I started out as a self employed beauty therapist back in 2007. Over the years I have learnt and gained qualifications in a wide variety of different therapies. I have gained a lot of experience over the years by working with and treating a large variety of clients of different ages and abilities. Progressing from Holistic massage to Sports massage lead to myself enrolling onto a Sports Therapy Degree at Moulton College and Northampton University back in 2008. I graduated in 2012 with a BSc (Hons) degree. The many years of ‘hands on’ experience has enabled me to seek out potential problems straight away by looking for possible “tell tale” signs, typical of common injuries. I also spent two seasons working alongside the Old Grammarians Rugby Club – 1st team, administering first aid where required on pitch side and ensuring all team members get the relevant and appropriate tailor-made treatment in clinic.
