Massage therapy and reiki healing is my third choice of career.
Initially I worked as Merchant Navy Deck Officer, when I travelled and saw a lot of the world. This is when I first became aware of the benefits of massage for stress reduction and relaxation. After weeks at sea my first call ashore was often for a massage.

I then became a mother to three lovely daughters and developed an interest in learning through play, and child development, which led to a career supporting families and staff in playgroups and toddler groups.
Now I hope to pass on to others the healing benefits I have personally gained from enjoying massage and reiki, and finally learning the benefits of taking time to nurture myself over the last few years.
