Sports Massage and Remedial Therapy
For both sports people and anyone wishing to prevent or recover from a soft tissue injury.
About Mary Brooking
I have a BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma in Sports Massage and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy from the North London School of Sports Massage (NLSSM) and am a member of the SMA (The Association for Soft Tissue Therapists).
I am a keen runner, outdoor swimmer, triathlete and cross-country & telemark skier and have participated in many events, including marathons and a half ironman triathlon, and have experienced first hand the benefits sports massage can bring to endurance athletes.
I have treated a wide variety of clients with soft tissue issues arising from sport, posture, work/desk setup, common accidents such as sprained ankles and overuse injuries. I use a range of soft tissue therapy techniques including massage, soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques and myofascial release.
I work with my clients to understand their goals and expectations which range from reducing pain and restoring movement to sporting performance goals. I communicate clearly how, and to what extent, soft tissue therapy could form part of achieving those goals. I have excellent listening skills and extensive experience in problem solving, analysis and attention to detail from a previous career in financial services which help me deliver very client focused treatments.
Mary has magic hands! I have been to see Mary for various muscle issues over a few months and she has managed to get rid of each one and they have stayed away! I would highly recommend Mary to anyone, she is kind, gentle and gets to the root of the issue fast and efficiently.
