Sports Massage Therapist/Pilates Instructor
VTCT Level 3
Kerry began her massage career in 2014 when she qualified in Swedish Massage. Fascinated by the effect of massage on the human body, Kerry was keen to advance her massage skills further and has since qualified to Level 3 VTCT in Sports Massage Therapy and Level 5 BTEC in Sports & Remedial Massage, or Soft Tissue Therapy as it is widely being called. She has also trained with Rocktape in the use of Kinesiology Tape and Instrument Assisted Massage.
Kerry is also a qualified Pilates Instructor, having trained with the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute. She found that a lot of the rehabilitation exercises she was prescribing to her sports massage patients were Pilates based so it seemed like a natural addition to her skillset to have a full qualification. She offers Pilates sessions at both Hadleigh and Gamma clinics.
Kerry is also the massage therapist to the Ipswich Witches Speedway Team, based at Foxhall Stadium in Ipswich, where the riders use massage as a pre-event tool and post injury, for recovery.
She runs clinics every Wednesday evening and Friday during the day at our Hadleigh practice.
Having worked in London for most of her working life, Denise has gained experience and knowledge in the various roles she has held during this time.
She enjoys a varied working environment and interacting with people.
Denise moved to Hadleigh 3 years ago and absolutely loves living here.
She loves walking and discovering and exploring beautiful Suffolk with her two Jackapoos Dolly and Monty. She also enjoys cycling, travelling, going to concerts and photography.
Since studying front office management at college, Denise has worked predominantly in hospitality before taking a break to bring up her two sons.
She has a dog, two cats and nine sheep. When she is not with her animals she enjoys cooking, playing badminton and gardening - although, if it's sunny, everything stops to sunbathe with a book.
