I studied a Diploma of Therapeutic Massage and Diploma of Body Therapies in sports and energy, at the New Zealand College of Massage in 1997. Since then I have continued to study bodywork including neuromuscular therapy. I have been a registered massage therapist (RMT) with Massage New Zealand (MNZ) since 2000. I was on the MNZ executive for 3 years. I have also recently completed a Bachelor of Natural Medicine from South Pacific College of Natural Medicine (SPCNM). I am also working as a learning assistant in the Paua clinic at SPCNM in 2021.
I am a specialist in OOS prevention, management and maintenance. Soft tissue therapy is a fundamental tool in the prevention of OOS. It is most effective if received regularly to maintain healthy and relaxed neck and shoulders. It is an essential tool to help relieve pain; be it headaches, shoulder, forearm or hand pain. Interest areas within naturopathy include gut health, mental health & a whole food diet.
My treatments incorporate naturopathy & soft tissue work including; trigger point therapy, myo-fascial release, deep tissue massage, remedial massage, postural assessment, stretching, reflexology or relaxation.
Naturopathy includes nutritional advice, herbal medicine & lifestyle advice. Each session is tailored to the individual needs of the client. Within my practice, I have worked with a range of clients from NZ level athletes, triathletes, Super 15 teams; including the Blues, the All Blacks, visiting NRL teams to corporate clients. I worked within the NZ Sports Academy framework (now High Performance Sport NZ) for 10 years.
I enjoy the educational role of massage, assisting people to change old postures & habits creating healthier patterns.
