Sports Massage Therapy
In 2021 I decided to develop my knowledge further and trained to become a Sports Massage Therapist, this has helped me to gain more of an understanding on the human body, dysfunctional movement patterns and how to programme more effectively as a Personal Trainer.Sports Massage Therapy is a hands-on approach to help ease those aches and pains by reducing muscle tension, breaking down scar tissue & adhesions (knots) to increase blood flow, develop range of movement and to encourage correct movement patterns to prevent further issues.
Sports Massage Therapy
All classes can be modified to suit all ages, abilities and fitness levels.
