“It all began when I watched a physiotherapist use massage during a treatment and was suitably impressed with the results. Being of a curious nature, I had to find out more. After taking a basic massage course in 2004 at a local college, I was well and truly hooked. There had to be more to learn I was sure, and indeed there was.
After taking a Sports Massage Diploma I signed up for the Meridian Massage Practitioner Diploma. It presented me with a real big learning curve about ‘human beings’ and ‘being human’. The opportunity to develop technically as a practitioner (integrating methods from previous training) and self-development which enhances therapeutic relationships was exciting and invaluable. I feel very privilege to have discovered an occupation that continues to challenge and excite.
Loving my profession, I joined the original teaching team as an assistant tutor back in 2008. In 2010 I became a fully qualified tutor and soon after in 2012 a vocational assessor. In 2014 I created the Holistic Sports and Remedial Massage course accredited by FHT and MTI. The satisfaction of sharing my skills with students is immeasurable, as is the privilege of sharing their learning journey and achievements.”
