Sports Therapy is an area of healthcare which focuses on sport and remedial massage including muscle energy techniques and soft tissue release, diagnosis of injury, and manual therapy treatment. It utilises the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to ensure effective rehabilitation and the return to optimal and functional performance. Although regarded as a sports injury and soft tissue specialist, Emma’s hands-on approach and scope of practice lends itself well to a wide range of clients needs.

Throughout her career Emma has gained valuable experience in a number of therapy settings; some of which involved working on a year long selective placement with an elite young athlete scheme, and assisting alongside Crawley Town FC during their remarkable 2010 FA Cup run. Locally, she has worked with the Guernsey Rugby Football Club for 2 seasons providing first aid and injury support for all games. She has always been actively involved with sport on the island herself, representing Guernsey with the senior women’s basketball squad for 9 years, competing at 3 Island Games and never losing an interinsular to the other island!
