Maria Pali - Massage Therapist

Maria Pali

Superpowers: remedial massage; full body massage; deep tissue massage; sports massage.

Maria originally trained in Japanese body work with the Shiatsu College in the 1990’s and later trained in several holistic therapies giving her a understanding of the importance of the need to treat the whole person in body, mind and spirit. But it was Maria’s first life changing marathon in 2010 that got her hooked on the idea of massage for pain and injury. Maria then trained as a Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist, completing the Certificate in Advanced Clinical Massage with the award winning Jing Institute. One marathon was not enough to feed Marias desire to run. Since 2010 she has run over a 100 marathons and 25 ultra marathons! Maria runs locally with Brighton and Hove Athletic Club and is a full member of the 100 Marathon Club and Vegan Runners UK.

A little more info about Maria…

Favourite sports - marathons and ultra marathons.

Last time I was really scared - wild swimming in a river in India and realising a baby crocodile was swimming right next to me. I could only wonder where mum was and despite being a dreadful swimmer, I probably set a new speed record in my attempt to get out of the water!

Most impressive location I've seen - Salar di Uyuni, Bolivia.

Final meal - a huge plate of shepherd's pie.

Two dinner party guests - Benjamin Zephania and Scott Jurek.

Desert island discs, which album? -  PJ Harvey, Stories from the City or Nick Cave, Let Love In.

Animal that best reflects me - a horse, during a shamanic ceremony I was told my spirit animal is a bay mare. I often call on her when I'm running and I need her power.

Greatest self accomplishment - In 2014-15 I ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks and then a week later my 100th marathon overall.
