Having spent 32 years in a professional career it was time for a change. I have always been interested in sport and have endured many injuries that have received treatment of varying degrees. I thought that sports injury massage would be something I could do as I had so much experience from the client perspective and had a good idea what I would want from a practitioner.

I set out doing an anatomy and physiology course online and then attended the ASCT course. I was rather nervous as I hadn't been in an educational environment for many years. I found the course informative and run with enthusiasm and a passion for quality of practice.

I qualified in September 2014 and started out setting up my own clinic from home. I also work at a local leisure centre a couple of days a week. Almost a year on I am now starting to see steady growth in my business and have embarked on further specialist courses to enhance my practice.

ASCT gave me the perfect platform to start out on a new career. The enthusiasm of the instruction and the relaxed environment was just right for my own development.
