At 16, I started a career in Electrical Engineering as an apprentice at British Steel Corporation in Pontypool. After 38 years in engineering with many changes in the working environment, I decide a change of employment was required to reduce my stress, tension, anxiety and depression. Therefore, I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy.

I had taken up training in massage after being shown by a physiotherapist how to relieve my facial muscle pain. My initial course was Indian head massage therapy. This course was followed by courses in on-site seated massage, sports massage and anatomy, physiology and pathology.

I put these massage modules into practice by providing a mobile massage therapy service with a clinic set up in Cwmbran. I then diversified, widening my scope with an aromatherapy massage therapy course.



After eighteen months, I moved my clinic to Torfaen Business Centre, New Inn, so I could expand with a waiting room, a treatment room, easy access and parking for my clients.

With the new clinic, my next goal was to gain a higher level proficiency in massage therapy and to be able to provide therapy to elite athletes as well as use advanced treatment techniques to treat and rehabilitate a wide range of conditions. I went on to achieve a Level 4 Sports Massage Therapy qualification.

After a break in training and focusing on building my business, I returned to training and undertook a course in remedial massage. Remedial massage is effective to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness.

Where do I see my future going? My present goal is to achieve a Level 5 Clinical Massage Therapy qualification and to expand my business even further.
