I’m really excited to be joining the team at The Alma Vale Centre from 1st March.
After living in Brighton for 15 years I’ve made the move to the West country and Bristol, a city I’ve always loved visiting and can now call home.
I’ve been a massage practitioner for 5 years and it’s a job I find hugely rewarding. I feel it’s much more than a job though, when I treat clients I feel the benefits too. I believe that receiving a treatment is an opportunity to be in the moment, to let go of thoughts, to tune in to our bodies and the sensations within it. This is basic self-care and too easily forgotten. When I treat, I’m in the moment too.
My initial massage course was holistic therapies and I have since added deep tissue techniques, indian head massage, hot stone therapy and advanced clinical massage techniques to give me a broader skill base as I’ve found myself wanting to learn more and to be able to offer more.
My experiences include working in a day spa, volunteering at a hospice, working in healing areas at festivals and events, being a member of a complementary therapy charity and treating private clients in my own home. This variety of settings has given me the ability to adapt and to be professional.
I also have counselling qualifications which have proved invaluable in my work as a therapist.
I’m looking forward to meeting new clients and giving a service that’s as individual as it is rejuvenating.
