I assess, treat and offer rehabilitation advice for injuries caused by any lifestyle factor and by looking for the underlying causes of your injury you can achieve long-term improvements in well being.

Having discovered the benefits of exercise myself (I am also a running coach), I am passionate about helping people to live more active lives, free of pain and injuries. I offer treatment for pain whether this seems to have come on suddenly or more gradually (see Reviews).

I qualified as a Soft Tissue Therapist in 2015, with a BTEC Level 5 Professional National Diploma from the prestigious London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) and am a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage. I am also First Aid qualified. I am based in west Southampton on the edge of the New Forest.
