This is a bit like being asked at school 'What did you do in your Summer holidays?' ..... and you can't think of a thing! Here goes anyway......
I was born and brought up in Cornwall so, although I fought the basic instincts of a country girl during my teens and searched for the excitement and fast pace of city life, I came to my senses when I had children of my own and sought out the relative peace and tranquillity of country life. I now live in rural Norfolk (ignore the postal address - it's confusing!)
As a child, my family was not a wealthy one so it wasn't until later in life did I realise my dream of owning a horse - by default. My 3 children were young and my husband and I had bought them an old pony called 'Oliver' from a local riding school but they were growing up fast and when the novelty of caring for a pony wore off, picking up the reins suited me fine!
As my children grew up I did my nurse training and, over the years, have held a variety of nurse or health related jobs, including management.
Being made redundant in 2009 provided me with the opportunity to think about the direction I really wanted my future to take and this led to me contacting Mary Bromiley regarding the ITEC Equine Sports Massage training. She advised that I would first need to qualify in human massage and so, whilst working full time as a Health Co-ordinator with the Youth Offending Team, I undertook and passed ITEC training in Holistic Massage (Level 3) and Sports Massage (Level 4). Since 2011 when I qualified as a massage therapist, I practiced first on a part time and now on a full time basis - thoroughly enjoing every minute. Having previously traded under the name of 'Balance Massage' I have gradually, since qualifiying in equine sports massage, made the transition to my new trading name of 'Janet Luck Equine and Human Sports Massage' - it is what is says on the tin!
I still own a horse (wouldn't be without them) and my husband and I keep our two horses 'Bailey' and 'Minstrel' and young pony 'Bo' at home. Now that I've completed my training in Equine Sports Massage, furthered my development by training as a Saddle Company saddle fitter, I look forward to helping both horses and humans to optimise their physical ability.
