I am well aware of the impact that sports have on the body and how injuries can affect a performance. I became interested in Sports and Remedial Massage when I was receiving treatment for a riding injury and was amazed at how much it helped me recover.

I decided to pursue this interest in Sports Massage and studied at the Oxford School of Sports Massage (OSSM) where I was awarded the BTEC Diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage.

I work regularly with people from all professions and sporting backgrounds, including actors and horse riders. I currently treat the Queen’s Farriers at Hyde Park Mews and provide Sports Massage to competitors at various equestrian events.
