ABOUT ME:

I began running at the age of eight, which started me on a life-long journey within sport, both as a competitive distance athlete and a therapist. After suffering the frustration of constant reoccurring injuries for many years, I decided I wanted to learn more about sports injuries, why they keep happening to me, and how I can help other people avoid the same perils I experienced. This quickly sparked a passion which led me to completing my England Athletics Assistant Coach qualification and then studying my undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science.

This degree included the study of Biomechanics which I would go on to specialise in, but also covered a wide array of other modules in the world of sport, including: Human Physiology, Fitness Training & Testing, Sports Nutrition, Sports Psychology and Physical Activity & Health of Children. While I am not a fully-qualified specialist in these areas, they do allow me to build a bigger understanding of the human body, which has ultimately enabled me to offer a greater range of advice to clients to complement their treatments, hence separating myself from other therapists who do not have such a background. 

 

After graduating, I then pursued my interest in injuries further by going on to study a masters degree in Biomechanics. In addition to this, I have also engaged in further training, as I am a fully-qualified Level 3 Sports Massage Therapist, currently awaiting certification at level 4, after recently completing this course. 

 

I operate as a practitioner in and around Melton Mowbray and Loughborough. I work closely with running clubs, as well as well as athletes from other sports such as cycling, rugby, football, karate, horse riding, multi-event athletic disciplines, and bodybuilding.  I work with athletes from a variety of backgrounds ranging from grass-roots to international and former olympic level.

 

A large focus of my work is to improve clients' key base movements and postures during standing, walking, jogging and running. This is something that is aided by my athletics background, as after all, running is at the core of nearly all modern day sporting activities. My belief is that improving these will provide a foundation on which better health can be built upon.
