Kirsty is a sports and remedial massage therapist and mat Pilates teacher. Although she works with a variety of clients she has a special interest in treating pre and postnatal women in both massage and Pilates, helping them move and feel better during this life-changing period.

Many of Kirsty's clients have had caesareans and she was keen to learn how to treat them properly in order to be able to provide a more complete service to her clients. She loves how ScarWork can have such a huge impact helping people not only feel better physically but often emotionally too. Due to her client base and her interest in women's health, she works largely with caesarean and other abdominal scars but also has experience with burns, joints and facial scars.

Education
Kirsty trained in sports and remedial massage at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM). She then went on to qualify as a Pilates teacher with the Future Fit School of Pilates. She has also attended a variety of CPD short courses and workshops to enhance her qualifications in the field of pre/postnatal and women's health. In April 2018, she trained in Sharon Wheeler's ScarWork with Emma Holly, and has participated in a fast track ScarWork specialist training to become part of the Restore Therapy team.

Career
Kirsty teaches her own group Pilates classes and has also worked in private clinics as a sports massage therapist and 1:1 Pilates teacher, treating a variety of clients with minor sporting injuries as well as everyday aches and pains caused by their occupation, posture or lifestyle. She has also worked as a physiotherapist assistant in the community, visiting care and nursing homes treating patients with a variety of issues such as dementia, cancer, arthritis, neurological conditions and post surgery.
