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, react to pain and stress, heal and grow.
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, and 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 from that moment, body work 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, one of the best gyms in London, specialising in Calisthenics, Powerlifting and Strongman (to name a few).
I use a variety of massage techniques, exercise tools and education suitable to the individual; working with those that value their body and want to optimise their performance whether it be for pain-free movement for daily affairs; exercise for leisure and health; or whether you are a competitor/athlete, only aiming to optimise your health and wellbeing, physically and mentally.
