I have lived and worked in St. Ives since 2001, with my husband and two children, working locally as a swim teacher, primary school teacher and family support worker. In each role a high level of confidentiality and care is essential, which I aim to feed into my work as a therapist. Sport has been embedded in family life, including maintaining a healthy body with diet, sleep and therapies. Through offering Swedish and Sports Massage Therapy I believe that I can pass on my knowledge of the body and the effects activities have on it to others, via a quality service.
