22 May Meet Laura one of the Remedial Massage Therapists at Openhealth
Here at the Openhealth Clinic, we are a close-knit team and work together to ensure that we offer the best physiotherapy, osteopathy, sports massage and acupuncture treatments in and around Ascot – Today we have an interview with Laura who is one of the Osteopaths at Openhealth.
If you have any questions for Laura or want to know more about any of the treatments that we offer then please get in touch with a member of the team today!
My name is Laura and I qualified as a Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist at L.S.S.M and as a Pilates Teacher at Body Control Pilates.
What made you choose physiotherapy (osteopathy, sports massage, acupuncture) as a career?
As a dancer, I was always interested in body mechanics and understanding how and why our bodies allowed or restricted movements. I found both Sports Massage and Pilates to be very effective in maintaining my performance levels. My desire to understand more about both disciplines drew me to study at the above schools and then pursue as a career.
How long have you been working as a Sports Massage Therapist and Pilates Teacher?
I qualified as a Sports Massage Therapist in 2014 and as a Pilates Teacher in 2016.
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I enjoy being able to help people and having the ability to provide relief for patients who are in discomfort. I find it very rewarding to assist in restoring balance and good musculoskeletal function.
What is the main piece of advice you give to new patients?
You have to be willing to do the work outside the treatment room
Why is physiotherapy (osteopathy, sports massage, acupuncture) important to you?
It’s important to me because it makes such a difference. It creates balance and optimises the function of the musculoskeletal system.
Why do you enjoy working for the Openhealth Clinic?
We work very much as a team and ensure our patients are always with the practitioner that is most suitable to their needs. Our mix of specialities makes us a very well rounded team.
Outside of work what do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy being active. I love the outdoors and grab any opportunity to explore new places.
We hope you have learnt something new about the Openhealth Clinic team today and we look forward to helping you with any physiotherapy, osteopathy, sports massage and acupuncture-related treatments.
Please get in touch if you would like to book your first session.
