Sports Therapy Background

Sophie graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2013 with a BSc (Hons) in Sports and Exercise Therapy. She is Highly qualified and has now had her own successful business for over 6 years

During her time at university she worked at the Leeds Met Injury Clinic where she was able to develop her skills as a sports therapist and masseur. She has completed work experience as a sports masseur over an extended period with Leeds Rhinos, a professional rugby league team working with professional athletes including international players.

Being involved in sport from a young age and having been injured, has shown Sophie the importance of sports massage and sports rehabilitation in the prevention and treatment of injuries and has inspired her to set up her own sports massage and rehabilitation business.

Sophie combines her intuitive attributes with professional skills to create individually tailored treatments for each client. She will always provide the client with the best treatment possible and work to their requirements.  Over the last 3 years Sophie has been able to grow her business even further by having her own clinic as her main base, however she does still offer a mobile service when needed. 

Sophie carries the necessary insurances required to practice and is a member of the Society of Sports Therapists.

 Triathlon Background

 Sophie has always been a competitive swimmer competing localy for Shrewsbury but also across the country.  Fancying a change after university she turned her head to triathlon. Sophie has been very competitive during the last 7 years and has represented GB at the World and European Age Group championships with her latest competition being the World Championships in Lausanne Switerland (2019).  

Sophie’s race distances of choice up untill 2020 has been the Sprint and Standard Distances, but having done 2x 70.3 middle distance races in the past she has decided that this will be her main focus for 2020 and hopefully will build a good endurance base through these events and be able to be competitive within the distance. 

With experience in some of the UKs biggest Triathlons, racing abroad and competing at many local events she can help athletes of all levels and experiences to realise their potential whatever the target event may be.

Combining Sophie’s Triathlon experience with her Sports Therapy background allows her to provide structured programs that push the clients to achieving their full potential whilst understanding the physical limits thus preventing and managing the injuries and physical stresses from which an athlete can suffer.
