A Little bit about Mel

Where does my story begin? 


Well, I guess it began when I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. It’s been a very long road to get to this point and has taken a lot of soul searching, research and trying out various medical and non-medical treatments.


There was one particular year that was by far my worst year living with the condition. I had 10 weeks off work and was unable to move, walk, or break through the pain and fatigue barrier. 


It was in my darkest of days that I turned to counselling and looking into alternative Holistic and complimentary therapies to get me through. Whilst practising mindfulness and investigating essential oils to help with my pain, I came full circle and realised I was doing life all wrong. This was not going to beat me or take away my personality and mobility.


I was working at the time for social care which was having a very negative effect on my health and well-being and constantly flaring up the fibromyalgia. So, I looked more in-depth into Holistic therapy’s and began a Swedish massage Level 3 qualification.


As soon as I began, I knew right then and there, what I was meant to be doing with my life. Helping people, who not only like me suffer with disabilities but anyone and everyone.


The acceptance of living with the Fibromyalgia and the extremely difficult time I had gone through, made me realise that all I wanted to do was help others. However, I’d always wanted to help others but I just had never been able to find that specific thing that made me go, ‘I’m truly helping you’, that is until now.


Although massage therapy is currently my area of expertise, I do intend to go on and qualify in various other therapy’s such as reflexology, to name one. 


I have learnt so much, not just through the qualification but through living every minute of the day with a medical condition that can debilitate you and that no one really understands.


My hope is that I can bring this life experience to the therapy’s that I provide you, with a knowledgeable, and understanding empathy, no matter what your needs are.


I want to show you that anything is possible and that just because you can’t see it or touch it, doesn’t mean it’s not there or it can’t help. The power of touch is truly an amazing therapy in its self. So, whether you just want to relax, de-stress or need a healing hand to help make you feel better - I am your therapist, I’m hear and ready to help.
