I am a certified Soft Tissue Therapist (BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma) working full time as part of the medical department treating the first team at a Premier League Football Club.
As a graduate of the London School of Soft Tissue Therapy (LSSM) I am a member of the Institute of Soft Tissue Remedial Therapists (ISRM). I have also undertaken further training in Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Correctional Exercise Selection.
After enjoying a 10yr career as a Crime Scene Investigator for Sussex Police, I underwent a pretty huge transformation. I lost over 11 stone through diet, exercise and counselling which had a profound effect on my confidence and fuelled my interest in anatomy and the human body.
I took the decision to make health and fitness an integral part of my lifestyle by retraining as a Fitness Instructor and have since worked at PW Physique and Fitness with clients to build confidence, lose weight and achieve their fitness goals.
Having received sports-style massages, and appreciating the benefits, I looked into being able to offer sports massage to my clients.
I undertook training and gained experience in an advanced clinical approach to treating soft tissue dysfunction that would allow me to offer assessment, treatment and management of a wide range of conditions; not just sports related or injury specific.
These other situation include:
Pre-surgery soft-tissue preparation
Post surgery soft tissue rehabilitation
Symptom relief relating to Multiple Sclerosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, to name a few.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is especially useful helping reducing swelling and/or lymphedema.
Although I treat elite athletes on a daily basis, I get as much satisfaction helping the general public resolve everyday issues caused by postural dysfunction or recreational exercise.
