I am qualified with a Level 5 BTEC diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage/Soft Tissue Therapy from The London School of Sport and Remedial Massage (LSSM). LSSM is the leading school in the UK teaching Soft Tissue Therapy and Sport and Remedial Massage.
The course takes 12 months and requires you to obtain knowledge and proficiency in anatomy, a number of different soft tissue techniques and the ability to assess (both visually and through touch/palpation) dysfunctional muscles tone and postural imbalances. The course includes written and practical assessments.
I am a member of the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage and I have professional indemnity cover.
I have a law degree (LLB) from the University of Leeds and I qualified and worked as a solicitor. I worked in the City in a number of roles for nearly 20 years prior to becoming a soft tissue therapist.
