Meet The Owner

Qualified Sports massage therapist for Stormers and Western Province rugby teams, Sports Science sports massage therapist, pilates instructor and business entrepreneur.

I graduated in 2009 doing the one thing that I love – working with people and helping their bodies.

My passion for the human body started when I worked at Curves, a Womens Gym franchise in 2007. Being hands on and working with women to achieve their body and health goals, I developed a love for helping people. In 2010 I became the manageress of Curves Tokai and ended my Curves journey in 2013 when I saw an opportunity to start my own business venture in Massage Therapy.

I then joined a health and wellness team, which was a great platform for my foundation in the industry and also joined the Sports Science Institute of South Africa as a sports massage therapist. This very same year, I had the great privilege in joining the Stormers and Western Province Rugby’s recovery team. I have been with them for 4 seasons now, working with the teams on a regular basis.

In 2014, I decided to start my own massage studio and broke away from the Wellness team and started my own practice, currently based full time in Kirstenhof.

I have also been associated with the Trail and Tar Massage Team helping teams conquer The Absa Cape Epic, 3 years in a row now.

As my passion for the human body keeps growing, I have added Pilates to my reptoire. This has been a great added complementary service and I am absoloutely loving this new take on helping the body.

My aim is to personalise my service to each individual client and to get them to achieve their bodily /muscular and/or postural goals.
