“What if we recharge ourselves as often as we did our phones?.”

She developed her expertise by training in the public and private sector and working in the luxurious Spa Gorraiz in Pamplona-Spain. She also worked exclusively for wealthy patients around London, which allowed her to pay attention to detail and comply with the high expectations from her patients.

Shari’s dream was always to have that boho-style clinic with a wide range of trendy massage treatments offered professionally at a high standard. That’s why she decided to open Belfast Physio and Massage as she knew how to stand out from the crowd, and more importantly, she knew what people needed.

Shari’s expertise is the Physio Style Massage which may involve Deep Tissue & Trigger point techniques, massage gun, cupping, Kinesio tape, wood tools, infrared lamp, etc. She wouldn’t give up until she started seeing results.
