This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make particularly as I have had the honour of working with such an amazing team of staff and have the most wonderful clients some of whom I now class as friends! I am sad to announce that I will be taking a year out from my role as a sports massage therapist a role I both love and one that puts me in the most unique position of helping people from all walks of life with their pain and injuries! So for now it’s goodbye while I take some much needed family time and time for myself to recover from some ongoing health issues. It’s time for me to practice what I preach in taking care of my mind and body. Thank you to everyone for being understanding and most of all to my chiropractic family for their continued support.
Having always had a keen interest in both Sport and how the body works it seemed the logical step for Kerry to take when she made the decision to change careers following running a successful business working with people affected by drugs and alcohol issues. She had had first-hand experience of sustaining injuries and became frustrated with not just her own body, but also the treatment she was receiving. She was fortunate to eventually come across two modalities which had amazing results the first being chiropractic the second being massage. The great thing was that they both complement each other. She has a real passion for Sports Massage and the results and effects it has both psychologically and physiologically. “I am continuously impressed with how effective it is on the clients I treat.” Over the last 3 years she has been working and training in the health and fitness field to gain as much experience as possible to benefit the clients she treats. Kerry qualified as a Sports Massage therapist in 2014 and has further qualified in being able to treat sports injuries. She holds a Level 4 VTCT in Sports Massage and continues to develop her skill set. Currently she is working towards being a fully qualified neuromuscular therapist having already completed Level 1 in Neuromuscular Therapies and is seeing the huge benefits this has on patients. She has recently had the privilege of training with a top physiotherapist who has experience in treating world class Olympic athletes and many celebrities in advanced taping and event massage techniques. Over the last few years Kerry has worked at varying events such as the Great North Run, The Great North Bike Ride and the triathlon attempts by various charities. She has also been very fortunate to have provided sports massage for Durham County Cricket Club and for the Scottish Rugby World Cup team whilst they were based in Newcastle.     Make an Appointment
