Her treatments can assist in resolving muscle tightness issues, imbalances and also in enhancing recovery post sport.

Currently, when not offering sports massage appointments, she is a Senior Health and Wellbeing Physiologist for a large private healthcare organisation, a role which she has done for 13 years.
