What is your background
I grew up in London having been born in Cambridge. Cambridge was a small market town with a thriving University, with a close-knit community full of academic and creative spirits. During my childhood, I travelled extensively in Europe and gained a love of the outdoors the natural beauty of the earth, healthy living and other cultures.

I love the fact that it is deeply healing and restorative for a wide range of conditions with mental, emotional and physical benefits. Massage helps people reconnect to themselves and to their lives in general with a renewed sense of clarity and purpose with the deep sense of relaxation that massage therapy provides.
What are your hobbies and interests?
My hobbies and interests include Yoga, swimming, water sports, walking, reading, dance and personal training.
What are you most passionate about/why have you chosen this career?
I am most passionate about massage therapy due to its scope for long-term and profound healing on people’s lives. There is always something more to learn and new techniques to master with its roots in traditional eastern culture. I am interested in the body’s energy systems and how to harness the healing power of the body and mind into healing itself through guided imagery , visualization, relaxation and massage technique, stretching& strengthening. Utilising the breath and learning correct breathing technique is also imperative to maximize oxygenation and circulation of the blood to the related affected tissues of the body. Working with a wide range of people and with every day being different is also hugely rewarding.
