A little bit about Olive Massage

You can either visit us at our treatment room in Wakefield or, for an additional fee, our therapists can arrive at your home or work place with all of the necessary equipment such as massage bed, towels, oils etc.

The business is owned and managed by Lucy Cook. Having previously sold a successful massage and beauty salon in Selby, which she had owned for 7 years, Lucy decided that she wanted to specialise in massage therapy in her home town of Wakefield.

Lucy’s Story

Lucy’s interest in massage started over 10 years ago. After suffering a whiplash injury she began to suffer from chronic neck and shoulder pain which caused her to have daily tension headaches that began to affect her day to day living. After pursuing many avenues such as visits to doctors, physiotherapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors and osteopaths etc the pain remained, until Lucy discovered deep tissue massage. After her first massage session the pain began to ease almost immediately and after three sessions it was gone altogether. Lucy was so impressed by the benefits of massage that she left her career to train as a massage therapist.

Bethany’s Story

Hi, I’m Bethany. I graduated from York St John University in Sport and Exercise Therapy BSC Hons. During university I completed two years of student therapist volunteer work with York City Knights men’s championship side. This included massages, rehabilitation and pitch side attention at training and games.

Personally I have always been involved in sport predominantly as an athlete from international gymnastics to women’s super league rugby.

I am passionate about helping others to feel better by reducing muscular tension and relaxing/ increasing positive hormones to help reduce stress. Whether it’s been a long week at work or a tough session at the gym, massage can help in restoring muscle and health and wellbeing.

Hannah’s Story

Hi, I’m Hannah, a BSc (Hons) Sports and Exercise Therapy Graduate from Leeds Beckett University. I gained a lot of experience in Sports Massage and treating musculoskeletal injuries at Leeds Beckett University Massage & Injury Clinic, whilst also on placement with professional clubs, such as; Leeds Rhinos, Hunslet RLFC, Bradford City AFC. After graduating I continued to work with a rugby club proving massage Pre & Post training and helped out with massage at events such as the Great North Run. I recently completed a Masters degree in Sports
and Exercise medicine where I also gained The FA Level 4 Intermediate Trauma Medical Management in Football (ITMMiF), meaning I am qualified to provide pitch-side cover.

Outside my clinic work, I am an active individual and have participated in multiple sports throughout the years, such as netball, football and my most recent sport being rowing at university where I was the Club President. Due to being very active, I know what it is like to be injured or have aches and pains stopping you from exercising. That’s why my main goal as a Sports Therapist is to help clients get back to a good physical state as quickly as possible.
