About Me

Having been a competitive swimmer until the end of University and an office worker for over 10 years, I have experienced musculoskeletal conditions caused by both activity and lack of activity. After my own experiences and treatments, I wanted to learn more about soft tissue therapy and sport massage and how I could work with others on their own injuries, aches and pains.

I am passionate about the theory ‘movement is medicine’. My goal is to help others achieve the necessary pain free movements required for their lifestyle; whether it be for competitive sport, postural aches, work related injuries or just the desire to be able to take part in more activities with the family.


I am a fully accredited member of The Institute for Soft Tissue Therapists (ISRM), a professional association representing the interests of soft tissue therapists. My  BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapy qualification ensures extensive knowledge of the human body’s physiology and anatomy, alongside techniques influenced by senior healthcare professionals, all designed to alleviate pain and restore muscular and postural balance.

I have had the opportunity to work closely with triathletes, marathon runners, footballers, swimmers and even motorbike riders, however, please do not think soft tissue therapy is just for those participating in sports. I regularly see office workers, NHS Staff, trade workers and military personnel all who have aches, pains or injuries from their day jobs and lifestyles.

I look forward to meeting you!

What is Soft Tissue Therapy?

Soft Tissue Therapy (STT) is designed for muscular-skeletal conditions caused by injury and lifestyle. Soft tissues include ligaments, tendons, muscles and fascia.

Soft tissue treatment involves the assessment, management, manipulation and rehabilitation of any soft tissue injury that is causing pain and abnormal function. STT encompasses the well-known Sports Massage along with additional advance techniques.

STT is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to prevent or recover from a soft tissue injury. Many soft tissue therapists work with a great range of clients in assisting with preventive treatment and injury recovery.


STT can help;

  • Increase range of movement & flexibility
  • Increase muscle strength
  • Increase & decrease muscle tone and length
  • Reduce pain, stiffness and muscle aches
  • Improves circulation, lymphatic flow & assist in the removal of metabolic waste
  • Breakdown scar tissue & adhesions
  • Provide early detection of potential causes to assist in injury prevention
  • Promote relaxation & mental preparation
  • Correct dysfunctional movement patterns and posture imbalances
  • Accelerate recovery from injury and reduces risk of re-injury
