About

My interest in bodywork therapies developed in response to effective treatment of my own muscular injuries, suffered whilst playing rugby. This was enhanced by the study of anatomy and physiology during my previous work as a fitness instructor. My philosophy and approach is rooted in ancient eastern principles of holistic healing, which focus on restoring balance and harmony to the body’s systems.

I trained at the London College of Massage, the London School of Sports Massage and the Academy of Oriental Medicine. I am certified in Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage, Tui Na, Acupuncture & Moxibustion and Tao Yin and have over 20 years’ experience in providing massage and body therapy treatments.

In addition to working as a masseur on the Caribbean Princess Cruise Lines and having my own successful practice in Paphos, Cyprus, I have worked as a masseur at the Britain’s Strongest Man competition, the London Marathon and as a mobile bodyworker at various top London hotels.

I also spent a year at Kunyu Mountain Shaolin Martial Arts Academy in China and am a fully qualified Tai-Chi instructor.

Massage therapy involves the rubbing and kneading of soft tissues and muscles in the body to promote healing and enhance a person’s health and well-being. It is thought the term ‘massage’ originates from the Greek word, ‘Massein’ meaning ‘to knead’. It is also linked to the Arabic word, ‘mash’ which means to ‘press softly’. Both aptly describe the treatment. There are more than 250 variations of massage and bodywork therapies used today. Despite the differences between each modality, all of them involve touch and manipulation techniques to move muscles and body tissue. The aim is to relieve stress, tension, pain, and a whole host of other ailments.
