With experience of working with artistic athletes at Northern Ballet Harriet has an acute understanding of sports injuries and how massage can aid performance & rehabilitation.

She is fascinated by how different yet similar our bodies are and how massage can have such a huge impact on both our physical and psychological state.
Movement, alignment and positioning are of particular interest with her approach not only focusing on tightnesses in the body but where they may be referred from.
In her spare time Harriet enjoys yoga, weight training and aqua aerobics which allow her to appreciate how movement makes us feel. Variety is the spice of life after all!
