SL Massage Therapy - Sophy Maw, Sports Massage Therapist

Sophy has always been interested in the Anatomy and Physiology of the human body. After graduating from The University of Sunderland with a degree in Sport and Exercise Development she decided to increase her knowledge and education further by gaining a qualification in Sports Massage. This qualification not only taught her about Sports massage but also Swedish. After gaining experience through working with a Rugby team on training nights and offering Sports Massage to the runners of The Childrens Foundation Charity at The Great North Run she decided to pursue her career in this field.
After then researching the local area she also found there to be a lack of Pregnancy Massage on offer to help ladies through their pregnancy to aid the aches and pains that comes with it. After touching on Pregnancy Massage previously, she decided to take a full course and become qualified in it herself to help you ladies take care of yourself as well as bump!
