What to expect
I use connective tissue (fascia) manipulation techniques that can either be deep as to break down fibrous adhesions and stimulate areas that may appear dormant, or more subtle acting on superficial fascial layers to lengthen, stretch, re-align tissue. I encourage my clients to participate with active movement while I work through the tissue layers, restoring their health & function. I believe that your active participation and engaged mind is what makes recovery effective! The techniques I use are pain-free and appear subtle at first, but their physical and neurological effects can be huge.
I am fascinated by how the body as a whole functions and adapts to postural (mis-) alignments, habits and discrepancies. I enjoy the rehabilitation and remedial aspect of massage as well as sharing knowledge about body awareness and posture.

Each year I volunteer for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust at the London Marathon. It is a pleasure assisting those runners that make it to the end and always have a story to share!
In my spare time I train at the gym as well as outdoors, but I am happiest when I indulge my passion for martial arts and combat sports! I have engaged in various disciplines such as kickboxing, Jeet Kune Do & Wing Chun amongst others. I adore wrestling, in particular freestyle, and have just started dabbling in gymnastics!
