I have been a KMI Structural Integration practitioner since 2012, having become interested in the work of Ida Rolf and Tom Myers whilst working as a Sports Massage Therapist (I qualified with the London School of Sports Massage in 2005) and Personal Trainer (YMCAFit).

With a career in the Health and Fitness Industry with over 15 years experience, I found myself becoming increasingly concerned about the restrictions and movement patterns that were preventing so many people from achieving their goals, or causing them to live with pain. As a competitive marathon runner I also found my body starting to let me down. My desire to help my clients change, and also help myself, led me to Structural Integration.

I attended the Anatomy Trains workshop and was sold. At this time I also found a Pilates School training teachers in the Classical Work of Joseph Pilates – with a Fascial eye. As a ‘movement person’ I knew these were two closely linked paths I needed to take.

So I completed all three parts of the KMI Structural Integration course, and also completed the Full Studio Pilates Instructor Training with the Contrology Pilates Method. I use the manual therapy of KMI and the movement therapy of Pilates to help educate people to free themselves from pain and restriction, and create freedom and ease of movement. My clients are of all ages, and are both sports people and those who just want to be at ease in their bodies.
