BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science, member of the Sport Therapy Association and the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences
I love sports and I have always been very active since I was a child. I believe that an active lifestyle is the key for a long healthy life. However, unpleasant things happen and following a knee injury I soon discovered how pain and muscle imbalance can negatively affect life; but I also learnt how to manage this condition.
As a Sport Scientist, Certified Sports Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer my main goal is to help people discover the potential of their body to get rid of pain and improve the quality of their life.
Thanks to Sports and Deep Tissue massage I am able to help people suffering of a wide range of conditions including: aches and pains, low mobility and flexibility, back pain, neck pain, headache and migraines, muscle fatigue, stress, anxiety, fibromyalgia, musculoskeletal injuries, muscle tightness, stiffness, gluteal amnesia (dead butt syndrome).
I gained experience in the health field by working as a Physiotherapy Assistant at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham, where I helped people to recover from injuries and surgeries through strength and conditioning programs for rehabilitation.
I am currently working with a Sport Physiotherapy Team supporting clients during their rehab journey and developing the best strategy to help them go back to their everyday life.
Whether you need to relieve pain or discomfort, recover from an injury or simply want to improve the quality of your life, please get in touch and I will explain how I can help you.

From the Lotus Sutra, one of the most influential and venerated Buddhist Mahayana sutras:
“A WATERFALL called the Dragon Gate exists in China. Its waters plunge a hundred feet, swifter than an arrow shot by a strong warrior. It is said that a great many carp gather in the basin below, hoping to climb the falls, and that any that succeeds will turn into a dragon. Not a single carp, however, out of a hundred, a thousand, or even ten thousand, can climb the falls, not even after ten or twenty years. Some are swept away by the strong currents, some fall prey to eagles, hawks, kites, and owls, and others are netted, scooped up, or even shot with arrows by fishermen who line both banks of the falls ten chō long. Such is the difficulty a carp faces in becoming a dragon."
The Chinese legend tells of a large school of fish—shining like polished jewels—that made the long and difficult journey upstream against the current of the mighty Yellow River.
When they reached an imposing waterfall many of them resigned to simply return to the flow and went back the way they came. Some of the fish, however, were unfazed and attempted to leap up the cascading water to make it to the top.
One version of the legend says that some of the local deities, or demons, were drawn to the splashing. Seeing the determined efforts of the koi fish, and out of spite, cruelly made the waterfall even higher. It didn’t have the desired effect, though—and unperturbed—the koi redoubled their efforts to get to the top.
For 100 years the koi toiled against the odds, until finally a single koi crested the top of the waterfall to make it into the river above.
The gods who witnessed this colossal achievement rewarded the courageous fish for its perseverance by transforming the koi into a golden dragon. This dragon fish now traverses the skies above the river, constantly seeking pearls of wisdom.
As a result, the waterfall became known as the Dragon Gate and any koi that summons the strength, courage and determination to swim against the tide and through the gates is bestowed the same honor as the original fish that overcame adversity.
The story embodies the principles of perseverance, strength and continued courage, reminding us to never give up, no matter the odds.
