Tia trained at the highly respected School of Bodywork in Exeter, gaining a distinction in the Complete Bodyworker Diploma. Tia has carried out additional training in deep tissue massage and Thai massage, as well as having qualified as an aromatherapist. Tia is currently studying for a diploma in remedial massage which covers advanced massage techniques.
Prior to teaching, Tia worked in the charity sector and is also a qualified further education teacher, having worked in sixth form colleges teaching Sociology and World Development.
Tia takes a dynamic approach to massage, tailoring treatments to the needs of the client -whether it’s carrying out intensive deep tissue work to target specific issues or injuries, or a gentle treatment to promote relaxation. Tia is interested in understanding the individual’s unique physiology and targeting her work to promote health and wellbeing.
“I was drawn to massage therapy having benefitted hugely myself from receiving treatments for general relaxation and for sports injuries. It’s a real joy to be able to treat others, addressing the issues they are facing and working to strengthen the body and mind.”
