Alice Bennett in house sport massage therapist 

Hi, my name is Alice Bennett and I’m 19 years old.  I am completely passionate about fitness, health and what are bodies can do.  
My goal is to help people live better lives by utilising the healing benefits of Sports Massage.

As well as working part time at Pirate Fitness Gym in Witney and having my Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification I decided to qualify as a Level 4 Soft Tissue Therapist at The Oxford School of Massage and have gone on to achieve my Level 5 Sport Massage.  This qualification is the equivalent to a university degree and means I now have the ability to offer my clients a completely holistic 360-degree service, which allows them to truly lead pain-free, healthy and active lives.
I work with clients with a range of issues from sports injuries to arthritis to tension headaches.  Whether you have an injury that needs repairing, a muscular imbalance that is causing pain elsewhere or you simply need a deep tissue massage I can help.
I’ve spent time in various massage environments and spent a season working with athletes at the City Of Oxford Rowing 

I utilise a wide range of techniques including soft tissue therapy, trigger pointing, manual therapy techniques for the spine and peripheral joints and sport specific and occupational rehabilitation.
I advocate that everyone should be entitled to pain-free movement regardless of age and ability and take great pleasure in facilitating clients to achieve their own personal potential whilst preventing future injuries.
My treatments vary depending on your needs and I can concentrate on a specific area or provide an all round maintenance treatment for optimum physical fitness.
