Hi I’m Claudia - nutritional and massage therapist with a passion for healthy cooking.
As a nutritional therapist I base my approach on the principles of functional medicine - meaning I seek the underlying causes of a problem rather that “fixing” it by suppressing the symptoms.
I worked for many years in the health industry throughout and following my diploma in Nutritional Therapy at the London College of Naturopathic Medicine. Through the experience of having to juggle long working hours and studying I gained the appreciation for the need of a ‘realistic’ approach to find my own ‘healthy’ which in turn I apply with my clients. In my professional career I have also gained extensive knowledge on nutritional supplements which I sometimes suggest to my clients as an addition to a diet plan.
I strive to divulge awareness on how bad food can harm us and how to make the best choices in any situation, help you listen to your body and aim to provide a plan that fits with your lifestyle so you can find your version of healthy.

I am also a fully qualified massage therapist and have been practicing holistic massages for 13 years. I deeply believe in the power of massage to help reduce stress, muscle tension, headaches, improve circulation and support detoxification. I offer massages which include deep tissue techniques for loosening muscle fibres, stroke movements for muscle stretching and relaxation and pressure techniques to reduce tension and stiffness.

“Since I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia four years ago, I have been looking for different strategies to cope with chronic pain. Then I met Claudia, who guided me in this whole and organic food discovering journey. She was able to identify the most effective diet to reduce the inflammation and my condition has improved significantly after only 3 months. Also, I had a deep tissue massage with her - she got rid of all the tension from my muscles and worked her way perfectly through all of the knots. I would highly recommend Claudia as a health therapist and I will definitely use her services in the future.”
