I originally trained at The Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences in Manhattan New York USA graduating in 1998.(www.swedishinstitute.com) Arriving back in London I moved into a live work studio at Westferry in July 2000 where I began to develop The Quiet Space. I have been in full time practice as a massage therapist with a very varied client base ever since my original New York training.
In 2005 I moved The Quiet Space to The Cannon Workshops where we remained for three or so years enjoying yoga classes, belly dancing and pilates as well as providing a treatment room for various therapists and my own massage practice. Many of the clients who first came to The QS at Westferry in 2000/2001 are still around today.
The current version of The Quiet Space is just myself and a small treatment room. My clients are totally varied in terms of lifestyles, hobbies and reasons for getting regular massage therapy.
For me when The Quiet Space was also a yoga studio it felt like a temple and our yoga students did say it felt very reverential. I thought I was going to buy a different premises and live above it for the rest of my life!
Closing the studio in 2008 with hindsight was probably not a 'good business decision' but it was the right personal one at the time and life continued to unfold.
So all the years of yoga practice, self enquiry and other interests and hobbies plus of course the insights gained from nearly 20 years massage therapy practice provide a fundamental influence physically, mentally and emotionally which I draw from when treating and working with you.
