I’m good thank you; I’m a Sports massage and Aromatherapy practitioner here.
Tell us about your background? How did you get into it?
I have been doing it since 1999. I used to play a lot of football but I got injured, and I didn’t rehabilitate it properly, which caused it to get worse and accelerate. I thought if my injuries meant I couldn’t go back to training and make it in to professional football, I wanted to find something else that is centred around sport and health.
I went on to study Sports Massage. A lecturer said I was a natural and I really enjoyed it so went on to further my studies, doing complimentary therapies, then gained a degree in Sports Therapy. I have done a number of small courses on top of that to learn different techniques.
What are the three main benefits of the treatment?
- Faster recovery from training
- Relief of muscular tension and shortened muscles
- Increased range of movement and a general feeling of well-being.
What do you love about treating at Trinity Laban Health?
I enjoy getting different cases, it keeps it challenging with a range of injuries. I have good interaction with all my clients. Working with dancers means a large range of issues, everyone coming in with slightly different cases. This means I always have to think on my feet so I can never get bored.
