‘I am a very active person, I have done karate since I was 7 years old and reached my black belt at the age of 14, I still train now on a regular basis to keep my fitness levels up and because I’m still passionate about this sport.
My primary aim is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissue during our everyday lives, and from the demands of physical activity. I will work with the client’s individual needs to help overcome pain and dysfunction.
