Graduated from North London School of Sports Massage (NLSSM) with a BTEC level 5 Diploma and a fully qualified member of the Sports Massage Association (SMA).
Liz has supported many sporting charity events including the London Marathon for the British Heart Foundation, The Prudential 100 mile bike ride for Anthony Nolan Trust and many more shorter races for various charities, this enabled the participant’s to have a much needed massage to aid achy muscles and a quicker recovery. She has also completed a course for gait analysis from Roehampton University and finds this a useful tool for observation and possible diagnosis.
Liz is not only actively involved in sport, she has also worked at the London Telegraph Office where she looked after journalists and fellow office workers who suffered from various day to day posture issues and repetitive strain injuries, working alongside the resident physiotherapist enabled us to give great results.
Continued professional development (CPD) includes a physiotherapy seminar with the London Knee Specialists at the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth, also gained an advanced kinesiology Rock Tape certificate at both level 1 and 2 via the British School of Osteopathy.
Liz comes from a very sporting background having run many half and full marathons, her sporting interested now expands to triathlon where she has completed sprint distance up to full Ironman and has represented Great Britain in long distance as an age group athlete.
It is through physical and competitive nature of her life style that she has become acutely aware of the importance of and benefits gained from looking after one’s body and finding the route cause rather than a symptom.
Her treatment’s centre around re-aligning muscle length and reducing hypertonic muscles through the application of various massage techniques including, Soft Tissue Release (STR) Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) Muscle Energy Technique (MET) Trigger Point Therapy (TPT) Myofascial Release – direct and indirect, shearing and thumb rolling, amongst others. Liz also focuses on aftercare and is a firm believer in encouraging and enabling her clients to take responsibility for their own health outside the clinic, thereby achieving their goals successfully as quickly as possible.
The driving force behind Liz’s treatments are the fact that she has had first-hand experience of injury and not being able to compete and go that extra mile is the most frustrating thing for a sports person.
