A little about me...

Throughout the years I have worked and trained both as a massage therapist and as an enrolled nurse.

 

I completed my therapeutic & relaxation massage training in Melbourne, Australia. I also trained in Shiatsu and completed an intensive five-day Thai massage training course in Chaing Mai, Thailand.

When massaging, I call from a skillset learnt from each modality to give you the most benefit from your massage.

 

Wanting to further my education, at the age of 35, I attended Auckland University and three years later gained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology, including completing several papers in psychology, giving me a greater depth and understanding of the human psyche.

I then went on to study creative writing and film at Massey University, taking graduate diploma papers and shortly after started to write children's books.

 Way Back When...

 

Alongside my massage work, when my son first started school, I wrote and published my first children's book, I Love Myself and I still continue to write and publish my books to this day. Writing and sharing positive messages, and instilling a greater sense of self-worth in our young, are one of my passions.
