I have been doing massage since 2006. I studied massage at the SA Health Education Centre for 2½ years to achieve both my diplomas in Remedial Massage and in Polarity Therapy. Besides offering relaxation, deep tissue & trigger point massages, I also do Reiki.
I moved to Australia from Scotland in 2004 with my husband Greg and our son Reiss. Outside of work I love to socialise with my friends and family. I love to sing, dance and have fun. I like to maintain my health by having regular massage & chiropractic and also do meditation and yoga.
