What I can do for you

Rolfing

Lasting postural change is possible through re-education of your body’s fascia. Release tension and fix old aches and pains by realigning your body.

Where massage works with the muscles to provide temporary relief, Rolfing works with the fascia that hold and direct the muscles to effect lasting change in the body. A freer body naturally improves your confidence and state of mind. Learn more about Rolfing.

Personal Training

Whether you want to lose weight and tone up, or become fitter and stronger, personal training can help.

My approach to personal training draws on my years of experience as a physical therapist with a holistic knowledge of the human body. I will design a personal programme that works with your unique physical characteristics and goals.

Pilates

Pilates can improve core strength and flexibility, resulting in better postural alignment and physical functioning. I am a qualified Pilates trainer.

Now well-known worldwide as an effective exercise system, Pilates was developed over a century ago. It uses slow and deliberate movements, synchronised with the breath.
