My approach

My approach incorporates the principles of person-centred care: treating all clients with dignity and respect and working with them to improve their quality of life and quality of work.

I am friendly, polite and professional – able to put people at ease and helping them to become more receptive to the therapeutic benefits of massage.

I focus on the individual needs of each client and delivering the right outcomes for them.

I believe in wellbeing that works; I focus on what delivers results and the science behind it.

Massage is more than just a ‘nice to have’.  It has practical, therapeutic value and can make a simple yet meaningful difference, without being challenging.

I draw on a versatile and evolving repertoire of techniques, regularly researching and reviewing my approach to ensure my clients benefit from the latest thinking and best practice.

Through a series of different roles in dynamic environments, looking after unique and complex stakeholder groups, I have acquired knowledge and experience and developed strong interpersonal confidence and resilience.

I have been trusted by clients, colleagues and personnel to deliver results and manage sensitive issues with care.

My professional background gives me valuable real-world insight.  I have first-hand familiarity with the physical and psychological risks to wellbeing that accumulate in the workplace.

Proactive focus on employee wellbeing sits at the heart of any modern and enlightened approach to developing workplace culture.

Workplace massage can help to combat the risks of elevated stress whilst also helping to bring relief from headaches, discomfort and pain.

Beyond the immediate benefits, employee perceptions that their employer values them and is invested in their wellbeing can make a massive difference to engagement and performance.

I am proud to be part of the positive journey that many employers have chosen, and to be helping them achieve their vision of a better workplace.

My professional background

My journey to Equilibria Massage began in the hair and beauty salons of Salisbury and London, which included designing a head massage routine and training junior staff to use it.

An increasing focus on higher levels of responsibility and ambition to broaden my business experience led me through a series of engaging roles across several different international industries including freight forwarding, defence services and public services.

By the time I made my move from management to motherhood, my career had just about prepared me for that new and exciting challenge.  When not focused on building and managing a family, I divided my time between a degree in astrophysics and planning my future career.

In my planning, four clear themes emerged for ‘what’ I should do: working with people to help improve their quality of life; practical solutions to make a meaningful difference; a focus on the real challenges that real people face every day; and the chance to contribute to a better world of work, life and balance.

The last piece in the puzzle gave me the ‘how’: massage has always come naturally to me, and I have always practiced for the benefit of those around me, even when engaged elsewhere professionally.  I find helping people through massage to be a fulfilling and therapeutic experience and enjoy seeing the positive impact on the organisations I work with and my individual clients.
