Hello, my name is Rich and my passion is to help people like you to move better, feel better and perform better. Ultimately keeping you pain free.
I have always had an interest in sports injury and rehabilitation and decided to go into treating others after a long string of injuries and operations, which kept myself sidelined from the competitive sports I loved. I was disappointed with the therapy that I received after my own injuries and wanted to provide a high level of care to others, which I did not receive myself.
I still participate in competitive sports and have a background of playing football, hockey, martial arts, weight lifting and American football where I played for the London Blitz who have over the past few years won repeated national championships. I understand what its like to play at a high level and knows first hand how important it is to perform at the best of your ability. I truly believe that having the right therapy could mean the difference between winning and losing!
The injuries I have suffered over the years has also given me a good insight into how my own clients feelings and mindset. I know just how vital getting them back to performing at the top of their game really is.
I started off by training in level 5 sports massage with the prestigious North London School of Sports Massage (NLSSM) and I was then keen to learn the best techniques there were which includes Active Release Techniques® and something that really helped myself get injury free and back to competitive sport. Its an exciting feeling being able to offer the gold standard in soft tissue treatment to others.
I’m an assistant instructor with kihealth concepts teaching students about and how to use Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation, I have been using tools in both a gym and clinical environment for around the past 8 years.
I have worked with elite and professional athletes, people of all ages and walks of life. I also regularly work with local sports teams and am currently personal training and carrying out treatments with several teams in the Cambridgeshire FA County league.
