” Superb massage by Kate today.
The clinic is such a peaceful place you feel relaxed and in good hands as soon as you walk through the door.
I do quite a lot of running/cycling/weights classes and my body felt really tight and stiff.
After my treatment I felt like marching home legs felt so light and stretchy !!!!
Thanks Kate I will certainly be recommending you. ”
” I recently had a massage from Kate which has had a terrific effect on not only my physical but also mental well-being. Kate assessed my needs very thoroughly and pinpointed the areas requiring the most treatment very precisely. Having recently changed my diet, lost weight and improved my strength and fitness i was aware of my body being tight and in need of some loosening and stretching. Kates massage made me feel like I had a new body and two inches taller (in my dreams anyway!) ”
” I have been receiving body massage for approximately the last eighteen months. I have found the treatment extremely therapeutic – it has relieved a very painful neck and shoulders, which I have suffered with for a long time. It also leaves me with a tremendous sense of well being. I have also been treated with MLD and have found that it has helped me to clear infected sinuses, where in the past I have had to r3esort to medication. The MLD has improved the condition of my skin, helping to get rid of the puffiness which we all suffer from at times. I feel that regular treatments are important, helping me to prevent these painful conditions from developing in the first place. “

This year she is hoping to finish her training and qualify as a health coach and is also currently completing a course in trauma and the effect it has on the body and mind.

Siobhan’s skills as a Sports and Massage Therapist include deep tissue massage, rehabilitation exercises, Pilates exercises, spinal manipulation therapy and specific soft tissue mobilisations.
Since completing her BSc Degree in Sports Therapy at the University of Central Lancashire, Siobhan has gained experience in both private practice and sports settings, and has helped a broad range of clients from international karate champion winning the European title, to helping clients with back pain who want to be able to up their physical activity and feel great again.
Siobhan adopts a well-rounded, holistic approach to treating client’s pain, exploring multiple avenues, and has since gone on to study other areas that she is passionate about, including nutrition and mindset coaching. She also has a keen interest in how pain becomes chronic and the impact on the brain and nervous system.
Using these principles Siobhan will work closely with you to not only decrease your pain but also that it will not keep occurring as soon as you are back to doing what you love.
On your initial visit to Siobhan, she will firstly sit and listen to you, as this is a vital step to piecing together what has brought your pain to the stage it is at today. Next, she will take you through a series of orthopaedic tests, with the aim to assess your overall function, not just the area where it hurts! This will include looking at the range of movement of your joints and the strength of individual muscles, as well as screening for any specific injury to the soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and tendons.
Throughout all of your visits Siobhan’s aim is to explain what is going on in a way that you understand and to continue to educate you, as well as provide treatment, giving you long lasting results and helping you to engage in a healthy lifestyle into the future.
Siobhan strongly believes that working with a Sports and MassageTherapist should not just be about your pain, but addressing how this can be having an impact on many other areas of life, and therefore ultimately it should help you reach your potential and thrive again.
When Siobhan is not in the clinic, she loves to push herself! Siobhan has completed half marathons, marathons and in the last couple of years has been introduced to triathlon. For some rest and relaxation however, she loves to spend time with her Dachshund and get stuck into a good book.
