In my massage practice I aim to support the physical and mental health of my clients through all stages and ups and downs of life. I use a mix of Remedial/Clinical/Therapeutic Massage and Relaxation Massage techniques to promote recovery and wellness, it is very much a two-way negotiated process.
I have a background of working as a social worker in community mental health, later working at home as caregiver for my kids and as support staff in a local school.
I re-trained in massage ten years ago and first ran a practice at home followed by two years working in Porirua.
I returned to full-time study at the NZ College of Massage a few years ago to up-skill and to commit to this career pathway. It was challenging and very rewarding and my professional development continues.
I enjoy the friendly, positive, community vibe at Revolve Fitness and am happy to be based in Tawa where I also live.
Outside work I volunteer for the international movement of Initiatives of Change https://iofc.org and Creators of Peace https://www.creatorsofpeace.org
Hobbies such as my perma-culture garden, reading, walking and an occasional tramp alongside time with yoga buddies, family and friends all keep me going!
