Emma knew a career as a Remedial Massage Therapist would fulfil her dreams of helping people in a hands on role. After 15 years as a Travel Agent, the time was right for a change, and she still wanted to be in a position to use her caring & friendly nature to help people. With Emma's assistance her clients will feel a reduction in pain, stress & tension, and will have increased mobility.
She enjoys using her varied massage skills to treat her client’s symptoms as well as help educate them on ways they can include stretching in their routine to continue to improve their treatment goals. She can offer a tailored treatment plan for stress relief, pain management, pregnancy, chronic injuries and illnesses.
She is a current member of AAMT and will be undertaking further studies in Myotherapy in 2020 to offer even more treatment options to her clients in future.
When Emma isn't working you'll find her travelling, pottering in her veggie garden or upstairs enjoying some cheese & wine and cuddling up to her 3 fur-children.
