Rebecca in a nutshell

Before becoming a sports therapist, Rebecca spent the majority of my time in a swimming pool as an elite swimmer. Rebecca competed at several major competitions in the UK and internationally, whilst training near to 24 hour per week in the pool and the gym. Due to being a high performing athlete, she was no stranger to sports related injuries and fatigue, and so became extremely well acquainted with the physiotherapy and massage room. At this time, Rebecca was studying for a BSc in Sports Performance at University of Bath and had a strong interest and passion for treating people. Since a big injury, it fired an enthusiasm to healing and treating people experiencing pain and so she went on and trained as a level 3 and then level 4 sports therapist at the University of Bath.

What Rebecca likes

Although her swimming career has come to a close, Rebecca still remains very active. She attends CrossFit sessions every morning and enjoys cycling to work. Rebecca has an incredibly soft, but hyper Rottweiler that keeps her on my toes, and she love to go on long walks in the country side at the weekend with him and her partner. Rebecca is deeply interested in nutrition and health, and has a passion for how we can incorporate to rehabilitation on a daily basis as part as a healthy lifestyle.

Rebecca's approach

The approach Rebecca adopts is to listen to the symptoms, asses the area of concern, treat the issue as well as finding the route cause for the patients pain. She begins by working deep into the muscle, warming and stretching each fibre to increase blood flow and circulation. Applying pressure to trigger points of the body to get a positive response to the massage, as well as reducing the pain. Rebecca's treatments are for all patients who may be experiencing any stress, tension or injury.
