 About me

I love my work as a sports massage therapist and take great pride in getting results for my clients. I am a member of two professional bodies, the sports massage association and the FHT.

 My CPD (Continuous Professional Development) over the last 12 months includes attending courses and workshops with Myofascial Release UK ( Myofascial Release advanced Upper body and Advanced Lower body) and with Sports Therapy UK (Neuro-Spinal assessment and treatment).

I have also been a successful competitive bodybuilder, winning North West Britain titles and represented Britain in the Mr Universe contest. I am also a qualified personal trainer, gym instructor and weightlifting instructor.

This training background has helped me gain an insight into the particular problems that many sports people and gym users encounter and to be able to offer relevant training advice.

I have worked on professional football players at Tranmere Rovers FC, the Japanese National Rugby Union team, professional and amateur boxers, runners and cyclists. 

Visit my treatment room or I can provide a mobile service to your home. I can also provide a service to your team or sports club.
