Get to know Vikki! Q&A
Why did you become a Sports Massage Therapist? After years of playing sport, training and occasionally being injured I always had an interest in how to get better, fitter, stronger and train more effectively. After giving up a career in I.T project management I decided it was time to put all those years of knowledge into practice and help others in achieving their goals and maintaining an active lifestyle.
Where would we find you in your spare time: usually in the gym, on a hockey pitch or a horse…occasionally buying a bag of haribo..or two!!
