“One of my greatest joys is to see people get healthier, to help them exceed their expectations and actualize their goals. All while realizing that exercise is fun”.
The intensity is what you make it and you are encouraged to work to your capacity. We can do sessions with you or we can assess you and set you an individualized program to work on at home, and you can pop back when you want your program updated.
Sports massage is great ! But not every sports massage is the same. We can use different speeds, pressures and even different techniques depending on what you want from your massage. We’ll chat to you at the start and find out what type of massage is best for you!
“Over the past 10 years since receiving my first massage diploma my armory of techniques has grown greatly. My hunger for learning never dwindled and I take between 1 and 5 further courses every year to further my knowledge.
I’ve been lucky to have worked with many great sports teams and the GB tennis team. I love swapping techniques and knowledge with the best therapists in the UK and abroad. My efficiency has improved and my technique with my hands has become increasing flowing and polished over the years. This all makes sure you receive the most effective muscle melting massage possible”
