We are thrilled to announce that soon we will have a student joining us, who will be available to provide Sports and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy, as part of their student hours. Below is an introduction to student Sam Ellingham and Sports and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy as well as details on how to book an appointment.
What does this mean?
Students in physical therapy training often require clinic hours and additional experience before they complete their course. This helps them to apply their knowledge in a practical setting and allows you the opportunity to help a student to practise and support their advancement to qualify.
As an added bonus and to show our appreciation for your support, you can access this therapy at an affordable price and help towards the cost of a student’s placement.
What to expect
From Wednesday 27 February, you will be able to book an appointment for muscular aches and pains with a student that will soon be completing their final exams. The appointment will include a consultation, physical assessment and treatment, just as you would expect with a qualified Sports and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapist.
What is Sports and Soft Tissue Remedial Therapy
The ‘remedial’ in sports and remedial soft tissue therapy means applying manual therapy techniques to try to ‘remedy’ a problem with muscular aches and pains; to relieve pain and to prevent the problem reoccurring in the future. This doesn’t have to be due to a sporting injury. Following a thorough assessment, massage treatments are tailored to each individual to achieve the best results using a wide range of applications such as Muscle Energy Technique and Soft Tissue Release. A skilfully applied massage improves circulation and lymphatic flow and has a relaxing effect which should leave you feeling well and refreshed.
Meet the Student: Sam Ellingham
Prior to having children Sam worked in the busy equine world. Here she trained students for their British Horse Society career exams plus assessed NVQ candidates through their equine Levels. This was followed by Freelancing as well as running a small riding centre in her home village in Suffolk. Life took a different direction in 2014 when one of her children needed 24 hour care. Everything changed.
Now 5 years later Sam has found a new passion. Following her dreams Sam embarked on a year long course in Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Remedial Therapy. Her commitment to helping ease client pain with effective treatment skills is being realised as she approaches her final exams at the renowned North London School of Sport Massage. Sam is now seeking experience in a clinical environment in preparation towards her future career.
