Stay fit and Injury free

As a keen but relatively slow runner, I’ve always believed in the positive effects of massage. I have completed 10 marathons, numerous half marathons and 10k events. As well as taking part in cycling and multi-disciplinary events in this country and abroad. This highlighted how massage can be a significant component of any training and key both in recovery and injury prevention.

In 2016 I decided to return to university to become an effective massage therapist.

Under the tutorage of The Western School of Massage at Glasgow Caledonian University, I studied Diplomas in Swedish massage, Remedial and Sport massage and completed a series of eight advanced workshops.

Over the same period I qualified in Hot Stone massage, Vacuum Cupping and Kinesiology taping.

To complement these skills I am an advanced practitioner in Mindfulness and Neuro Linguistic Programming.

This year has been a busy one with me finally settling into my new clinic at home in Renfrew.

In August I was delighted to become the massage therapist to Kilmarnock Football club's first team. working with a fantastic group of professional footballers has been a great learning curve. 

This year I have also qualified in Medical Acupuncture. Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling) involves inserting fine needles for a therapeutic effect. Overall, it is an adaptation of the Chinese method just using modern up-to-date knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Medical Acupuncturists no longer conform to the notion of Ying and Yang. However, we do aim to create homeostasis within the body
