I am a Canadian massage therapist on a two year visa to New Zealand, and am thrilled to be a part of this beautiful community.

My first experience with massage and bodywork occurred in 2013 by recommendation from a friend and I was immediately hooked on the amazing physical and psychological benefits. I began training in massage and various other modalities as a side hobby, but decided to shift into the career full time and completed my massage training in 2016.

I have always held a keen interest in the connection between mind and body, so decided to specialise in the biodynamic form of craniosacral therapy – a modality that helps clients process held tension in the body from emotions and life events. I graduated in 2019 after more than two years of course work and case studies. It has been a fascinating road of discovery, and I am continuously amazed by the intelligence and resilience held within the body. The training has heavily influenced my massage practice, and I always operate from a place of listening and responding to subtle body cues.

I look forward to meeting and working with you to meet your health goals.
