It’s very rewarding for me to be able to improve your wellbeing. I keep my qualifications current and relevant and I get to stay on top of my professional development as a regular volunteer at a local NHS Hospital. I love my career change, I love being able to help, simply put – I just love this job!
I come from a military background, I always prided myself on being as healthy and fit as I could be. My military training and subsequent years deployment meant that I also became better organised, efficient, reliable, a better listener and also thorough in my approach to tasks. I knew that to approach a problem from only one perspective could be very limiting and even damaging in the long run.
It is because of this that when I needed a change of career after my children were born I thoroughly researched my options. I had always thought I would re-train in a health field when I eventually left the forces, but when the baby blues and body exhaustion took me by surprise – I couldn’t decide which was more important to me – a healthy body or a healthy mind. It was while surfing for ideas and courses that I came across the phrase ‘Holistic Massage Therapist’ – I didn’t know what it meant to be honest – but I was intrigued enough to look it up.
It turns out a Holistic Massage Therapist addresses the entire body as a whole through massage, not just concentrating on the physical body, the range of massage techniques also help to address our mental and emotional body. It felt like a no-brainer – I felt destined to be a Holistic Massage Therapist! When you visit me you will discover a relaxing environment and enjoy a reliable, organised, friendly service. I have a wealth of professional experience and am proud to be a Holistic Massage Therapist.
Helping you ‘be more you’ is my aim, I love every minute of what I do. I also listen to my clients needs – so much so I added nutritional therapy to my skillset to further help balance both body and mind, then I took my own personal fitness up a notch, qualifying as a Team Beachbody Coach.
I also focus on fitness in the community now and am one of the coaches for Torpoint Athletics Juniors, they’re a lovely group of kids, so Cornish Massage sponsors one of their kit’s too!
As of 2022, I have introduced a Wellbeing Cafe event for our community and we aim to run these about every 8 to 12 weeks apart, for more details head to our Wellbeing Events page.
I provide an array of treatments for people experiencing stress, tension, pain; people working long hours in the same position or on their feet all day; pregnancy massage; relieve muscle tension, muscle strain, aid muscular-recovery in sports professionals and enthusiastic runners, gym goers, weight-lifters, rugby players, footballers looking after their body in recovery, pre and post event, as well as to maintain. And for those of you who have gallantly signed up to a marathon or charity walk for the first time – where your body knows not what it has been signed up for – I can help you prepare for that too!
Used in combination the services I offer are especially useful for those of us who are in recovery from serious illness, have ongoing health issues as well as stress, pain and exhaustion.
