August 2020
After having several months off due to the pandemic, I have now returned to my practice at the Ola Centre. I have made a few changes to the way I work to keep everyone safe, and I will email all details of these changes out on request, and when anyone books a new appointment. One major change is that I am capping all my appointment times to 75 mins or less for now, and I am not currently offering any face massage. I have updated all the details on my Treatments page to show what is available.

September 2018
I have recently joined the London School of Massage team as a lecturer in Ayurveda Massage Therapy.

August 2018
After practicing at the Ola Centre for four years, I now have my own private treatment room. Working from my own space is allowing me to be much more flexible with my working hours, and it is wonderful to be able to invite people into the same warm and nurturing environment every time they come for a treatment.

See below for some comments from my clients.
