Massage Therapy & Positive Neuroplasticity

RMT (Level 5), ITEC Dip. Anatomy, Physiology and Body Massage; ITEC Cert Indian Head Massage, Cert. Psychology and Dip. Herbal Studies. Biomedical science BBMedSc (Hons).

I’m passionate about sharing ways to use our minds to develop greater inner strengths and resources and I’m whole-heartedly committed to offering effective support to my clients.

Following my science degree, I trained in massage therapy and initiated a new massage practice within a medical clinic and sports facility in Gibraltar. I focused on supporting people with relaxation, reducing anxiety, helping with injuries and offering pain relief and worked in alignment with individual needs. I developed a strong reputation as someone able to focus on areas of tension with practical and intuitive wisdom to aid healing. I also wrote articles for the local Insight Magazine on health-related topics.

I have been in New Zealand for over 12 years and from a strong desire to impact health and well-being have worked in leadership positions enabling health teams to provide vital support to those in need. Much of this work has been in the mental health field which has given me a holistic view of people’s needs for balance, both physically and mentally. I am delighted to utilise this expertise and offer holistic treatments for healing and well-being at Absolute Therapy.
