Hello everyone and a warm welcome to my page!
I am dedicated to helping others to relax, gain a sense of inner-peace and reduce stress in addition to promoting good well-being, something that massage helps to achieve. Massage has become a passion of mine that has grown over time, it allows me to use the qualifications, skills, knowledge, awareness and experience gathered from my personal journey, to pass on to others.
So, what is massage? Massage is the manipulation of soft tissues for therapeutic purposes and its history dates back thousands of years. Human touch is a powerful healing tool and massage is an instinct that we use naturally, often without conscious awareness, that massage is what we are doing. For instance. knocking ourselves and reaching to rub it better. Massage releases feel-good endorphins that produce a calming effect on our peripheral nervous system and, the physical act of massage speeds up the elimination of toxins from the body, releases muscular tension and promotes many positive physical and psychological benefits.
I am a fully qualified mobile massage therapist and accredited member of the FHT working on a freelance basis within the Essex region; fully insured and DBS checked. Between 2003 and 2005 I studied a level 3 BTEC Diploma in Beauty Therapy Sciences where I had the opportunity to gain some experience of the industry.
Life then lead me in a different direction before I chose to specialise in massage therapy through a compelling desire to help others to feel good. In 2016 I qualified in Indian Head massage which inspired me to embark on the journey leading to founding Graceful Ki. More recently, I completed my studies with Escape Training in 2017 and gained the ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Massage, Anatomy and Physiology. Since completing my studies and qualifying, I’ve continued my professional development by qualifying in other types of massage such as ‘Lomi Lomi’ (Hawaiian) and Pre-Blended Aromatherapy.
