AS LONG AS THE MIND CAN ENVISION THE FACT YOU CAN DO SOMETHING, YOU WILL DO IT. 

PERSONAL TRAINING

After working on my own mental and physical health over the past 8 years, I feel that I have a good understanding of what works and what doesn't. Whether you want to lose weight or just improve overall fitness, if you work with me, you can skip past all the mistakes that I made when wanting to lose weight, use my wisdom to get effective results quicker. 

ANY INJURY IS NOT JUST A PROCESS OF RECOVERY,IT'S A PROCESS OF DISCOVERY

SPORTS MASSAGE

My training is in Sports Massage Therapy, Postural Correction and Myofascial Release. I have been practicing for over 5 years now and have developed a specialism in pain and injury in the posterior chain. This includes specialist treatments for the back muscles, structures in and around the hip and the legs. 

I firmly believe that when a patient comes to me with pain, that should not be put through more pain to fix their ailment. My treatments aim to relax muscle tissues and encourage natural healing processes to take place. 

I also belive that someone should be treated within 3 sessions, if a patient has not seen noticeable difference I will aim to refer the person to a different specialist based on the patients needs.
