About me

I have been a clinical massage & Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapist since 2004, specialising in all types of post-surgical recovery and disorders of the lymphatic system. Because the lymphatic system has so many roles in the body, lymphatic disorders range from primary or secondary lymphoedema and lipoedema to autoimmune conditions. They also include chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, post viral syndromes and other acquired infections.

I am highly skilled, empathic and committed to delivering exemplary care for my patients. I work closely with your doctor, consultant or surgeon to speed your recovery or to stabilise and maintain your current condition. I have extensive experience with complex cases and from many types of short & long-term surgical recovery; oncology, orthopaedics, reconstructive and cosmetic. Alongside my private practice, I have always studied and worked within different clinical environments. From 2004-2008, I delivered therapies for an HIV charity, where I became a trustee and delivered HIV awareness training. I also worked for a local cancer charity. From 2008-2011, I was a complementary therapist in Cancer Services at University College London hospital (UCLH), while studying a BSc (Hons) Health Sciences; remedial massage & neuromuscular therapy. I then studied an MSc in Complementary Medicine, which was completed in 2015, while working as a clinical massage therapist for Horder Healthcare, who specialise in Orthopaedics. I was invited to present a poster of my dissertation on lymphoedema management at the British Lymphology Society (BLS) conference in 2015. In the last few years, I have developed and teach a method of kinesiology taping to speed post-surgical recovery. I am a member of MLDuk and presented the ‘Lymphascial’ method at their 2018 conference. I will be delivering a taping workshop at the 2019 conference.
