My name is Liisa and I'm the owner and the sole therapist here. I opened TherapiesFirst back in October 2012 offering just a few different types of massage treatments.
I have always been interested in how human body works. I have a degree (BSc) in Physiotherapy. After graduating from University I started working in a Rheumatology department treating adults and children with different rheumatological problems. After that I went on to work in a private hospital where I treated adults and children with a wide range of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and neurological problems. I enjoyed my work very much. After moving to the UK I decided to put all my energy into Massage Therapy. The effect that massage has on people (and animals) has always facinated me so that was the reason why I opened up my own treatment room.
I have gained my experience in Swedish and Deep tissue massage through my Physiotherapy work. Since starting my own business I have regularly been taking courses to develop my skills to be able to offer a wider range of treatments. I take my continuous professional development very seriously therefore, I plan to carry on taking courses as often as possible in the future.
Being the only therapist doing the treatments here, I am able to get to know my clients and offer them more personalised approach compared to big salons.
I always do my best to help, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
