I’ve always been interested in health and well-being, as my grandfather is a healer and my mother a professional therapist, but my introduction to Tui Na started just after I had left school. Due to a lack of direction, I was not in the best place. I started seeing a therapist who uses Chinese medicine in her treatments and with her help was able to get myself back to feeling really good. Going to the gym and practising yoga also had their part to play, and are still important to me to help me keep myself fit and healthy.

I soon realised that I wanted to try and help people as I had been helped, so I trained as a gym instructor and personal trainer. Although this was an area that I felt I could make a differenece and support people in making positive changes, there was something missing. I then thought back to how Chinese medicine had helped me in the past, and decided I wanted to train as a Tui Na practitioner.

Tui Na really ‘speaks’ to me, as it utilises the principles of anatomy and the physical body which I was already trained in, yet has an added dimension of helping to clear energy pathways in the body. It has been described as acupuncture without the needles and it feels like a great massage without having to take any clothes off, but most importantly has the added benefit of clearing energy channels to bring improvement to overall health and well-being.
