Sports Therapy – FROM 20th June


Lauren qualified as a sports therapist in 2007. She chose the human body as her main area of study in order to pursue a career that involved integrating and sustaining a healthy and functional lifestyle.

Her areas of expertise include:

  • Deep Tissue/Sports Massage
  • Sports Specific injuries
  • Acupuncture/Dry needling
  • Rehabilitation/Exercise prescription
  • Pre/post operative care
  • Injury and conditioning
  • Pre/Post Natal
  • Taping
  • PNF stretching

She also has experience working with clients who have acute to chronic pain, and those with sports injuries.

Lauren’s extensive knowledge of sport enables her to work very closely with healthy and injured athletes, including athletes possibly in transition.

A hands-on career was Lauren’s clear calling from the age of 16. When playing football and hockey at national level, she encountered many physiotherapists and sports physicians who failed to help her fully recover from some injuries. It was then she found her passion and decided she would study a similar field to help as many people she could in the future.

This study has been forged into a career lasting over 16 years, in which time she has provided treatment for the London Wasps rugby team and elite athletes such as professional footballers and tennis players, triathletes, F1 drivers, and Olympic lifters from all over the world. 7 years of that was working at one of the top sports clinics in London and before that 9 years in Dubai where she was privileged enough to work with both men/women of the royal family.

Having experienced her own fair share of injuries, including broken bones, ligament and tendon damage and a dislocated shoulder, she has first-hand experience in a lot of key areas. This allows her to uniquely relate to the physical, mental and emotional needs of her clients, her work being described as “professional” and “problem solving”. This ability to relate closely with clients was where the career began, and continues to drive and differentiate Lauren in the profession.

Deep tissue/sports massage is a specialised form of massage therapy that targets deep layers of muscles and connective tissues. It aims to alleviate tension, improve flexibility, and promote faster recovery for athletes. Using intense pressure and various techniques, such as deep stroking and stretching, it addresses specific issues associated with sports-related injuries. Deep tissue/sports massage can prevent injuries, aid in rehabilitation, and enhance overall performance. It may cause some discomfort but is effective in promoting healing and well-being for athletes and non athletes.

Sports-specific injuries are injuries that occur due to participation in specific sports or physical activities. They can include sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, concussions, tendinitis, stress fractures, and muscle strains. These injuries result from factors such as overuse, improper technique, collisions, or repetitive movements. Preventive measures like warm-up, proper conditioning, and using protective gear can help reduce the risk. Seeking medical attention and following appropriate recovery protocols are crucial for healing and avoiding long-term complications.

Acupuncture/Dry needling is a therapeutic technique performed by trained healthcare professionals to relieve muscle pain and improve musculoskeletal function. Thin needles are inserted into trigger points or myofascial points to stimulate a twitch response and release tension. The procedure is typically well-tolerated and aims to reduce pain, enhance range of motion, and restore muscle function. Dry needling should be performed by licensed professionals and is often combined with other treatments. It offers a targeted approach to alleviate muscle tension and promote healing.

Pre/post operative care: Sports Therapy is an integral part of pre/post-operative care, providing specialised interventions to individuals before and after surgery. Pre-operatively, therapy focuses on optimising the patient’s physical condition through exercises and education. Post-operatively, therapy aids in recovery by reducing pain, restoring mobility, and improving overall function. Therapists assist with early mobilisation, pain management, and personalised rehabilitation exercises. By incorporating therapy into pre/post-operative care, patients can experience faster recovery, improved outcomes, reduced pain, increased mobility, and enhanced function. The therapist works closely with the surgical team to ensure comprehensive care and tailored interventions.

Rehabilitation/exercise prescription are crucial aspects of the recovery process for individuals with injuries or chronic conditions. Rehabilitation involves a comprehensive approach to restore physical capabilities and functionality, often guided by healthcare professionals. It includes exercises, therapies, and education to address impairments, improve mobility, strength, and balance. Exercise prescription focuses on designing personalized exercise programs to achieve specific therapeutic goals, considering the individual’s condition and abilities. These approaches enhance physical function, manage pain, and improve overall well-being. It’s important to work with qualified professionals for proper assessment, program design, and monitoring throughout the rehabilitation and exercise prescription process.

Pre/postnatal therapy is a specialized form of therapy that supports individuals during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Pre-natal therapy focuses on managing pregnancy-related discomforts and preparing the body for childbirth, while postnatal therapy assists in recovery and adjustment after delivery. It addresses physical and emotional changes through exercises, techniques, and emotional support. Pre/postnatal therapy promotes pain relief, physical well-being, and emotional adjustment. Seeking guidance from qualified professionals is important for safe and effective care during this unique time.

Injury and conditioning are interconnected aspects of physical health and fitness. Injury refers to harm or damage to the body’s tissues, while conditioning focuses on improving fitness and preparing the body for specific activities. Conditioning programs can help prevent injuries and enhance performance, while injuries may impact conditioning and require modifications during recovery. A well-rounded approach involves injury prevention strategies and tailored conditioning programs. It is important to seek professional guidance for personalized injury prevention and conditioning plans.

Kinesiology tape is a flexible and stretchable adhesive tape used for support, pain relief, and improved performance in therapeutic and sports settings. It mimics the elasticity of human skin, providing support without restricting movement. The tape is applied directly to the skin in specific patterns to alleviate muscle and joint pain, reduce inflammation, and improve proprioception. Proper application should be done under professional guidance. Kinesiology tape is a popular choice among athletes and individuals recovering from injuries, but it should be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
