It's a privilege to treat a variety of wonderful people; professional athletes, the elderly, weekend warriors, those with chronic pain, expectant mothers and every age and stage in between! My goal is to provide you with an exceptional standard of clinical massage therapy, in a relaxing and professional environment.
I pride myself in focusing on your specific needs and really listening to what you want from your treatment. It's a real thrill to see clients get more out of life and feel the benefits of massage therapy - less tension and headaches, injury recovery, pain relief, increased mobility, more efficient muscle recovery following physical exertion and decreased stress levels mentally and emotionally.

Sports/Deep Tissue Massage: for aches, pains, strains, tightness, aiding in recovery and maintaining the health and mobility of joints and muscles. Great for anyone involved with sports or intensive training.
Remedial Massage: dealing with conditions such as migraines, stress, tension and chronic pain. We have been able to assist with clients living with neuralgia, nerve damage, Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes and paralysis to name a few.
Restorative: if you need to relax, destress and calm the para-sympathetic nervous system massage can definitely help. A remedial element can be incorporated if required, or you could try a hot stone massage.
We have the expertise to design your massage experience to give you the best possible outcome. This may also include a treatment plan and homecare advice to maximise your results.
Clinical massage therapy can also be complimentary to Chiropractic, Osteo or Physio and we often work in conjunction with other healthcare providers. We may suggest a referral if necessary to ensure you receive the safest and most appropriate care. In some cases we may ask for approval to conduct treatments from your GP or healthcare specialist.

Dry needling is minimally invasive and uses Chinese Acupuncture needles to treat muscular-skeletal pain, and can easily be incorporated into your massage treatment if desired. It is very effective for releasing those nasty painful trigger points, as the needle can penetrate deeper into the muscle than the therapist's thumb or elbow. Needles may also be placed in other areas and/or corresponding muscles to increase healing. Needling may elicit a localised “twitch response” which indicates the needle is in the right spot. Any discomfort usually decreases while the needle is in place – much the same as a neuro-muscular trigger point when static pressure is applied.
Do you remember seeing Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps with large red-purple circles on his shoulders and back? That's cupping! Cupping, like massage, is an ancient form of therapy where different types of cups are applied to the body creating suction which draws up stagnant blood and separates the muscle fibers. Cupping can have a positive effect on circulation, fascia, joints, lymph, skin and muscle tissue, and can be incorporated into your regular massage. The marks left on the body after cupping are not bruises (which would be caused by impact or pressure) but where the blood has been drawn up through the tissue to the surface. These marks will usually fade within 7 days.
Hot Stone Massage
A stand alone and sublimely restorative treatment for the muscular-skeletal and para-sympathetic nervous systems.
The basalt stones used for hot stone massage are a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. They are very smooth and feel divine when used in place of the therapist's hands. Stones will be carefully placed on areas of the body to warm and release the muscles, while others are moved across the muscles similar to a hands-on massage.
The combination of these techniques results in deep blissful relaxation for the muscles and nerves.
A very popular treatment - especially in winter.
Pregnancy massage is so amazing to receive during this very special time. We safely work around whatever stage you're at whether you need time out to relax or you have tension/discomfort in a specific area....or both!
Lighter strokes are used and our clients lie on their side with a body pillow for comfort. Pure bliss, you won't be disappointed!
