I was a Registered General Nurse for 23 years, the last 10 years of which as a Theatre Nurse. I became disillusioned with the NHS and the lack of holistic care, that had been there when I first became a Nurse.
In 1999 I started a Beauty Therapy Course and then various Complementary Therapy courses including basic Swedish Massage. I opened a Salon in Hereford in 2001 and have been striving ever since to bring Complementary therapies to a wider audience, to show how they can help to improve and maintain health and well being.
However, the more massage I was doing, the more I was injuring myself. I was getting to the stage where I might have to give up massaging altogether, a prospect I wasn’t looking forward to. I began my journey of discovery of NO HANDS Massage in 2013.
I haven’t looked back since. In fact in November 2016 I became a NO HANDS Master! I have over the years offered support sessions to other therapists as a Supervising Master, and offered courses in NO HANDS massage as an Independent Instructor. Currently I am focusing on my work with clients using Trauma Discharge Therapy and Transformational Touch Therapy to help them transform their lives and build resilience.
Having now sold my beauty salon I will be offering courses again in 2022 in Hereford and am also a Company trainer for NO HANDS, so you will see me at larger company events throughout the year.
I am fully qualified and insured to offer the public professional Massage treatment and to run courses.
I trade under the name of Mercia Massage Clinic at Sutton St Nicholas, Hereford.
I have a long interest in all natural approaches to health and self healing. I am very passionate about touch and particularly NO HANDS Massage. This means I “walk the talk” of Massage therapy and get regular monthly treatments myself! These treatments enable me, to be me.
Other interests away from massage are reading, particularly historical novels, and being with my partner, daughter and my cats! Oh and over the various lockdowns I have gained a love of gardening! Growing my own veg is very therapeutic.
I believe that regular Massage is absolutely essential for a healthy, happy and successful life, which is why I make sure I get my own regular treatments every month. By having treatments myself it does mean that I can talk from the heart about them and share my experiences if people want to know. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you will experience the same things, as we are all individuals.
