a massage therapist. My original training is in Swedish, Deep tissue and Myofascial release body work, and I like to combine these techniques, working intuitively with what your body needs both physiologically and emotionally, and how you respond to treatment.
Having focused primarily on working with supporting recovery and performance within the surfing community, my work has developed more to focus on postural awareness and improving day to day body awareness to help you make improvements in your understanding of postural and overall comfort and movement.
Most recently I have expanded my services in the area of pregnancy and post-natal care, providing therapies and Hypnobirthing to support women and parents to have a positive experience throughout and beyond pregnancy. I am extremely passionate about helping parents to improve their experience and access support services during this time.
When I am not treating clients, I will most likely be pursuing my other passion; spending time with my misfit crew of rescue dogs who are just the best…!
