QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCES:

Sports Massage Therapist Level 3

I am also studying to become a Chiropractor at the AECC and will be entering my final year in September 2019.
As a competitive sports person I understand the importance of keeping the body free from pain by ensuring muscles are working in the correct balance. This will optimise performance, with the added benefit of reducing the risk of injury. I am also trained in postural and movement assessment, which can help me to identify and treat the origin of the problem as well as prevailing symptoms.
