A Personal Approach
My passion for a career in bodywork came from a strong desire to help people. My own personal journey however, led me down the path of specialising in treating chronic pain.
In my early 20’s I worked as a Duty Manager in a sports centre, where the majority of the work was at a computer desk. I ended up with debilitating RSI pain. I also had recurring back pain from a previous fall. The pain at times effected my entire being, physically and emotionally. I needed help.
Bodywork was my saviour, in particular I received medical massage, myofascial release and physiotherapy which all helped immensely. Through receiving bodywork I was able to see the incredible benefits of a variety of techniques for treating chronic pain.
During my 30’s, particularly after childbirth and during the early child rearing years, I suffered with more chronic pain. My entire body hurt. The pain co-existed with on- going life challenges. The more I had to explore myself, the more I learnt ways to clear my own pain, and the deeper my work grew.
My exploration showed me that pain can be multifaceted. Physical, emotional, spiritual, energetic and lifestyle can all play their part. This knowledge led me to investigate Chronic pain at a much deeper level, often using myself to learn the most deepest of lessons.
My other passion is health and fitness. I worked in the leisure industry for 19 years, gaining knowledge on lifestyle, various approaches to fitness, training and mental well- being. I am dedicated to my own health and fitness and this approach I feel helps others. My approach to clearing pain from the body includes not just hands on bodywork but looking at the person holistically. I encourage movement and exercise for clearing pain.
I have been a bodyworker for 15 years and during this time have explored many many types of bodywork and other techniques to clear pain from the body. Bodywork is also excellent for supporting you through challenging times and supporting you in your well-being.
