My practice is focused towards sports, deep tissue & remedial massage techniques, Trigger Point therapy (TrP), pain management, dry needling & deep tissue pregnancy massage.


I co-teach dry needling and pain management courses with Joannes Boele van Hensbroek, helping other professionals learn needling and how to integrate pain management techniques into their clinical practice.


Many prominent sports teams and gyms have put the recovery of their athletes in my hands, including the All Blacks, the Wellington Hurricanes and Lions, All Blacks Sevens team, NZ Blackcaps, RoyalNZ Ballet, Toa Crossfit (Wellington), Sydney Swans FC AFL team, Vodafone Warriors, USA 7s team, Wellington Firebirds, Wellington Phoenix, Melbourne Heart FC, Brisbane Roar FC, Wellington Colts under 21 Rugby prems and various other elite athletes from many different sporting codes.


I am also the official fight Massage Therapist for the Muay Thai Institute – Wellington’s MTI GYM (kickboxing) providing rehabilitation massage to many champion fighters, during their fight training and post-event to aid injury reduction and recovery. 


I enjoy giving deep tissue, therapeutic and sports massage - with a strong emphasis on the treatment, relaxation and recovery benefits that this can bring.

I thrive on professional development and regularly partake in courses to keep my skill-base at a top level - and to round it all off, I practice what I preach and receive regular massages to keep my own body in check.
