Sports Massage Therapist
- Sports Massage Therapy - Level 3
- Personal Training - Level 2 and 3
- Kinesio taping for massage therapy
From a younger age, Millie knew she wanted to be a physiotherapist. At age 16, Millie completed her sports massage qualification and loves the role 8 years on.
"I love the challenge and how every person that comes into the clinic is unique and pushes me to be better at what I do. My favourite part is trying to understand what may have caused a patient's injury, what muscles are involved etc. The way the body moves fascinates me!"
Millie often works with clients suffering from tight upper back and neck tension, frequently from working at a desk or in front of a computer for long periods of time.
Millie is an athlete who competes internationally for Great Britain in Alpine Skiing, in which she has retained her World Champion title. Millie also received an honorary Doctorate from the University when she was 18, which is one of her favourite achievements.
In her free time, Millie competes for England in karate, and attends university and training, which doesn't leave much time for other things, however, she always finds time for her dog!
Sports Massage Therapist
Mark has been practising as a sports massage therapist since 2016. Following in his father's footsteps, he quickly saw how effective sports massage could be, as a young middle-distance runner, he received regular treatment that kept him in peak condition and injury free.
Qualifying as a level 4 sports massage therapist in 2018, he has since completed a wide range of training programmes, including kinesiology taping, ultrasound and shockwave therapy. In addition, Mark now teaches level 3 and 4 sports massage therapy at a training provider in Kent.
Mark's interests include spine and knee injuries, which he finds to be the most common areas of dysfunction and injury that he encounters in patients.
As a therapist, Mark's biggest achievement is working with world light-welterweight boxing champion Josh Taylor while working at the university in 2019.
"He was preparing for the fight that would ultimately make him a superstar, and I feel privileged to have played a small part in helping him achieve that."
In his spare time, Mark enjoys weightlifting, playing Playstation, and spending time with his young family.
