Sports Masseur, MFHT
Andrew joined us at the start of 2017 and has been greatly received by both existing and new clients alike. He is a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).
As a keen practitioner over the past 30 years of the martial art of Aikido Andrew had experienced the benefits of shiatsu and makka-ho, (a Japanese form of massage and stretching), in helping him with his sport. From this stemmed an interest in massage and it's benefits which led him to enrol at the Thai School of Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2010 where he gained a Diploma in Thai Massage.
Upon his return to the UK Andrew further increased his knowledge and skill set by enrolling at the Royal National College for the Blind & Visually Impaired in Hereford. Here he completed an ITEC residential course in remedial and holistic sports therapies. This resulted in Andrew gaining a Level 3 Certificate in Sports Massage and ITEC Diplomas in Holistic Massage (Swedish), On-Site Chair Massage and Reflexology.
Andrew has been a masseur for the NFTO Pro Cycling Team at a training camp providing post event massage following training tours. He has also provided his services at various charity events giving experiences in reflexology and on-site chair treatments to members of the public.
