I qualified as a Level 3 Sports Massage and injury practitioner in 2016, Level 4 in 2017 and then Level 5 in 2019 at St Mary's University, Twickenham. I also qualified as a Kinesio-taping specialist in 2017, dry cupping in 2019 and as a pitch-side First Aider in 2018. I qualified in IASTM with Rockblades and Rockpods in 2020. With both pregnancy massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage qualifications achieved in 2020 too. I have been working with the Aylesford Bulls Rugby Club since 2018 and treat players in clinic and during matches.
My interested in sports massage stems from a deep understanding how the muscles and nervous system work in the human body. It has a major impact on everyday life and the benefits of massage can not only affect how your body feels but significantly impacts your mental well-being too.
I have always had a love of sport and especially anatomy and physiology I have a GCSE in PE, A level PE and Biology, followed by a degree in PE. With over 17yrs of experience teaching various sports including football, netball, cricket and athletics it’s allowed me to understand the mechanics of different injuries that I get presented with.
My ultimate goal is to help people feel better and to have the skills and knowledge to improve a person’s day-to-day life. Whether that be living pain-free, moving better or just having the confidence to move more. All of which have a positive impact on how they live their lives, I have the power to make a difference.
I treat clients who are from all walks of life, from professional athletes to clients that participate in sport and exercise as a way of maintaining ongoing health issues or just to keep fit and healthy. I can help you if you are training for a particular event including marathons, triathlons, matches or competitions. I have helped my clients to remain at their peak fitness levels by having pre and post event massage which helps them to remain injury free and aid recovery.
I am fully insured with public liability insurance I am also enhanced DBS checked which enables me to treat clients under 18 year old who have an incredibly active hectic sporting lifestyle meaning they also need maintenance to be at their optimum to perform. Under 18s can be treated with a parent/guardian present. I am a full member of a relevant professional body: the Sports Therapy Association.
