I 've been a qualified holistic massage practitioner since 1997 and trained with the wonderful Well Mother in Pregnancy and Postnatal massage in about 2004 which then led me to my doula work, so all my work is now maternity based. My massage treatments are a mix of oil based massage inc some reflexology and shiatsu techniques [using aromatherapy oils suitable for pregnancy or postnatal where appropriate] I love being able to ease some pregnancy related problems with deep tissue massage and shiatsu energy work for clients. I find the shiatsu really helpful and emotionally balancing and the oil massage is relaxing and nurturing on a more physical level. I'm based in North London and work from my home in Islington and at the Active birth Centre therapy clinic
