Hannah completed her Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Sports Therapy at Active Health Group in Manchester, following her BPA Hons Degree in Contemporary Dance.
Hannah’s interest in becoming a Sports Therapist was sparked when she received treatment for her own injury sustained during her dance training. Having experienced how beneficial that style of treatment was, she wanted to learn how to help others experiencing physical pains and difficulties.
At the clinic, Hannah has a specialised interest in Myofascial release, which helps to maintain healthy and mobile connective tissue in the body. You can find out more about the role that fascia plays in the body during a treatment!
Outside of the clinic, Hannah works as a Sports Therapist and pitch-side First Aider for Rugby teams. She has worked in Union and League seasons since 2015, helping both men’s and women’s teams.
Hannah also works for Official Sports Services who provide sports massage treatments to professional sports teams travelling in the UK.
