I have lived in market Weighton for five years and have been interested in physiological performance which lead me to study Sports Massage Therapy(level 4) at Selby college in 2010, after completing a swedish massage and anatomy and physiology course the previous year. For my sports massage therapy course I had to complete 100 hours of treatments from a minimum of 12 people with differing problems that covered back, leg, shoulders and neck.
I am keen on most sports, but have a real passion for cycling and participating in time trials and track racing. This contact with cycling has brought many cyclists to my clinic suffering with mainly lower back and hip pain.
I also work with Skirlaugh rugby league club on training nights and match days, which gives me great satisfaction and broadens my understanding of injuries that happen during matches.
