Sports Massage Therapist
I developed an interest in soft tissue therapy (sports and remedial massage) after watching a loved one suffer debilitating chronic lower back pain. Despite trying all types of therapies and medical intervention, this was the only therapy that offered sustained relief. I found it’s core concepts interesting and benefitted myself after minor sporting injuries. I decided to take an introductory course in my spare time. A week later I had signed up to a year long sports and remedial massage course and developed quite a fascination with the human body as well as the biomechanics of pain.
Eight years on, it’s my full time job. Every week I see something new, making one mode of intervention not quite enough. This has pushed me to expand my tools of trade to fascial release, medical acupuncture, spinal manipulation and pilates. Not only do I seek to have my client’s walk out better than when they walk in, I also seek to make them aware of the reasons for their discomfort and the little changes they can make to reduce the risk of injury and recurring. This could be anything from common training errors (bad form) to how to carry your child or even sit at your desk. My clients therefore range from professional sports people (rugby, football, athletics, ballet, etc) to the average stay at home mum and office worker with (and without) a sporting habit.
Here’s what my clients have said:
To Wimbledon Therapy Rooms – You should be made aware, if you are not already, that you have arguably the best sports injury therapist, Jambaal, in your clinic. She cured in two sessions what my physio couldn’t even make a difference with in over ten. Two weeks ago my back was so bad I couldn’t put my shoes on, and could barely get out of bed or open a door. I am now going to the gym and doing weights, cardio, everything. I’m delighted to have found her.” Nick Bowman – Finance Trader
Being sports active but older (50s) meant that I have a specific set of muscular problems as well as an impending spinal operation. Jambaal has a very knowledgeable and intuitive way of dealing with those and always leaves me feeling relaxed. I am suprised at the way she knows immediately what muscle group to target. Highly recommended. Ian Smith – Surveyor, 3rd Dan Taekwondo
