A BIT ABOUT ME...
My name is Gemma.
Soft Tissue Therapist, MSc, CTHA, ISRM.
Rehabilitation and Injury Specialist.
I am fascinated by the human body, it's ability to move, adapt, heal and especially how it reacts to pain and stress.
I have a passion for health and wellness; a desire to spread awareness and education on how to best use the body as a fully functioning tool for life.
I have a history of working as a Personal Trainer in a variety of corporate gyms across London.
I further trained as an Exercise Physiologist, educating individuals on testing markers of physical and mental health, educating on healthy living, wellness, disease prevention, fitness, stress reduction and promoting overall wellbeing.
I had always had a burning desire to train in massage and on the very first day of my initial massage course, there was a literal lightbulb *ding!* moment, whereby I just knew that bodywork was my calling!
Now I run my own business, in Soft Tissue Therapy and movement education, treating a whole variety of clients from the sedentary to the international athlete, based at The Commando Temple, a world-class training facility (www.bestronger.co.uk) in Deptford, South-East London, specialising in Calisthenics, Strongman and Martial Arts (to name a few).
