Message Therapies and Pain Relief

My name is Alwyn, but most people call me Will.

I am a local Gloucestershire lad and I come from an active/sports background where in particular, rugby was my passion, and I played at a reasonable standard.                                        

Being first introduced to the benefits of soft tissue manipulation on a sports injury course in the military back in 1989, I knew that it was something that I wished to pursue as a career. So, soon after leaving the Military, I set out to gain the qualifications and experience to practise, whilst still working full time.

I have gained a wealth of experience, working with private individuals, sports clubs, professional referrals, and a loyal client base, who are all of different ages, professions, and abilities. So please don’t think that only sports people can benefit from massage therapies – I treat people from all walks of life with a wide range of issues. These could be work related repetitive strain injuries to trauma/impact recovery treatments. No two client needs are the same. And treatment plans are tailored to the individual’s needs.

I have a real passion for the Industry and take great pride and satisfaction in helping support people in achieving their goals or aiding them with their recovery.
