Kirsty is our Graduate Sports and Scar Work Therapist. She holds a BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy Degree and qualifications in Sports Massage, Medical Acupuncture, Kinesiology Taping, Reflexology, Ayurvedic Face massage and Scar Work. Kirsty has worked with athletes and the general public alike, with clients ranging from professional sports people, to weekend warriors, to busy people who just need to keep their bodies injury free.
As part of the sports massage team at LONDON 2012 Olympics, and during her time with local rugby teams, she understands the importance of avoiding injury when possible, and rehabilitating as quickly as possible should injury occur. Through treating busy people who use their bodies for work (such as builders, plasterers and tree Surgeons), she understands the demands of physically demanding work, and aims to treat in order to keep dysfunction at bay.
The focus of Kirsty's approach is education. Empowering patients to understand and manage their injury independently is truly how results are obtained, and more importantly, maintained. Treatments call on a combination of soft tissue massage, fascial work, trigger point therapy and manual therapy (joint/spinal mobilisations), as well as Kinesiology taping, medical acupuncture and scar work when clinically appropriate.
Rehabilitation exercises are given when appropriate, to enhance recovery through exercise therapy. Access is given to a web-based physiotherapy rehabilitation platform. Reflexology & Ayurvedic Face Massage treatments are available for stress management.
