Hi, I'm Susan, I opened Optimise Therapies in 2016 after gaining my initial diploma in Swedish Massage with Scottish Massage Schools. I have continued my studies since adding a number of alternative techniques. In September of 2018, I completed my certificate in Advanced Remedial Therapies. I am a member of the professional body SMTO- The Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation. I also hold qualifications in Myofascial Release, Hot and Cold Stone Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Kinetic Taping and Reiki. I work out of the treatment room within the centre conducting these treatments.

 I also use the studio to teach gentle yoga and chair yoga and hold guided meditation classes. I sucessfully completed my 200hr yoga teacher training with Yoga Jo's in March 2020.
