17 years ago when I started on my journey of wellbeing via massage - I never realised that I would still be as fascinated and intrigued today as I was when I started. 

The human body never ceases to amaze me - how incredibly adaptable it is, the amazing feats of athleticism and endurance we can put ourselves through and I am constantly in awe of what our clients get up to. 

The building of both my own practice and this company as a whole has been a hugely rewarding journey and one I hope to continue for many years to come.
