My main areas of interest are exercise prescription, biomechanics, core stability and postural imbalances causing recurrent low back pain. I also have particular interests in treating complex shoulder injuries, sports injuries, and chronic low back pain. In conjunction with Osteopathic techniques, I use Myofascial Release Techniques. These involve the application of slow sustained pressure to minimise bodily restrictions, ease pain and restore range of motion to joints. I also trained in Medical Acupuncture which I find particularly useful in pain management and easing trigger points (tender points).

I am an active individual and have a genuine interest in how the body works, both mechanically and physiologically. When I’m not seeing patients I enjoy keeping healthy & fit in the gym, scuba diving, travelling, food and art.

I qualified as an Osteopath, from The British College of Osteopathic Medicine, in 2005. Prior to that, I was a Cardio-thoracic Intensive Care Nurse working in a busy London teaching hospital. That’s where I first became familiar with Osteopathy, as a patient. Successful treatment fostered an interest which eventually culminated in enrolment on the Osteopathic Medicine degree course.
I currently divide my time between my clinical commitments at several clinics in Greater Manchester and Cheshire, and my UK wide role as a Manual Handling / Ergonomic Consultant. In addition to my role as Resident Osteopath at Granada TV Studios in Manchester, I also provide training and consultancy nationally for ITV and ITN, involved with everything from onset productions (e.g. Coronation Street and Emmerdale) to News.

Travel has been a major influence on my life and I have been fortunate to be able to indulge this interest, taking several year long trips to Africa, Australia, Southeast Asia and India. When I can’t physically escape I like to disappear into a good book or recapture my fading youth at a concert.

As a massage therapist I believe that in addition to the benefit of targeted soft tissue work on a specific injury or problem area of the body, massage can help greatly to facilitate the body’s healing response. Through my experience I have come to believe that massage has great benefits for the immune system, lymphatic and nervous system function and can assist with maintaining overall health and wellbeing. My interest is in understanding my clients as individuals which enables me personalize my treatment and help them most effectively.
I came to massage therapy through a sporting background as an ex- competitive swimmer and beginning my remedial massage training at the Northern Institute in Bury in 2007, I knew it was the career for me. I went on to become a qualified practitioner and I now continue my professional development each year, attending seminars and training events with the professional body, NAMMT.
I am familiar with treating clients of all ages with a wide range of musculo-skeletal problems such as sciatica, post-operative hip and knee, rotator cuff injury, tendonitis, lower back problems, plantar fasciatis, recovery from fracture as well as fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression, lymphodema and complimentary therapy for clients undergoing cancer treatment.
I believe that massage can be used in conjunction with other modalities to improve client’s health and I therefore like to work alongside other practitioners, in this the way the client is well supported.
When I am not working my interests are walking, yoga and pilates. I also support several health charities as an advocate and champion of their campaigns, visiting local schools, producing children’s books and publications in support of their work.
