I’m a Soft Tissue Therapist, with a BTEC Level 5 Professional National Diploma, having trained with London School of Sports Massage (LSSM). I am also a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage. I offer treatment for muscular pain from sports injury or the stresses of everyday life by combining assessment, treatment which includes massage and a rehabilitation plan including stretching and strengthening to get you back to doing the things you want to do. Soft tissue therapy can help you achieve your sporting challenges, cope with increasing training levels and recover quicker from training sessions and races. I have treated many injuries and conditions including ankle sprains, achilles problems, ITB pain, plantar fasciitis, peroneal strain, knee pain, lower back problems, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, postural problems, sciatica and piriformis syndrome.
I’m also an UK Athletics Coach in Running Fitness, which means I can plan a progressive training programme to help runners towards their specific goals. I currently coach weekly mixed ability training sessions with Ordnance Survey Runners.
I’ve been running for over 15 years and am a member of Totton Running Club and Ordnance Survey Runners Run England Group. I’ve competed in distances from 5k to marathon, including road and cross country races. I’ve also taken part in all sorts of team relays events, from National Road Relay Champs to ThunderRun (completing 5 x 10k in 24 hours). I also enjoy swimming and cycling.
