Coming from a sporting background of amateur show jumping and Ironman triathlon, I found the transition to Sports Massage Therapy a natural progression.
After many years of working in an office, in 2019 I enrolled in VTCT Level 3 Sports Massage Therapy at South Eastern Regional College. Not stopping there, I carried on and completed VTCT Level 4 Sports Massage Therapy in 2020.
I found my new passion and progressed to opening my own business Peninsula Massage Therapy. Starting a new business can be daunting, however, it can be very rewarding.
Having a wide range of clients, not always from a sporting background, gives me total job satisfaction especially when I can offer a treatment that can help them get back to their sport, or just make everyday movement a little bit easier.
Massage has many benefits from helping athletes maintain their bodies, allowing them to perform and can also relieve stress and tension caused by everyday life.
After lockdown my client numbers increased dramatically due to the amount of stress that people were experiencing. Stress affects everyone in one way or another, but if you are like one of the millions of people who deal with it every day, you have got to manage it. One of the best ways to relieve stress and keep stress-hormone levels in control is to get regular massages.
Massage therapy also raises the body’s production and release of endorphins. These are stress and pain-preventing hormones that enhance mood and boost immunity. Reducing your stress levels will do wonders for your current mental and physical health while preventing potential diseases or stress-related conditions.
I continue to add to my massage learning toolkit, and to be part of a wider team that also shares a passion for helping the lives of others is a fantastic personal opportunity. 😊
