In the not too distant past I decided I needed a new challenge. I wanted to learn something new and do something i felt was worthwhile, something I had a passion for. I was highly interested in the human body and loved to help people so I decided massage and rehabilitation was for me.
At the beginning of 2015 I began my Sports Massage Diploma, studying at college outside of my full time job and I qualified at the beginning of 2017.
I had the added bonus of my brother Andy opening The Strength Factory in October 2015. This gym has an amazing atmosphere, great members and trainers with knowledge that is second to none; and it was spending time in this environment that supported my decision to change my career path, knowing I could maybe one day be a part of such a fantastic team and gym…..And here I am.
Along with Gav I am a part of the rehabilitation team and I can perform treatments including the following:
Deep tissue massage
Rehabilitation and stretching techniques
Remedial / Maintenance massages
Taping & strapping
Plus much more…..
During my diploma I was employed by Rochdale Hornets Rugby League club for two seasons as a massage and rehabilitation assistant. It was an amazing opportunity that helped me further my knowledge and experience. During my time I came across many different injuries ranging from dislocated shoulders, broken bones, muscle damage and general sore bodies. Seeing for myself how the body recovered and learning how to rehabilitate injuries went from general curiosity to a passion. The end result of having the player back on the field free from injury is what made this the best decision I have ever made and the reason I love my job. No stone will be left unturned and we will do all we can to have you injury and pain free.
So if you have any questions, aches, pains, injuries or just a general need for a massage to loosen you off and enhance your performance please email me on and I will be happy to discuss your needs.
