Sports Massage Therapist

 

Clemmie ForresterClemmie studied Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy at the North London School of Sports Massage achieving a BTEC Level 5 in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy.

I became interested in sports massage after joining local triathlon club Team Trident and picking up an ankle injury after increasing my training load. I wanted to learn more about preventing injury and making myself stronger and more adaptable to changes in exercise.

I approach each treatment by taking into account both what the patient is telling me and what their body is telling them. Sometimes the most important information is given to the therapist through the tissues. Having good detective skills and intuition to the soft tissue is very important.

Other therapists and my patients influence me to be open and continue to learn more as my career develops. Each individual brings a new challenge.

The most important advise I can give to my patients is to give your body time! Time to rest, time to recover and time to improve!
