I hold various teaching qualifications in watersports such as sailing, windsurfing and powerboating.
I treat clients from a variety of sporting backgrounds including marathon runners, gym bunnies, sprinters, boxers, footballers, cricketers, windsurfers, rugby players, personal trainers and body builders.
I have gained valuable assessment skills and treatment experience from working alongside physiotherapists at Brighton Blues Rugby club, Brighton and Hove Albion football club, Sussex County Cricket club, Wasps Rugby club and Brighton and Hove Athletics club. Treating such issues as muscular tension, whiplash, DOMS, muscle strain, RSI, low back pain, dead legs, joint sprains, tendonitis, shin splints and post operative compensation patterns.
My treatments are tailored to the individual client so that they are as effective as possible. I listen to your feedback and act on it as I believe that sports massage achieves best results when client and therapist work together.
As an exercise enthusiast I understand the desire that sports people have to continue to be active, but as a therapist I often see the signs of overuse, misuse, disuse and abuse. I try to provide you with realistic advice which will help you to modify your training and lifestyle, in order to ensure a full recovery.
