Katie used to work in online marketing before retraining in Soft Tissue Therapy a few years ago. She has always enjoyed learning about anatomy, the human body and playing sport and having spent a fair few years working in an office, decided its time was up. Katie can relate to desk-based injuries and issues relating to posture having regularly suffered lower back pain from her working environment. Katie is also a mum of 2 so is very aware of “mum” injuries, aches, pains and niggles. As well as having been a previous high level athlete in the past, in particular in swimming and netball, she has also played hockey, enjoyed mountain biking and is currently a keen rower. Having experienced 2 ACL regrafts amongst other smaller injuries, Katie has a fantastic all-round knowledge, understanding and appreciation for most people in most walks of life.
Sports Massage Bedford, Core Performance
Katie provided great care and rehab advice for my hamstring injury. She is very thorough and professional and took great care to understand the exact issues. I was able to make the appointments at my convenience and I would definitely recommend Katie from Body Restore Clinic and Sports Massage Bedford to anyone with muscle pain or sports injuries.
I found Katie to be knowledgeable and extremely proficient in dealing with my injures. I would highly recommend Katie for any treatment.
Sarah: Katie has great all-round knowledge. She successfully treated both myself for my neck problems from a bad desk set up, and my 16 year old daughter who is a netballer. She has great understanding of different people / body types. She showed both of us how to tape my daughter’s knees and ankles so we can do it ourselves now which has been invaluable.
