Lizzie has a passion for helping people feel better in their bodies whether that is through Massage or Hypopressives, she uses all of her knowledge and skills to offer a bespoke service to her clients to ensure they receive the best results.

Lizzie’s approach

Lizzie’s approach is to listen carefully to her clients, observe how they stand, breathe, and move, find out about their lifestyle and what makes things feel worse or better. Depending on why the client has come to see her she will then either focus on Hypopressives for Core Rehab work combined with Pilates and stretching techniques when required or utilise sports massage techniques to improve range of movement and reduce tension. Over her 25 years as a coach and massage therapist, Lizzie has worked with a variety of people from office workers to athletes and everyone in between with all different wants and needs and enjoys what she does, which comes through in her sessions.

She also loves to learn and is currently doing a course on female hormones from menstruation to menopause and also 3rd Age women, which includes exercise and diet for perimenopause/ menopausal women, so she can offer more support to her clients on this topic.
