Massage Therapist (Dip. SMRT)
Jules originally came across Remedial Massage as a way to manage her own tension headaches and migraines, she found that no amount of pills or lying down in a dark room would improve things. Instead, she found that by having weekly massage for her neck and shoulders, this improved her well-being markedly.
Having seen the benefits of regular massage first hand Jules was curious enough about the "magic of massage" to book onto a weekend course to learn a bit more about it. She instantly became hooked and halfway through the first morning of the course signed herself up for a Level 5 Diploma in Sports and Remedial Deep Tissue Massage. Since then, Jules has also completed further courses to specialize in Pregnancy Massage, Hot Stone treatment and Kinesio Taping.
