It’s a Wednesday & I’d like to bring you some wonderful news!

I’m excited to announce that over the last 3 years I have worked very hard through Sports Therapy UK and with the support of my family and friends in order to achieve goals, which if I am honest with myself, I have had since I was a youngster.  I have SUCCESSFULLY PASSED my most recent qualifications, which now read:

  • VTCT Level 4 Sports Massage Award
  • Diploma in the Science and Application of Advanced Manual Therapy
  • VTCT Level 3 Sports Massage Diploma (passed Autumn 2017)

My qualifications are endorsed by the Register for Exercise Professionals (REPS) and entitle me to membership of The Sports Massage Association and also The Sports Therapy Association.  VTCT is a regulated qualification on Ofquals national framework and carries status internationally.

In order to pass these 3 qualifications, I have successfully passed:

  • 12 practical assessments
  • 2 oral exams
  • 2 case studies
  • Work experience
  • 2 theory exams

Within the courses I have covered many aspects including:

  • The science and practise of manual therapy
  • Advanced functional anatomy & physiology
  • Assessment of posture, joints, muscle imbalances and other conditions
  • Soft tissue trauma, assessment and how massage may help
  • Principles of injury management and injury rehabilitation
  • Active, assisted and advanced stretching techniques
  • Assessment of soft tissues and application of advanced techniques
  • Psychology and sports injuries

This means that I am now able to:

  • Assess posture, pelvic alignment, the spine and identify musculoskeletal imbalances
  • Following injury, advise on the healing and carry out assessment of soft tissues
  • Undertake advanced stretching techniques within the treatment room
  • Advise on the principles of injury management and rehabilitation from injury
  • Advise on soft tissue adaptation and the effects of immobilisation following injury
  • Use stretching techniques to mobilise and release specific soft tissue
  • Undertake connective tissue massage (myofascial release)
  • Undertake Spinal and peripheral Joint mobilisations
  • Assesses the need for fluid dynamic treatments including active muscle pump and lymph drainage

I know how hard I have had to work in order to achieve these qualifications and the sacrifices my family and friends have had to make as I’ve missed birthdays and anniversaries in order to complete them.  I am thrilled to be finally established as a reputable Sports Massage Therapist and now I am able to grow my business and really help clients achieve their goals in life.

Remember, Sports Massage isn’t just for those who partake regularly in Sport; life throws us many curveballs and with that comes aches and pains that we just can’t pin point.  Seeing a therapist can help move through those times and come out the other end stronger.

If you would like to book an appointment, please contact me here via my Facebook page or send an email to jen@softtissuetherapybyjenevans.co.uk; I endeavour to get back to you as soon as I can.

Have a wonderful day
