Sports and Holistic Massage

I offer a broad range of holistic massage therapies to help restore harmony and balance to your mind, body and soul. Today’s busy and stressful lifestyles can leave little time for ourselves, with pressure from work, family commitments and everyday issues and anxieties. It is so important to take time out for our own wellbeing and relaxation in order to restore our energy.
I am a fully qualified therapist with over 15 years experience of working within the health and wellbeing industry.
