I went to see Rachel for a problem with my hip and back. I was nervous at first that the treatment would hurt, but Rachel listened and started out gently and talked me through what she was doing as she went along. Rachel put me at ease and really helped to ease the pain. She also gave me some great exercises for in between sessions and contacted me to check how I was getting on. A fabulous all round treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel.

Hi. I’m Rachel and I joined the Vanbrugh Team in 2020. I’m a qualified Sport Rehabilitation Therapist and I’m currently studying a Masters in Physiotherapy at Kings College London (MSc).

As part of my Sports Rehab degree I have been qualified in sports massage since 2016 and have been practicing ever since.

I have always appreciated the importance of sports massages in helping improve performance. I swam competitively for Greenwich and Kent from a young age and sports massages were vital in aiding my recovery by increasing circulation and helping prevent injuries by reducing muscle tension.

Since graduating from St Mary’s University, I’ve had the privilege of working with several sports teams, as well as in private practices. I’ve found that sports massages can benefit everyone – whatever their level of fitness. They’re a great way to relieve stress and get rid of niggling aches and pains. I love to see the difference it can make to people in helping them return to the activities they love.

Away from work and studies I love going to the gym and swimming to keep fit. I have also recently started long distance running.

An interesting fact about you no one would know (until now):
I swam with Rebecca Adlington at a swimming camp (long before she won 2 golds at Beijing in 2008)
