I'm Angela Woodward and i thought you might like to know more about me.
I am in my mid 40's and a mother of 2 daughters. After suffering for years with discomfort, that I simply put down to getting older, juggling a full time job and looking after two children I was diagnosed with a condition called Fibromyalgia in 2012.
As time went on I discovered that stress and damp cold weather made my condition worse, sometimes to the point that I could hardly function. I was working in an insurance office for many years but I was made redundant from this job. I have always spoken about learning massage after i had found it had helped me with my Fibromyalgia and I had a keen interest in Holistic Terapy so i used me being made redundant as an opportunity to make a new start in something I wanted to do and I undertook a Diploma in Holistic Therapies.
Learning these new skills alongside receiving complimentary treatments as part of my training has meant I have seen a sharp decline in the symptoms I suffer with owing to my Fibromyalgia. This is not the case for everybody, but for me I have far more energy, a lot less stress and consequently far less pain. Nothing makes me more happier then introducing the benefits of massage to others who are in a similar situation to my own. Whether that be to ease tense aching muscles, aid sleep, relieve headaches or to help them feel at peace, more relaxed and able to cope with everyday stresses and strains.
I now have my own private treatment room at my home but i am also happy to come to you if that is more convenient
You will find details of the treatments i can offer you and how i think they can help people. Please contact me if you would like to discuss any individual concerns or to find out how massage can help you. I look forward to helping you begin your own journey back to a better place.
