I've been a full-time Cardiac Physiologist for the last 17 years in both the UK and Australia. I have a BSC joint honours in Sport and Material science (university of Birmingham) and a BSc Honours in Clinical Physiology (specialising in Cardiology) (College of Westminster affiliated to Middlesex University).
As an active child I practiced and competed at gymnastics and trampolining from eight years old to twenty turning to triathlon and running in particular, competing at all distances up to Ironman and Marathon including finishing 2nd in the Sydney Marathon in 2 hours 50 minutes.
I’ve practiced yoga on a regular basis for the last 13 years and love to spend time travelling, taking photographs I generally keep very fit, active and strong.
Because of my athletic lifestyle and as a mother mixing a busy job and sporting life I have come to understand how massage and physiotherapy treatments have been of huge benefit to myself from numerous and on-going massage /physiotherapy treatments. My clients frequently feed this back to me.
In January 2011 I completed level 1 basic Swedish massage (20 hours attendance), and in February 2011 level 2 Trigger point massage (20 hours attendance) with Gay Riches in Perth West Australia. I undertook a One day work shop at Health Academics in April 2012. At the end of 2012 I spent two weeks at soul and surf in India and spent some time working with the resident masseur swapping massages and exchanging techniques. Inspired by this I trip I decided to get a formal certificate in massage and completed a VTCT level 3 diploma in Anatomy and Physiology and a VTCT level 3 diploma in Massage. I have a certificate in deep tissue massage (6 hours training), and a certificate in Thai massage (6 hours training). In 2017 I qualifies with ITEC sports massage level 3.
I worked in Fitness first Gym as a masseuse one day a week for 18 months and then returned to Soul and Surf in Kerala, India and covered their full time masseuse whilst on leave for two weeks in 2012.
