I always loved how much better we can help each other feel through massage, physically and emotionally. I started offering massage to my friends and family when I was a teenager. I fell in love with yoga for the emotional, physical and energetic benefits in 2006, and I have been practising regularly since.
I came across Ayurvedic Yoga Massage in 2011, started training, and I never looked back. I had been looking for a vocation, something I love doing that the world also needs.. And I have definitely found that in AYM. I have been a full time AYM therapist since 2012, and teacher since 2016. I have never come across a bodywork method that feels more complete, powerful and effective in transforming the body and mind. And I firmly believe that when we feel well, we can be the best possible version of ourselves.
The highlight for me as a student of therapeutic bodywork is having watched Kusum Modak, who developed Ayurvedic Yoga Massage as a modality, treat clients. Kusum is extremely talented, her intuition developed through four decades of experience, and she is also inspiringly loving and humble. I met Kusum in January 2020 and I will continue to learn from her at every possible opportunity.
I have also studied pregnancy massage with Suzanne Yates, and developed and teach Ayurvedic Yoga Massage for pregnancy as a modality.

For most clients, I generally recommend starting off with a 90-minute session so we can have an effective treatment, and a little time to explore what is happening in the body, and how the body responds to the treatment. We can then discuss what frequency and length of treatments would serve you best in the future, depending on your body and lifestyle. If you are not sure, then please get in touch and we can discuss what you need/length of initial treatment.
After an initial session we can discuss your needs, and I can recommend a course of sessions that would be of the most appropriate length and frequency for you.
I offer a sliding scale depending on what clients can afford, between £70-120/hour in London, £60-90/hour in Leeds and Glasgow. If you are not sure what you can afford/what the treatment is worth/how I can help you, then we can book your first treatment at the lower rate and discuss how to best proceed from there. I offer discounted rates for prospective students, trainee AYM therapists and for clients who commit to regular treatments. I can occasionally offer some concession rates for people on low incomes, but I have limited availability, please contact me if you require a concession rate.
