How did it all begin?

... As a former Veterinary Nurse for 15 yrs, In 2004 I decided to pursue a new career in holistic therapy.

I completed my FHT accredited Certificate in Swedish Body Massage and became fascinated with Reflexology, leading me to gain my AoR certified Reflexology Diploma in 2005.

 

With the arrival of children, I decided to focus on my career as a Reflexology & Massage therapist, and have since gained my Level 3/4 certificate in Sports Massage therapy, as well as continuing my professional development with further education and courses to keep my skills up to date.

A Mum of 2 (now teens), my spare time is enjoyed spending time with family, being in the outdoors - walking with our dog, or sorting out the garden.

And a great lover of paddle-boarding, skiing and travel / exploring new places!
