About Helen

A fully qualified Massage Therapist for over 10 years. I hold APNT Diplomas in Anatomy & Physiology, Sports Injury Massage, Remedial Massage, Swedish Massage, Seated Acupressure Massage and Integrated Myofascial Release Techniques. I have also studied under John F Barnes, PT – an acknowledged expert in Myofascial Release.

Which means I am an advanced therapist trained to very high standards of skill, practice, knowledge and care. I am also a massage tutor and assessor.

  • I am originally from the Lake District where my previous career began as a Receptionist in a large 4 star hotel for 3 years, followed by 3 years in an Advertising Agency before moving to Exeter where I spent 6 years in the motor industry at Bridge Motorcycles and the Chrysler Jeep & Ferrari Maserati dealership (No, I didn’t get a company car)!
  • I then took time out to travel extensively around Asia and Europe with my husband. On returning to Devon I have been expanding my knowledge with more advanced massage and bodywork training ever since and I am now a full time therapist with an ever growing practice in Sidmouth.

I have many years experience in customer care and people often remark how quickly they feel at ease with me.

  • I am a full member of the Association of Physical and Natural Therapists (APNT) and registered with the British Complementary Medicine Association (BCMA) where I am bound to a professional code of ethics and practice.
  • I continue my professional development with post-graduate training and further study to improve your health and well being. Over the last 5 years I have invested a great deal of time and money to impove my knowledge and skills. I endeavour to continue my annual trips to America along with copius amounts of reading and reasearch for the forseeable future. I belive we never stop learning and I feel blessed to have found my passion in bodywork which gives me a great deal of job satisfaction.
  • I also tutor at the School of Bodywork in Exeter:

“A very enjoyable and informative course, very practical and hands on. Helen is an excellent teacher” PW

“Thoroughly enjoyed the course which was brilliantly taught! Will certainly recommend to others” GD
