I have been working in the natural therapy industry for the past eight years. As well as being well qualified, I am a proud member of the Shiatsu Therapy Association of Australia (STAA), which states that ‘STAA accredited therapists are the most highly trained shiatsu therapists in Australia, meeting defined standards in helping people achieve optimum health and wellbeing’.
My interest in natural therapies and living a healthy lifestyle to the full began in my early twenties following an illness. I began to search for ways to bring balance and harmony to my life. I understand the stresses and strains that can arise as we lead our lives in this busy modern day.
I have a university background in biomedical science, which gives me a firm grounding for my work as a shiatsu therapist and I am currently pursuing the challenge of gaining a Masters degree. I’ve also worked extensively in the hospitality industry, which has allowed me to cross paths and interact with people from all walks of life.
My interest in travelling and exploring has also allowed me this privilege. I love getting off the beaten track, be it the trails of Tasmania or streets of West End.
My other great passion is rock climbing. Like life and my work as a shiatsu therapist, I love that it exercises and integrates body and mind.
When it comes to my shiatsu practice, I have many interests — anxiety and stress management, emotional challenges, RSI and other injuries, increasing diminished energy levels and insomnia. I have also completed further studies with a world-renowned shiatsu teacher in the field of pregnancy and birth. I like the variety that each day presents.
I’m passionate about shiatsu and its possibilities, and see myself as a facilitator on your path to better health, wellbeing and happiness.
