I am the owner and therapist at BIA Sports Therapy UK.
I run the business from a treatment room at Total Sports Therapy where I see clients privately. I am also available for event massages such as marathons, triathlons, rugby tournaments, martial arts competitions and training events and more.
Having gained an honors degree in Sport Science I followed a career which led me to being a Police Officer. After having a child, I was able to re-train as a Sports Massage Therapist. I have also gained further training in sports strapping and taping and pregnancy massage treatments to benefit my clients.
From my personal experiences of participating in a variety of sports and fitness disciplines and from my training, I aim to provide all my clients with friendly and professional massage treatments. As a Mum of a pre-schooler I also have very fresh experience of pregnancy and all the aches and pains it can bring, I aim to provide all my Mum to Be clients with a relaxing treatment to help them enjoy their pregnancy more.
A combination of my therapy work, personal experience and knowledge as a sports scientist, I have gained a growing passion for educating people on Pelvic Floor awareness. Please ask me if you have concerns and we can discuss which exercises would be best to help you.
I now teach swimming to pre-school children alongside my work as a therapist, I am an ASA Level 2 Swimming Teacher and a life long competitive swimmer.
