, Massage Therapist, Myofascial Release, Reiki - London
I am a Soft Tissue Therapist specialising in Myofascial Release (in the style of John F Barnes) and Sports/remedial massage and an Energy Healer using Reiki and the Honey Healing Method to offers treatments that work on the body and mind. I use a combination of the techniques available to me to work with my clients to ease their aches and pains. I work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages and abilities to promote their best health and well-being.
I originally trained as a Sport & Remedial Massage Therapist with the highly regarded London School of Sports Massage in 2010 and have added to this base with Myofascial Release (MFR), training with Myofascial Release UK since 2012. To me the MFR approach has the capability of working not only on short term conditions, but also releases long held postures and adaptations in the body. It has a long lasting effects and allows my clients to safely and easily work past restrictions. The restrictions that MFR clears to reduce pain and increase movement frequently have an emotional element to them, so I find this subject fascinating and a wonderful bridge between the body and mind.
I have trained with Ruth Duncan of Myofascial Release UK since 2012 and am one of the first group to complete their Advanced Clinical Diploma in Myofascial Release. This is the first Diploma of its kind in the UK (launched 2014) and involved 15 days worth of courses as well as coursework and case studies. I now assist Ruth and Linda in teaching on their Diploma courses.
In 2017 I travelled to the USA to train with John F Barnes (the creator of the sustained style of MFR that I use) This was in the wonderful centre that is Sedona, Arizona. I will be travelling back there to continue training with John as soon as I am able.
My training in energy work started with Meditation, Reiki and Emotional Realignment Therapy when I studied with James E Honey, the creator of Emotional Realignment Therapy and its successor:the Honey Healing Method. I'm now a Reiki Master/Teacher, and I'm a member of the UK Reiki Federation. I believe that Reiki offers considerable benefits in a stressful world and that its energy work can help in so many ways to balance the body and mind. Through the CPD that the UK Reiki Federation require of me I am continually seeing Reiki as a system of personal development that also allows me to help others to heal.
I was trained for Emotional Realignment Therapy (ERT) and its successor The Honey Healing Method by its creator, J.E. Honey. They are both revolutionary approaches to permanently clearing emotional blocks and the issues that are caused by these blockages in a person's energy body. I am one of a small number of qualified Honey Healing Method and ERT practitioners in the world, and is delighted to offer it in the London area.
I have added the Yoga Teacher Training (2015-2017) to my list of skills so that I can help my clients learn how to move their bodies in a way that is beneficial to them. The 500 hour equivalent course that I completed with the London Yoga Teacher Training Group (LYTTG) is based upon the work of Vanda Scaravelli. This style is towards the slower end of yoga, with an emphasis of working with your body and how it interacts with the group in which ever pose is being worked towards. It also encourages the students to feel what is happening in their body and to see if there are ways to reduce the amount of effort used in the movement that we are looking to do. The main area that is trying to be moved is the spine in response to the breath

Approach to Therapy & How I Work
My approach looks at the whole body and how you use and adapt to your daily life. I look at the body as a three-dimensional entity that has been used in a way it can no longer cope with, and the history of traumas and injuries we have all suffered from plays a large part in this. I work with my clients and their bodies to achieve a release of restrictions and holding patterns, and work well within the pain tolerance of my customers. I usually give advice on exercises, stretches and self-care routines that you can do between sessions to maintain the benefits I believe you will feel after my treatment. My aim is to help you to look after yourself with assistance from me as necessary, and whilst initially I like to work with someone with a number of weekly sessions I want to move clients into a maintenance phase as soon as is possible.
I would love to be able to say that I can cure anyone of their aches and pains, but that would be wrong. What I will say is that I will do my best to help and support you though the healing process, and strongly believes that what I offer will be beneficial to you.
I am committed to providing you with a thorough, professional approach to you and your individual needs, adjusting my treatments to provide you with the best level of care. I will endeavour to keep you informed about the stages of your treatment, but let me know if you want more information. I am merely human and I will do my very best to give you the best treatment that I am able to.
If I am unable to help you, or feel that you would benefit from a different modality or therapeutic approach with a different practitioner then I will tell you and offer a suggestion as to a practitioner to see.
Ultimately, I want you to get better and back on your feet. I will do everything I can to help you with this. I believe that the therapies I offer support and complement conventional medicine, but that the services I give should never be used as a replacement for a medical diagnosis of a condition.
