Having worked in western health care for a decade I began to practise the yoga and massage I had learned for personal development with the public. I've now studied in the UK (Swedish massage), India (Yoga, Massage and Ayurvedic medicine) and Thailand (Thai massage).
I love working in mental health and social care settings and now I'm qualifying as an Integrative Therapist registered with the British Association for Counselling.
I'm a long term student of Shri Kali Ashram and these studies in the traditional view of the world, health, people and existence permeate everything I practise. This view means people to me are innately whole and blissful but might need a little help to reset. I favour the systems view over a mechanistic one. In practical terms means if you come with a headache - I will massage your head but I might also massage your hands and feet.
