Certified Acupressure Therapist, Reflexologist and Postural Alignment Coach.
Healing is in my blood. Handed down through generations on my mother's side, my great grandfather a reknowned Latvian Homeopath, and great uncle a herbalist, roaming the mountains of Bulgaria in search of medicinal plants.
I have been around Acupressure, Yoga and Reflexology from the age of 14 when my parents had the foresight to bring therapists to our home for treatments - it was inevitable that this was the path for me.
In 17 years as a manual therapist I have treated a wide range of clients (both athletes and non athletes) and have worked regularly with International rugby players.
I consider myself an artist of Manual Therapy.
My treatments all have bases in foundational Therapies, and I have curated, selecting from a variety of other modalities, my own version of these Therapies, moulding tachniques with energetic work to produce unique treatments.
With a background in dance and martial arts, I have a strong belief in the mind / body connection. I am committed to helping people achieve optimal health and performance through regular treatments, follow-on advice and good humour!
My clients are my governing body. My work is my life and I am regularly updating my skills for them. As a result, I can draw on a wide variety of disciplines to best suit my clients’ needs at any given time.
IT IS THE THERAPIST'S DUTY TO ENCOURAGE AN ONGOING STATE OF BALANCE IN BODY AND MIND FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE
I GET MY KICKS FROM THE ‘AHA’ MOMENT THAT COMES WITH UNCOVERING THE ROOT OF AN ISSUE
My treatments look at the whole being, past, present and future, rather than one symptom. Which aspects of the client’s body or energy, vital fluid flow are not balanced? Past traumas, both physical and emotional can be especially relevant. The question ‘what can be done for this specific injury’ isn’t always relevant. Sometimes the question should be, ‘why does this client have this injury’?
The Manual Therapy I provide is designed to return, and maintain the body in status quo so that you can feel better, move better and perform better for longer.
I believe we are a team striving to achieve success and as such, must have complete trust in one another and also enjoy working together!
