TLS Sports Massage and Remedial Therapy was founded in 2015 when I began studying at Oxford School of Sports Massage (OSSM). I was in my last year as an Environmental Health Practitioner (EHP) in HM Forces, The Royal Army Medical Corps. The first year I attended a lot of event work with Athletes Angels to help improve my experience and expand my knowledge base even further before letting myself “loose” on the general public.
I am an accomplished well rounded experienced Team Leader with a background in Army Health and its diversities with multinational multi cultural awareness from a variety of ventures in different environments. Also an effective enabler, problem solver and skilled communicator committed to ensuring the safety of the work-place. I am a knowledgeable and tenacious individual with an affability to be pragmatic.
I know my limitations and refer as necessary. I love the ethos the Forest of Dean Therapists have. We all collaborate under Forest Wellbeing, including Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Neurokinetics, Physical Trainers, Acupuncturists and many Holistic Therapists.
I am passionate about people and helping them feel better. My business is growing beyond expectation and my personal development as a result is also expanding.
I also do a lot of work with Rugby For Heroes and had the honour to be their specialist for the last 2 years on the Armistice 100 and 300 ride, getting group of Cyclists, including Ex Pro and Military rugby players across France on bicycles which was a fun challenge. I support the matches and courses where my diary allows.
I have in the last 4 years seen a lot of injuries and helped achieve a more rapid recovery than most of them expected. I treat a vast range of disciplines being the only Soft Tissue Therapist to date in the Forest of Dean. The majority of referrals are word of mouth. I do a lot of business networking and at various sports clubs around the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean.
