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.

Chloe’s Story

Hi, I’m Chloe a BSc (Hons) sports and exercise therapy graduate from Leeds Beckett university. My experience and knowledges comes from working in the university’s massage and injury clinic treating musculoskeletal injuries and managing these.

During my time at University I also got first hands on experience in the sporting industry/ professional rugby clubs. My placement was with Bradford Bulls RLFC providing treatment plans and pre/post training/match day massages.

Growing up playing a lot of sports myself, I know how important it is to be feeling 100%. This is where my love and passion for sports therapy began and my main goal is to help people feel like themselves again.
