I first decided to do a course in massage after spending time with a family member who was terribly ill, through massaging her hands and feet while she was in the hospital, I was able to witness a positive change. The measurable change was the slowing of her heart rate, the increase in oxygen but most importantly the peace and comfort it brought her.
I pursued my studies at the NZ College of Massage completing my Diploma in Health Science – Therapeutic massage (Level 6) in 2015. It was here I really found my passion in the study of the human body and all it can do – achieve, adapt and maintain. Its many strengths and weaknesses, and how as busy people we neglect it. We put ourselves and our well-being at the bottom of our priority list.
I believe through massage we can help reset the body at a cellular level to not only address muscular issues but also help identify a process of self-care and a greater awareness of being kind to ourselves and reconnecting to that. I work with a holistic approach and listen to my clients about they need and what has brought them to see me along with their desired outcome.
