BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Clinical Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy (Oxford, UK)
Following a successful engineering career in the UK that was not taking me in the direction I wanted in life, and having experienced sports therapy for the first time (due to a martial arts injury), I pursued it as a career in 2015.
I achieved my latest qualification (BTEC level 5 Diploma) at the Oxford School of Sports Massage, which is recognised as the highest qualification in the UK and accredited by the Sports Massage Association.
As a new therapist to Absolute Therapy, I am keen to flourish in a clinical environment, meeting new clients and therapists. After running my own successful private clinic in Warwickshire England, I moved to New Zealand in April 2017 to extend my knowledge and experience to a new level.
In my treatments, I like to focus in soft tissue manipulation, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, positional release techniques, neuromuscular techniques, body mechanics, rehabilitation, remedial exercises and stretches for injury prevention and therapeutic purposes.
My greatest area of interest in my work is to understand and respect every client I treat as individuals. We all possess unique physical, physiological and psychological characteristics; therefore it is essential that treatment be tailored to accommodate each client’s requirements. I like to consider myself as a 'musculoskeletal detective' as it is my aim to problem-solve the clients reason for visiting, by recovering a restored and balanced body.
For those of you that don’t know me yet, I look forward to meeting you all!
