BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapy, London School of Sports Massage Diploma
I studied at The London School of Sports Massage where I qualified in Soft Tissue Therapy with a BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma.
Sports massage therapy uses deep tissue massage and soft tissue techniques to alleviate stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical and sporting activities. Where there are minor injuries or lesions occurring due to overexertion and/or overuse of muscles and the surrounding soft tissues, then these techniques help to break them down quickly and effectively, preventing these injuries from getting in the way of performance and achievement.
This treatment is not just for the sports person. Anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people with physically demanding jobs and those that involve occupational, emotional and postural stress that carry similar characteristics to sports injuries.
I have special interests in Martial Arts and Athletics and am a qualified karate instructor (Sensei) and level 1 referee and judging in karate. I have also competed in many competitions nationally and internationally. My best achievement was gaining double national champion title and double silver world medallist in 2015. I have also worked as a sports massage therapist for the squad internationally to Italy and Sardinia.
I also work for club athletes, mainly sprinters of which some compete at national level. My purpose with them is to loosen muscles, improve blood flow and reduce unnecessary stress, which in turn will improve performance and help to prevent injury.
