I've been involved in the sport and fitness industry most of my life. I completed a BA in Human Movement Science in 1992 and went on to work as a personal trainer and further my studies at the Institute of Sport & Remedial Massage (ISRM). I am now a qualified Pilates mat work instructor and am continuing my development with training in special populations e.g. pre and post natal, older populations, groups needing special consideration such as breast cancer and individuals needing specific back care.
Through continuing work with individuals from many walks of life, I have developed a broad understanding of how sporting activities and everyday stresses and strains caused by poor posture or technique and injury, can weaken the muscular skeletal system and cause severe, sometimes debilitating pain.
By combining deep tissue massage with Pilates it is possible make remarkable improvements in the alleviation of these stresses and strains leading to pain free living and reducing physical ageing.
