… gaining a Sports and Remedial Massage qualification to iTEC level 4.  She is a member of the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists). Soft tissue dysfunction can cause pain, discomfort, weakness, reduced mobility and postural deformities.  Taking part in sporting activities can create this dysfunction, however the most common causes tend to be the repetitive movements, injuries, stress, and poor posture that we experience in our every day lives.

Therefore, this type of complementary therapy can be hugely beneficial to most people, not just those who take part in sports!

Being trained to level 4, Tamara is qualified and insured to use a number of different techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body such as myofascial release, deep tissue massage, trigger point release, MET (muscle energy techniques) and STR (soft tissue release).

Tamara has a real love of sports, is a keen runner and leads a very active lifestyle.  The benefits she personally experienced from having Sports Massage treatments whilst training for her events heavily influenced her decision to train specifically in this type of complementary therapy and one of the many reasons she is so passionate about it.
