Massage is commonly used to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, to reduce stress and to aid in general wellbeing.
At Caterham Osteopaths, we offer several different forms of massage, including advanced clinical massage, sports remedial massage, and many more.

Sports and clinical
I am a member of the Federation of
Holistic Therapists and I hold a number of qualifications in: Sports Massage, Kinesiology Taping, Oncology
Massage, Table Thai Massage, Swedish Massage, Hot Stones and Indian Head Massage
Currently I am working towards completing BTEC Level 6 as an Advanced Clinical massage therapist. This is
currently the highest qualification available to massage therapists in this country and shows a very high level of
commitment to client care and training.
In addition to this I have experience as a personal trainer, am able to offer nutrition advice, have First Aid
qualifications and hold an enhanced DBS certificate. I have worked on a number of sporting events helping
athletes and amateurs achieve their goals.
Oncology and Palliative Care – I am a regular volunteer oncology therapist at the Macmillan Centre at East Surrey
Hospital. I work with clients who have some very challenging health problems including pre and post cancer
treatment and surgeries and deliver care up to end of life. I consider this to have been the greatest privilege of my
working life so far.
I have been working and training continuously for many years and am committed to getting clients out of pain,
mobile and active with a combination of highly effective treatments. Chronic pain can often be fixed and managed
with good soft tissue release and mobilisation. Please don’t hesitate to enquire if you think I may be able to help you.
