Why I do what I do

I am passionate about helping people reduce their aches and pains!

At Urban Body we focus on finding the underlying problem that’s causing the pain or injury rather than just your symptoms. We offer fast and effective treatment and look at how to maintain optimum health for the future. Our clients are happier, feel fitter, younger and regain the zest for life. They have stopped wasting time, ignoring the problem and have followed a step by step plan with lots of guidance, hands on treatment and support. As a result they are in a lot less pain, fitter and happier!

As a Sports Massage Therapist my main aim is to help people improve their wellbeing and achieve their goals. Whether this is to achieve a personal best you’ve been striving for in the gym, or to simply complete everyday tasks pain free.

My treatments involve a combination of techniques including deep tissue massage, soft tissue releases, and active and passive stretching. These treatments can help relieve any aches and pains you may have, improve your recovery time between exercise, and increase your range of movement and flexibility.
