Qualified 2014 in Advanced Sports Massage VTCT Level 4 then progressed my skills to include a Diploma in Medical Acupuncture (dry needling), Certificate in Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy, IASTM and Kinesiology Taping for athletes, more recently becoming a Rockdoc.

I am also a Reiki Master/Teacher, meditation instructor and qualified in many holistic therapies. I feel this makes me a very rounded practitioner with a holistic approach when I tailor my treatment plan for patients.
