About myself

Having over 10-years’ experience in project and operations management and obtaining an MBA degree study in the UK, I have gained a good understanding of business and clients, which provided a solid foundation for the start-up of my own massage business. I entered into the health care industry as a massage therapist in 2015 initially for my own health issues and then soon discovered great self-satisfaction when I helped other people to achieve their health goals, which motivated and convinced me this is something I really want to do as a new career for the rest of my life.

Since I started this career, I have worked with Phoenix Football, Sourthen Steel Netball Team, British Lions (2017), Wellington Central Pulse, Super Rugby Teams (e.g. Western Force, Southern Kings, Jaguars), Bulldogs and Wallabies  as a subcontractor to JRM Australia Pty. Ltd., the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Currently I have been providing massage services for the athletes who are going to compete at World Master IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship in August 2018 USA.

I thoroughly enjoy being a massage therapist. The biggest reward is to help people improve their health and well-being so does the quality of their lives.
