Certified Acupressure Therapist, Reflexologist and Postural Alignment Coach.
Healing is in my bloood. 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 basis 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. 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!
I TREAT EVERY CLIENT WITH THE EXACTING STANDARD OF CARE AND ATTENTION I DEMAND FOR MYSELF
Using regular in-house therapy treatments, employers see reductions in absenteeism and stress. They notice increased motivation and concentration.
Most importantly, they notice an improvement in overall mood.
Happy people = a happy company!
With a regular programme of Alignment Therapy and Massage treatments, incidence of repetitive injuries and slow recovery times improve greatly.
The body responds more readily to current protocols.
Athletes can run faster, respond quicker, be stronger and function at their best for longer.
If the body is misaligned due to disfunction of the muscles, the pelvic region will be out of alignment.
This creates an abnormal environment for organs to function in and lead to difficulties in the reproductive organs - this applies to men as well as women.
Postural Alignment work can be of great benefit for this region.
