My journey

I studied Fine Art and Photography and worked for many years in education. After spontaneously booking a massage course whilst on holiday  (Life Impressions Institute from New Mexico), I had stumbled upon a passion I never realised I had. I discovered not only did I gain a huge amount from receiving the massages but I also found giving them a rewarding and positive experience. I was hooked. 

Following my call I undertook a Holistic Massage course with Quantum Metta School of Massage in London. At this point I started my practice as massage therapist. Back to Body was born.

Since then I  ​have always striven to deepen my knowledge of human body and discover different massage techniques and styles. This has included studying   Deep Tissue, Thai Yoga Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Pregnancy Massage and Structural Fascial Bodywork. 

One of my greatest discoveries was the power of using hot lava stones to enhance massage sessions. I have studied Hot Stone Massage Fusion at the Jing Institute of Advanced Massage Training in Brighton.


Currently I am based in London and offer massage to individual clients in Shoreditch and I  also have a number of corporate clients including Nuffield Health, Banque Nationale de Paris Paribas, Marylebone and Barclays, Canary Wharf.
