Karen first trained as a Massage Therapist in 1997 and worked in Health Farms. With a keen interest in sport herself she completed the Level 3 Sports Massage qualification in 2007. As part of her continuing development and to gain her qualification she worked for two seasons at a local Rugby Club gaining valuable experience of pre and post massage. She also had the absolute honour of treating Morihiro Saito Sensei, the founder of the Martial Art Aikido when he visited the UK from Japan 3 years ago.
Karen has been at the Devizes practice for 8 years and has gained a wide client base. Treating not only sportsmen and women with injuries but those with problems irritated by occupations and hobbies. Long driving, desk work and gardening can cause a few issues!
Karen also works part-time in a Primary School as a PPA Sports Coach, delivering curriculum PE to Key Stage 1 & 2. With this comes continual development in all areas of sports and she has recently attained her Athletics Coaching License.
