How long have you been practising?: since 2017
Please explain the service you provide in your own words:
My treatments are pragmatic and focused on the individual situation of the given client. This allows me to tailor my service to meet the needs of anyone: from new mums sore from carrying their baby to Ultramarathon runners with knee pain. I take pride in this flexibility and getting my clients pain free as efficiently as possible. The benefit of my sports science background is a knowledge of training principles, meaning that my service can be made suitable for athletes even in the days before (or even between) competitions.
In a standard session you can expect a general warm up of broad soft massage strokes. Moving on to a more targeted deep tissue approach honing in on trouble areas. If you are worried about sports massage being painful, don’t be! We can find a pressure that suits you and still get you some amazing benefits!
What's the best thing about what you do?: I get to meet heroes every single day! Hard working parents, powerlifting women, men who run further than anyone has a right to! Then I get to help them be even better at (or even get back to) what it is that makes them so amazing. Life is about the pursuit of meaning and what could be better than helping other succeed at their passion?
What excites you about working at Physio Effect?: The Physio Effect team is a young and ambitious team of intelligent and likeminded professionals. We all want to be the best at what we do. For me being surrounded by so much knowledge and passion is hugely rewarding, every day is a learning day when you are surrounded by such talent.
What are your dreams for your service within the company within the next year or so? I plan to expand upon the services I can offer Physio Effects awesome customers. But never losing focus on perfecting the skills I already have.
