Beryl Harper qualified as a remedial massage therapist at the Northern Institute of Massage, Blackpool in July 1983. Two years later she became a tutor at the institute and taught for over 20 years.
Beryl has a very varied and busy practice in the Rossendale Valley, where she also teaches Yoga two nights a week.
Beryl has always believed that the value of massage for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain is greatly underrated and over her years in practice has searched to find a therapy that is massage based and pain free, yet manages to penetrate into the deeper soft tissue where most musculoskeletal problems linger.
In 2004 she was asked to review a book entitled Massage for Orthopaedic Conditions by Dr. Tom Hendrickson, here she found what she was looking for. Since then she has completed the course run by Dr Hendrickson in San Francisco and has not been disappointed by what she has learned.
Beryl served as President of the London and Counties Society of Physiologists, later to become the LCSP Register of Remedial Masseurs and Manipulative Therapists from 2000 to 2009, and continues to serve on Council.
In her spare time she is learning to play the piano, enjoys reading, attends concerts and is an avid theatregoer.
