I am a holistic therapist. What this means for you as my client, is that I will be working with you as whole rather than solely focusing on the part of your body that is causing discomfort. I am a trained and experienced masseuse, spiritual healer, yoga teacher and personal trainer; I therefore often use my broad skill set to treat and advise after care for clients. I spent 6 months in India and Sri-Lanka living with a yogi and a Buddhist monk training yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and energetic healing. I then spent a further 6 months in Thailand learning massage, the wisdom learnt within this year paved the foundations rooted in local customs and heritage for my practice. Upon my return to the UK I invested 2yrs into professional qualifications within my chosen fields.
Over time I became increasingly unhappy, so I decided to quit my job, sell my car and set off on my travels to find my purpose. Away from the hustle and bustle of daily life I had time to heal and reflect, I underwent strict detoxing routines, learned meditation and embraced a strict vegan diet. The reactions were severe at first as my body detoxed years of not being in touch with my inner self and chasing a dream that was never my own, but rather a superimposed reality created by society and the financial demands of a single mother.
As I began to heal, the memories of my grandmother started to emerge and with them a surge of freedom, love, relief and overwhelming release of the negativity I had been holding on to for so many years. My grandmother was a Shamanic healer and very well known in our small town in Colombia. Since the young age of 3 she trained me in the art of healing. Unfortunately as I moved to the UK she passed away and a lot of her teachings started to fade with time within the demands of modern life and the very different pace of British life as a single mother.
My journey is always in constant, evolutionary and fluid motion, I can promise a genuine love for healing, a desire for unity and a passion for introducing a more natural way of healing that does not involve heavy toxic inducing drugs, but rather employs a gentle approach that looks at all aspects of mind, body and soul to ignite the body’s natural healing abilities. I am passionate about my chosen path and always give 100%. My treatments almost always have after care instructions and I review clients’ progress frequently to assess their development. My future projects include group healing sessions, workshops, herbalism, naturopathy and a PhD in natural medicine.

His passion for manual therapy came after an upcoming knee surgery that lead him to take a year out of sports and education to focus on gaining experience in a rewarding industry that helps people overcome their physical drawbacks.
