I started my holistic massage journey back in 2012, having always been really interested in massage and the effect this can have on the body and the mind. I enrolled on an Indian Head Massage course which I completed and qualified, I then went on to Swedish/Remedial Massage, then Hot Stone Massage and finally CIBTAC Diploma in Body Massage.
When my mum became ill, sadly due to the nature of her illnesses she couldn’t really have massage even the lightest of touch was too much for her; however, she loved me placing my hands on her knees so that she could feel the heat and this relaxed her. When my mum passed in 2014 I continued to study and in 2016 I moved to the Western Isles where I continued my learning and training in massage with the Glasgow School of Massage completing Oncology Massage and then Abdominal and Deep Colon Massage (a really good treatment for chronic constipation).
After completing the Oncology Massage, I wanted to be able to give something back in memory of my mum, which was when I contacted Helen at WICCI to offer my services. I have now also learnt Manual Lymphatic Drainage which is particular beneficial for many conditions not least pre-post-surgery.
I feel very fortunate and privileged to be able to offer oncology massage to clients at WICCI allowing them the chance to be able to ‘switch off’ even if it is only during their massage treatment
I started Westside Holistic Massage in 2017 and can offer home treatments or mobile. I can now also offer warm bamboo and acupressure facial treatments.
