My journey in the wellness industry commenced in the early 80’s when a serious car accident left me with debilitating back pain. My doctors referred me to specialists for assistance with the management of the pain caused by my injury but none of the treatments which included medications and an 18 month cycle of periodic traction, provided me with any substantial or permanent pain relief. I found myself seeking alternative treatment modalities in order to find some relief. This led me to the Acupressure Centre in the heart of Melbourne and to my utter amazement, after a few treatments and without medication the pain began to subside.This ignited my passion for learning about complementary treatments via alternative therapeutic methods ever since.

In order to ensure that my skills and knowledge remain up to date and to maintain my qualifications I attend various Professional Development Seminars throughout the year. I bring my extensive skill set and knowledge base as well as my many years of experience to any treatment in order to ensure the optimal benefit for my client. It is also a basic tenet of my practice that it is the person that I treat and not just the condition.
