Tracy’s passion for supporting people with a wide range of health issues and mobility problems drove her to become a fully qualified Sports Massage Therapist. “Since I started on my sports massage journey, I have been truly amazed by the effects it can have on people both physically and psychologically…. I would have trained years ago if I knew how amazing it can be!” Sports massage is a unique treatment than can reduce muscle tension & pain, promote good posture & flexibility, restore mobility and importantly, help prevent injury. Restoring mobility to injured muscle tissue may boost performance and extend the overall life of your sporting interests.
Out of work, Tracy enjoys keeping fit and is an established rock climber with a husband, 2 step children and 4 dogs. A true ‘outdoorsy girl’ she can often be found wild camping somewhere remote or hanging off a cliff somewhere in France.
