"Massage is not a luxury, but a way to a happier, healthier life"

I believe our lives would all be a little better and a little easier if we had more massage!

I use massage and Pilates to help people function more effectively and feel better in their daily lives.

If you need Pilates or massage in Peebles, get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you.

My story & training:

Having a keen biker husband who also spent 40+ hours a week sat at a desk, I did a weekend massage course, thinking it might be fun, useful and save us a bit of money. Little did I know it was going to be a life changer!

Within weeks of doing the introductory course to Swedish Massage, I was signed up for the full diploma and had found my new vocation. The anatomy fascinated me and I realised how powerful a tool massage is for helping people in a variety of ways.

I completed my diploma in Swedish massage with Scottish Massage Schools in 2014. In 2015, I gained a diploma in On-site Chair Massage to bring massage to a wider audience in their workplace or at events. In 2016, I completed my diploma in Remedial and Sports Massage with the Western School in Glasgow which gave me a deeper understanding of anatomy and function and some new techniques to treat clients more effectively.  After discovering the benefits of Pilates myself, I trained over 2018-2021 to gain teaching diplomas from the Energywise Academy and MKPilates. In 2023, after several shorter courses, I completed a Certificate in Advanced Myofascial Release with Jing, and am really enjoying exploring this with clients as it seems a bit of a 'game changer' when it comes to pain. I have professional registration with the Scottish Massage Therapist Organisation (SMTO) and the Society for the Pilates Method (SPM) and enjoy constantly growing my experiences and skills through further courses, reading, events and, importantly, working with clients.

I am based in Silver Tree Studio just off Peebles High Street (where I offer massage and Pilates classes/1:1). I also offer mobile visits to accommodation, events, workplaces and your home if this is what you need.

I enjoy working at sports events. Through Athletes’ Angels and Official Sports Services , I've worked at the Edinburgh Marathon and 6-Nations Rugby; I've also worked at the Gullane Triathlon, various SMBO (Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering) events and provide massage at EWS (Enduro World Series). For the last 8 years, I've also had the privilege of working alongside a fantastic team providing event massage at Tweedlove including Glentress 7 and Tour o' the Borders.

I really enjoy working with clients and seeing them experience the benefits.

Whether you're thinking of a 1-off treat or a series of sessions to help with relaxation, sports training or pain-relief, get in touch for Pilates and massage in Peebles.
