All About Me
As a child I was always shy, nervous and anxious and used to worry about anything and everything. When I reached 16 years of age I became more confident and outgoing, but this was a bit of a facade and underneath it I was still very anxious and unsure of myself. When I reached my mid-twenties a relationship break up hit me hard and out of nowhere I began suffering with extreme and debilitating anxiety and panic attacks. I was recommended to try alternative therapies which had an instant effect on me and with regular treatments my anxiety was soon under control. During my late 20s I started to suffer with terrible PMT which would last for two weeks per month and by the time my first daughter was about 6 months old my anxiety had crept back in and was having a negative effect on my day to day life. I was short tempered and irritable and it was affecting my relationship with my husband. I began to reintroduce alternative therapies and started having regular Reiki. After each session it was as if I was put under a spell which would last until my next treatment. The consistency of regular treatments transformed me. I felt like a completely different person and it strengthened my relationship with my husband and allowed me to become more present with my daughter. My PMT was much improved and I felt so much calmer, grounded, joyful, confident and happy. I had more resilience to deal with the strains of life as a busy working mum. And this wasn't just a blessing for me, it positively affected my whole household.
Over the years I've learned the best ways to help keep my anxiety under control. Reiki and massage have been my saviours along with other tools that I've built into my everyday life. Tools which can provide most support on those not so easy days.
In my twenties I was lucky enough to spend many years travelling the world and in that time I discovered various massage disciplines and other alternative therapies. This enhanced my realisation regarding the positive benefits that these therapies had on me, physically, emotionally and psychologically. Natural alternative therapies then became one of my biggest passions in life. After many office jobs, including being an Executive Assistant to company CEOs for 15 years, I decided, in 2010 to learn professional massage (I'd already studied Reiki in my early 20s) and make my big passion also my career.
Due to having experienced stress, anxiety and overwhelm myself and having spent so much time learning ways to keep my anxiety at bay, this has been the driving force for me wanting to help others in the same position. I'm passionate about helping people overcome anxiety and stress and all of the other issues that arise from these feelings. I want to help people to feel joy, have more resilience, improve their relationships and live their best and most fulfilled lives. I like to treat my body as naturally as possible and want to offer my clients the opportunity to improve their physical and emotional health in the most natural way.
Stressed out office workers visit me. I see many mums at different stages of motherhood and also mums to be, and being a mum myself I understand their needs. I also have experience treating people with disabilities and the elderly. I provide massage in from a private treatment room in Devizes, Wiltshire, I can also provide a mobile service in the comfort of your home and in recent years I've grown a team of fantastic and experienced therapists and together we provide massage in offices and at events and festivals and well as a mobile massage service covering East London, Essex and Hertfordshire.
Over the years I have studied many different styles of massage. I am qualified in Holistic, Deep Tissue, Pregnancy, Postnatal, Seated Acupressure, Massage for Trauma, Restorative Massage, Trigger Point Therapy and Neuromuscular Technique. I have studied Usui Reiki (Levels 1 & 2) and have attended Shamanic courses such as the Munay Ki, taken part in Ancestral healing and have attended numerous Ayahuasca ceremonies, as well as doing my own deep research into various philosophies, nutrition, health and the law of attraction. I am a dedicated learner and I live every day to continue on this path in developing my skills so that I can be the best therapist I can be.
When I'm not working I love hanging out with my family and friends. I'm married to Dan, mum to two gorgeous girls and also a handsome Cavapoo called Nugget.
I enjoy spending time in nature, experiencing deep healing practices, trying to live out of my comfort zone where possible, cooking and eating tasty healthy food, doing yoga when I can, reading (normally self development books), exploring and travelling whenever possible and being an information junkie - I'm rather addicted to podcasts, and recently have been devouring information about health, wellness, manifestation, law of attraction, business tips and the environment.
Knowledge is king after all and so I will share what I have learned, along with my intuition to help you however best I can.
Are you ready to make a change in your life? If so you're in the right place and I really look forward to working with you.
Whether you are having the Talk Touch Heal Treatment with me, one of the many mobile treatments offered by my team or you require massage or another complementary therapy at your office or event I will be so happy to help you.
