I am an experienced sports masseur, rehabilitation specialist, runner, triathlete and running coach and have been a member of North Shields Poly for over 15 years. I have been involved in teaching and coaching athletics for a number of years from reception aged children through to adults and veterans.
After a number of years working in Primary education I am now working full time in sports massage therapy, coaching and rehabilitation from my base in Whitley Bay and at various other locations along the coast.
I am a fully qualified Sports Massage Therapist and a member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists.
I have full DBS clearance and am able to work with clients of all ages, I am a UKA Qualified Running Coach (CiRF) and have a Level 4 Award as an Endurance Performance Specialist. I am a Trustee and Senior Coach at North Shields Poly and am a specialist in Movement and Posture.
I have considerable experience in working with clients with a wide range of issues and have a particular specialism in dealing with back and neck issues including sciatica and running and sport injuries.
During your consultation we will discuss your expectations and needs and I will create a treatment and rehabilitation plan to assist with your recovery.
When massaging I will use a number of techniques to work on areas of tension and congestion such as effleurage, petrissage, friction, tapotement, deep tissue & soft tissue massage, myofascial release, postural alignment and trigger points therapy.
I am always happy to be contacted to answer any questions you may have.
