About Me

My choice to leave an unfulfilling corporate career and move into the field of complementary therapy has changed my life, and left me with a genuine understanding of the stress of modern high-pressure workplaces. I believe that by assisting clients to reduce their physical discomfort, they may be able to reconnect with their own inner balance, and bring some peace and wellness back into their hectic lives.
