Sports Massage Therapist
I qualified in 2015 with MTI as a Massage therapist
I know from professional and personal experience how frustrating and debilitating pain is from chronic tension, tightness and injury can be. From personally working 12 hour shifts in a physically demanding job to working as a rehabilitation assistant for Southend borough council witnessing first-hand what affect this can have on peoples' lives.
I was influenced by undergoing acupuncture and shiatsu manipulative therapy treatment for a series of reoccurring health problems. With the effectiveness of this treatment it made me realise that although pain and illness is common you don't have to just put up with it!!
This encouraged me to want to help people with reoccurring pain and health issues.
So what better way than deep tissue sports massage!
"Seeing how a lot of the health conditions and problems I came across as a rehab assistant as well as my own, I feel could have been prevented. I wanted to start using massage in a tailor-made way to ensure clients were getting the most effective treatment on their areas of pain and tension in a way that isn't detrimental but beneficial!"
Focusing on the realisation of looking after the body I also began the practice of yoga in 2015!
"I was experiencing health problems from the age of 19 –22 then experienced problems with my lower back leading from physically demanding jobs which then caused severe Sciatic pain. I couldn't help but think if this is how I feel now how am I going to feel when I'm 80! it really made me realise that we have one body and we need to take care of it."
With the knowledge of yoga postures and stretches I am happy to advise clients on how to incorporate this into their aftercare.
Not to forget I am also a newbie aerial silks artist!
I graduated with an Integrative Masters degree from the European school of Osteopathy in 2014. I have always been keen in helping others and having received Osteopathic treatments as a child and following sports injuries, Osteopathy was for me the best filing profession. Since I graduated, I practiced as Osteopath in Kent for three years in three different Osteopathic clinics. I have now relocated to Southend-On-Sea and have been building my Osteopathic clinic since March 2017.
As a fully qualified and registered Osteopath, I use osteopathic techniques such as manipulations, articulations, soft tissue massage and stretching, as well as cranial osteopathic treatments, Kinesiology taping and Dry needling in order to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal and health problems with the aim of helping recovery and preventing further occurrences. I provide treatment and care for people of all ages from newborns to the elderly, as well as pregnant women, sports people, athletes, office and manual workers.
I am also a sport and exercise nutritional advisor and offer sport nutrition consultations (See "Sport nutrition" in the menu section)
I can offer consultations in both French and English.
To satisfy the code of ethics and standards, I am fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOSC) and fully insured with the institute of Osteopathy. By law, I am also committed to continuing professional development.
