We are delighted to announce that Kirsten O’Neil has joined the team. Kirsten is a qualified in Personal Trainer and has worked in various gym as a fitness instructor.

Sher is qualified Level 4 Sports Massage therapist abd has recently completed a course in myofascial cupping as an additional tool to her treatments.
Kirsten has experience working with elderly patients in an inpatient setting, providing rehabilitation as well as her sports massage work, so her approach to massage and training is more balanced and the main goal is to educate clients - not just treat them.
Kirsten has always loved spending time outdoors and enjoys exploring new places for walking; she also likes to keep fit by going to the gym and challenges herself by doing bouldering too.
