Meet Johanna

A life-long outdoor sports enthusiast, but also a long-time carrier of the symptoms of degenerative cartilage in multiple joints, I have always been interested in the human body and its reactions, physical and emotional, to physical therapy and massage. In a family where my father, both of my sisters and I all had bad backs from teenage years, massage has had a significant role in my life. I have first-hand understanding of getting locked into a cycle of pain/loss of mobility that can profoundly impact your physical and emotional well-being, but, happily, have also experienced how massage can help you through this.

After gaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and a Master of Science degree in Sports Nutrition, I have worked as both a physiologist and nutritionist for athletes (Amateur Boxing Association of England) and in commercial research settings (Unilever Research). I’ve also spent a large part of my life sitting at a desk writing about pharmaceuticals, and I know that no matter how much advice you may receive to 'get up and walk about every hour', it's just never realistic in a busy job. I am definitely the (not proud) owner of 'office shoulders' most days!

I received a distinction in my ITEC Sports Massage diploma and am really pleased to use my skills to help anyone who needs help to get back mobility, recover from injury or relieve the muscle tensions of every day life. The soft tissue techniques learned in the Sports Massage diploma are useful in a wide range of settings, including:

  • relieving muscle tension, eg, in the tight shoulders and lower back of a desk-bound office worker
  • providing pre- or post-event massage for an athlete wishing to optimise performance and recovery
  • helping a gym goer who has picked up a niggling muscle injury
  • speeding recovery from acute joint injury such as a sprained ankle or chronic conditions such as ‘tennis elbow’
  • reducing stress levels

I am also pleased to discuss general lifestyle changes that can help you on your way to being the best version of yourself. I look forward to helping you on your way.......
