About Me

I trained as a nurse in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in the early 1970s and qualified as a midwife in Pembury, Kent in 1978. I continued to work at my nursing studies and now work part time as a Nurse Practitioner. Over time I realised how important it is to treat people holistically and not just concentrate on the symptoms of an illness or disease.  This led me to study a selection of complementary therapies including Reiki,  Aromatherapy, Swedish and Indian head massage, and some aspects of beauty therapy. More recently I have been interested in the psychological aspect of health and well being and have completed an MSc in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy. I recently trained as an Meridian Energy Practitioner utilising the Emotional Freedom Technique.

I have personal experience of breast cancer treatment and lymphodema and this led me to complete the Vodder method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage or MLD.  This is a specialised massage for lymphoedema. I update this training every 2 years and arrange and facilitate updates for other Vodder practitioners in conjunction with Professor Hildegard Wittlinger from the Vodder School in Austria.

I am registered as a MLD practitioner with MLD UK, and the Dr Vodder Schools in both Austria and North America. I am also registered with the Royal College of Nursing and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Qualified Manual Lymphatic drainage #MLD therapist provide treatment at Revitalised Aesthetics. According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, more and more people are making the decision to enhance their appearance through cosmetic surgery. One of the most popular procedures opted for by men and women is liposuction. A downside of cosmetic surgery is the initial after effects, such as swelling and bruising, which are experienced by patients post surgery. however, a course of Manual Lymphatic drainage Massage(MLD) treatment makes the healing process MUCH faster. It's important to optimise the result, minimise the risk of irregularity. Hence, more and more cosmetic surgeons like UK's leading cosmetic surgeon Dr Wolf, insist their patients to have a course of intense MLD treatment post operatively. It is crucial that you find a qualified MLD therapist , they should be registered with MLD UK. MLDUK is a professional association of manual lymphatic drainage practitioners. They hold national data base of certified MLD practitioners. #liposuction #manual lymphatic drainage #MLD #mlduk #coametic surgery #plastic surgeons
