Complementary therapies are part of my life, I use them daily whether that’s using an aromatherapy blend as a body oil, diffusing essential oils in my house, giving my children and husband treatments, practising mindfulness, doing yoga/pilates or having a massage. I’ve learnt over the years the huge importance of listening to my body and nurturing it.
My journey began when I developed M.E/CFS in the first month of my first year at university. Approximately 3 years into the illness, alongside conventional medical care I started using complementary therapies and found it helped to improve my quality of life and bring comfort to coping with a chronic condition. From this point on wards I realised the need to keep my body in balance.
Over the subsequent years I have made changes to my diet, exercise regime and relaxation methods. I have used many different therapies, Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Nutrition, Acupuncture and Osteopathy, all which have helped at different stages of my life.
I am always reading books, following health professionals, bloggers, other therapists and love to learn about new discoveries and different approaches. I will always share my knowledge with my clients.
I truly love what I do, it’s incredibly rewarding whether that’s to allow someone the time and space to relax and unwind, help them become pain free or to assist them on a journey of recovery.
Each and every client is a privilege to work with.
