Since doing her first ever massage course in Level 3 Sports Massage, Carla realised that she had a passion for massage and wanted to take things further by expanding her techniques. She then went on to study Level 3 Holistic Therapies as well as a course in Advanced Massage Techniques. In 2012 Carla moved to West Sussex from Wales and have gained 4 years experience within the spa industry. In 2015 she completed Level 4 Sports Massage at Brighton & Hove City College.
Although Carla has trained in a range of different treatments, sports massage and reflexology are the techniques which she enjoys the most. The aspect of the job she enjoys the most is helping clients to get rid of any stress and discomfort by working on areas of tension and knots, helping to keep the muscles loose, making you feel more comfortable and improving sports performance. Carla likes to help others and feels that massage is a good way of looking after the muscle tone in the body.
