I have been offering massage therapy since 2004 after training in Swedish Massage and then Sports Massge Therapy at Cirencester College.
Through continuing professional development I have trained in Pregnancy Massage, Lymphatic Drainage and Facial Massage, as well as further studies in sports therapy and general massage techniques.
Cirencester Massage is based in Ashton Keynes, and I can offer treatments in Ashton or at your home.
Hockey is my principal sport and I play for the West Masters, LX Club and Cirencester Club.
Most of my treatments develop into a mixture of techniques, in discussion with the client: from relaxation through to deep tissue massage and injury rehabilitation.
Client needs can be generated by routine work based activities; parenting; pregnancy; excess of a non-routine activity, like gardening or exercise; specific physical make-up; injury; or surgery.
My clients range from teenagers through to one lady who is over 100.
I am listed on the FHT Complementary Healthcare Therapist Register, which has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA), under its Accredited Register (AR) scheme.
The PSA is an independent body, accountable to Parliament. The PSA was asked by the Government to set up the scheme in 2012, to offer enhanced protection for anyone seeking health and social care services that are not statutorily regulated.
The scheme was set up under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, to accredit voluntary registers of professionals working in health and social care occupations that are not statutorily regulated.
Accreditation of its register means that the FHT has met the PSA’s demanding standards in terms of governance, education and training, setting standards, managing the register, providing information and dealing with complaints.
Having its register accredited means that the FHT has satisfied the PSA that it meets its high standards. It is a mark of quality.’
The AR quality mark gives extra peace of mind for anyone looking for a complementary healthcare therapist, letting them know that anyone who holds the mark is committed to high standards.
