New Massage Therapist
Understanding the value that massage can give our patients, we have finally found a new Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist to join our teams at the Sherwood and Oaklands Chiropractic Clinics. Abby trained at the Oxford School of Sports Massage, qualifying with a BTEC Level 5 in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy.
“Having been involved in performing arts all my life, I studied Contemporary Dance Performance at York St John University. Deciding that my greatest interest lay in the human body and it’s physiological achievements, after 3 years in York I headed back home to Birmingham and began studying for an MSc in Dance Science, graduating in 2012. It was the study of dancers as athletes that really inspired me to pursue a career in Sports Massage, and as I progressed through my training I discovered my love of working with all kinds of people.
Since qualifying I have been lucky enough to work with both sporting and non-sporting professionals, in clinic, private and event settings. These included office workers, engineers, tradesmen, teachers, musicians, actors, dancers, horse riders, retired professionals and post-operative patients… to name a few!
I am a member of the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage (ISRM) and enjoy attending regular courses to keep my brain active and help me develop my technique. Having first-hand experience of both chiropractic and massage, I love how the two can work so well together and I am really excited to join this established and well respected clinic.”
