I completed a two year Dip. Massage and Clinical Sports Therapy at New Zealand Collage of Massage in 2004.
Throughout my studies I worked extensively with top sports teams such as the Auckland Blues Rugby and the Soccer Knights. I continued on to work with NZ Cricket, Waikato NPC and Chief squads and the NZ Maoris, and have been a massage provider for High Performance Sport New Zealand since 2013.
I have experience working in a range of places, including 5 star resorts, gyms and private practise. I have been working and touring with the Rowing New Zealand elite team since 2013. This has provided me with amazing opportunities to travel to some beautiful parts of the world and work along side other health care professionals that are top in their industries.
Providing the best possible service is important to me and I attend industry seminars and training courses annually to learn new techniques.
I enjoy working with active clients from Ironmen and marathon runners to the casual runner or walker.
I believe home care e.g. stretches and strength work and exercises are an integral part of any persons recovery and training. I’m passionate about what I do and look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
I have been a Massage Therapist for over 14 years now, I trained in Auckland at The New Zealand College of Massage where I received a diploma in Therapeutic Massage and a certificate in Applied Body Therapies and Sports Massage.
In this time I have worked in New Zealand, Canada and England with clients ranging from professional snowboarders, iron men, runners and clients with work related and postural issues.
I treat sporting injuries but also help clients with preventative treatment, such as occupational stress related back, neck and shoulder problems. I believe massage is a necessary treatment option, it aides in the recovery of any soft tissue complaint.
I studied at Toi Ohomai and have recently qualified with a Level 5 diploma in Therapeutic Sports treatment. Previous to this I worked 9years in the tourism industry performing relaxation massage, this is where I found my drive to pursue in this industry as I am very passionate about helping others. The work I do involves myofascial and trigger point release, deep tissue massage, and pre, inter, post event treatment. On my weekends I run my own business which is focused purely on sports events to help competing athletes perform at their best by improving range of motion, flexibility, and reducing pain caused my high intensity workouts.
My hobbies I enjoy are gardening, running, swimming, reading, fashion designing, and spending quality time with my family and friends. Most people describe me as bubbly, smiley, observant, kind and caring. I look forward to joining the team and meeting some new clients.

builds a holistic plan targeting more than just the physical symptom of pain.
