My Background

Before I moved to Leeds I worked as a medical assistant in a busy general practice in Germany. In my spare time, I enjoyed cycling,  swimming, horse-riding (especially long and relaxed hacks), and walking my dog across the beautiful countryside called "Hunsrück" where I grew up.

I was also part of the DLRG (German lifeguard team) and enjoyed many Summer days at our natural outdoor swimming pool, Scuba diving with my friends in German reservoirs, or sometimes in the Mediterranean Sea.

As part of my personal development, I completed a non-medical practitioner course, trained in nutrition counseling, took part in Homoeopathy courses, and completed a foundation course in Craniosacral Therapy with the vision to one day, offer complementary treatments from my own non-medical practitioner practice. In 2006 I relocated to the UK.

My Massage Journey

I decided to make the best use of my existing knowledge and skills and signed up for a part-time evening course at the White Rose College of Health & Beauty. I qualified as Complementary Therapist (ITEC Level 3 Diploma) in 2011. In 2013 I started my NO HANDS ® Massage training and qualified as NO HANDS Therapist in 2015. 

My EMMETT journey began in 2016 and I qualified as Advanced EMMETT Practitioner in 2019. I am also a qualified EMM-Tech Tutor, allowing me to run short courses in Easy Muscle Management with selected moves from the EMMETT Technique Practitioner course.

As part of my professional development, I have also attended training courses in Deep Tissue Massage, Seated Acupressure (Chair) Massage, Indian Head Massage, Sports Massage (Level 4),  Oncology Massage, MSTR Scar Tissue Release, Pregnancy Massage, and Life Coaching, allowing me to offer a wide selection of different treatment styles and massage techniques to suit individual needs and requirements.

As a Massage Professional, I enjoy being able to assist my clients in their massage journeys in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), your safety and comfort is my primary concern and I work to the highest clinical standards.
