She has been using and teaching soft tissue release (STR) for many years and has a thorough grounding in anatomy, which she uses to explain STR in straightforward terms.

This experience has brought her into contact with thousands of therapists of all disciplines and informed her own practice. She is passionate about supporting and inspiring newly qualified or less confident therapists so they feel more self-assured in their work. She frequently presents STR at conferences and exhibitions for therapists.
