Galashiels Scottish Borders

For most of my working life I have been office-based, which never felt quite right.

Following the birth of my youngest child, I became very ill and have undergone numerous bowel and abdominal surgeries. During the many months of recuperation that followed, I received physiotherapy. It was amazing to see the outcomes the physiotherapist had with me and the benefit I gained from their help.

Working with the physiotherapist showed me the benefits of complementary therapies and the profound effect they could have on recovery and wellbeing. I knew this was the area I wished to work in and began my studies.

Whether you are overcoming an illness, injury or just the stress of modern living, massage can help.

I wish to give people time – time for them, time to relax, time to heal and time to be themselves.

Practitioner Diploma in Swedish Massage

I trained with the multi-award winning The Complementary Therapy School (CTS), credit rated by the University of West of Scotland (UWS) to SCQF Level 8 (EQF Level 5). Which is the highest level achievable in the UK and only qualification of its kind.

Over 18 months, in addition to Swedish Massage techniques this course covered anatomy and physiology in-depth, giving me the knowledge to perform effective and target treatments.
