I have been an MTI qualified massage therapist for 5 years and my enthusiasm for massage and body work continues to grow and grow. I was lucky enough to join the BCMB teaching team in 2010 and really love my work of supporting the students as they learn their new massage skills.
I feels that it is such a wonderful honour to work with people through touch. The most important thing for me in my massage practise is to be able to adapt the session to meet the clients needs on that particular day. I have a wide range of practice and am experienced in both remedial, deep tissue, mobilisation and massage for relaxation and to support a healthy immune system. I believes it is vital to be constantly open to learning therefore I have regular clinical supervision and undertake training in new areas to extend and develop my practice on an ongoing’ basis. I love movement, dance and walking and am an ‘ecstatic awakening dance teacher. I believe that through movement, breath and touch people can feel re connected with the potential for life to be joyful.
It is important to me that my clients feel safe, met and nurtured.
Available: Tuesday 12pm – 8pm

My love of massage developed through personal experience of its benefits, especially with respect to a long term back condition. Through taking an active interest in my own condition I learnt a great deal and realised I had a further interest and aptitude for understanding the body. This led me to try some introductory courses of massage and then to gain a full professional qualification: The Massage Training Institute (MTI) Professional Diploma in Holistic Massage & Bodywork.
Through this qualification I gained a good knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology. As well as knowledge of many different massage techniques and how best to apply them.
To ensure I keep up to date with current best practice – and because I enjoy it – I regularly attend advanced courses and am a registered practitioner with the MTI and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). With this strong background of knowledge I now help others to enjoy the great relaxation and health benefits of massage.
In addition to this I am now a tutor on the Professional Training Course with Bristol College of Massage & Bodywork and Co-facilitator of Bath Practitioner Group (BPG).
Available: Mondays 2:00pm to 6:00pm

While I have never been an athlete, movement and developing an awareness of the physical in relation to wellbeing and balance has always been key for me. I moved from the sports of my youth to martial arts and mobility training in adulthood.
My particular focus for the last 20 years has been on studying the connection between mind and body, and how a harmony between them can be created that goes beyond what we normally think possible. Since becoming a professional body-worker and massage therapist in 2012 I am able to let these experiences flow into my work.
I am passionate about massage therapy because it is unique in that it gives us immediate access to positively enhance our body perception and body sensitivity, while creating space for deeper relaxation and rejuvenation. By focusing on our inner experience we can foster a deeper connection with our body, helping us to recognize current patterns and making change a more readily available option.
Having overcome two different types of back injuries in the past with the help of manual therapy and movement has given me an insight into how recovery from pain can be achieved. It has informed my own remedial and therapeutic approach and supports me in developing successful strategies for my clients.
