I was very lucky to be featured in St George’s Reunite’s latest Spring addition. They do such an amazing job of keeping everyone informed about past and present students that went to St George’s College Weybridge and to be featured is a real honour. For those of you who are not an Old Georgian I have entered the article below for you to have a read. It is just a short extract as to what I did after leaving the school and some reasoning as to why I chose to do the job I love!
I hope you enjoy it.
“After leaving St Georges in 2013 I went on to get a 2:1 in my Sports Science degree from Swansea University. While I was in my final year at University, alongside my studies I completed a Sports Massage Diploma. I was interested in furthering my knowledge of human anatomy and wanted to understand how massage aids recovery and injury prevention. While completing the course I quickly realised that this was something I wanted to do as a career as I wanted to help others achieve their sporting goals or simply help ease their pain.
In September 2016, I set up my own Sports Massage Business. I decided to start working for a couple of companies, to gain as much experience as possible. During this time, I worked alongside Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths and other Massage Therapists, all of whom added to my knowledge of anatomy, physiology and how all of these treatments affect the musculoskeletal system.
In September 2017, one year after starting my business I found myself making a huge decision: to set up my own room at Locker 27 and become a self-sufficient massage therapist. Although the prospect was daunting, I knew that Locker 27 was a fantastic opportunity for me and it could not have been a greater success. The room is open to everyone, you do not need to be a member to book an appointment and the atmosphere of the gym is very welcoming and friendly. I hope that 2018 will continue as 2017 ended and look forward to the new adventures it may bring.”
