A passion to study Complementary Therapies began after experiencing firsthand their diverse benefits upon her own personal wellbeing, as they proved invaluable in combating any negative effects of intrinsically linked emotional and physical lifestyle choices. Her keen interest in various Martial Arts meant that she often experienced over-use issues and numerous injuries which had an impact on her performance and health. Additionally, along with a high percentage of the Nation, her emotional wellbeing was also under strain from the general stresses of work and home life.
