Jacqui Reidel

Fully qualified level 3 Sports Massage Therapist through Sports Therapy UK. Fully insured through BGI.

Jacqui also holds qualifications in medical acupuncture/dry needling, myofascial cupping, pregnancy massage and kineosiolgy taping.

Jacqui been heavily involved in sport for the past 24 years, in-particular, rowing and latterly CrossFit.

Jacqui was a rower in the British team for 10 years where she achieved a number of National and International titles. Her greatest achievement’s as a rower was becoming an Under 23 World Champion and double Youth Olympic Champion. After retiring from rowing she turned to rowing coaching where she was the head coach at a well known University. Alongside coaching, she took up CrossFit in 2016 and fell in love with a new sport! During this time I have developed a wealth of knowledge on what it takes to be a successful sports person and coach, and the well-being of athletes is essential to any kind of performance.

Jacqui first had a taste of sports massage at college many years ago and once she decided she wanted to move on from the rowing world more recently, sports massage therapy was an obvious career path for her. Jacqui completed her training with Sports Therapy UK and is continuing to develop her knowledge through further training.

“I enjoy supporting people to be the best version of themselves, and very much have that in the forefront of my mind when treating my clients.
In my eyes, sports massage therapy is as much about maintenance as it is injury support. Nipping “niggles” in the bud before they turn into injuries is very much what I believe in and what I strive to achieve with my clients. If the unfortunate does happen and you develop an injury, I am here as part of your rehabilitation plan to help to get you back up to full fitness.”

Alexander Romich

I’ve been in the sports massage/therapy industry for 8+ years and trained with Sports Therapy UK in 2017. I have experience dealing with structural related injuries such as skeletal and spinal problems and affected tissues such as ligaments, tendons and nerves which can be the result of injuries from  work, exercise, accident-related trauma or a consistent chronic problem. I perform deep tissue massage with a variety of Manual Therapy techniques I have learnt in my current education of Osteopathy (BsOC) with the College of Osteopaths at Staffordshire University, allowing a different approach to achieve recovery. I am also able to perform special orthopedic testing for a diagnosis of the suspected tissue-causing symptom and provide a specific treatment plan. Apart from treating and diagnosing various musculoskeletal problems I can help with the management of systemic dysfunctions such as autoimmune, degenerative, neurological and circulatory diseases. I also offer effective pre and post op treatment for structural replacement to promote a quicker more effective recovery.

My interests are keeping active at the gym as much as I can. When the weather is nice I dabble in Traditional Archery using the Mongolian Horse Bow. Before all the lockdown began I rather enjoyed horse riding; the aim is to eventually merge archery and horse riding together solidifying the theory I was born a couple of centuries late. In the end though a nice wind down can always be accompanied by my games console.
