From an early age, sport and fitness played a big part in my life. I played netball and tennis to a good standard, and was lucky enough to represent and captain Dorset at junior cricket. A serious hip injury put paid to ambitions of going into the RAF, but having already gained numerous fitness industry qualifications, I trained to become a Sports Remedial Massage Therapist. I qualified in 2009 from the prestigious London School of Sports Massage and started my own business, New Forest Sports Massage, the same year. Since then I’ve treating local athletes and patients, providing them with a service that improves their performance and reduces pain. I strive to keep on top of current trends, immersing myself in new theories and improving my knowledge by constantly adding to my qualifications.
As a massage therapist with added skill I can add Osteopathic Manipulation to your session. Joint manipulation is a procedure applied to a specific joint to help restore normal movement. This is when sometimes you will hear a ‘click’ within the joint this is a release of gas, Overall the joint will then be able to slide and glide and pain will ease.
As a massage therapist with added skill I can add Medical Acupuncture to your session. MA is an invasive procedure where fine needles are inserted through the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point (a contraction of knots). This is not an injection and is used to treat musculoskeletal pain. MA can help with any manifestation of musculoskeletal pain (pain that affects the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones)

Areas around a joint
Tendonitis (Tennis elbow, golfers elbow, Achilles)
Poor posture or prolonged Immobilization
