We all have a story to tell....

This week Reanne, our new Massage Therapist gives us some background on her previous career and training.

Hello!  I am Reanne Benson and I am an Advanced Clinical Massage Therapist. 
I specialise in chronic pain relief, especially post injury or surgery recovery.  
I have a strong interest in rehabilitation and biomechanics after recovering from a knee injury and subsequent surgery myself.  

During my treatments, I use a combination of traditional techniques alongside Amma (a Japanese therapy using deep static pressure), Soft Tissue Release (specific, focussed stretches for different areas of individual muscles), Acupressure, Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release, which is especially effective in the treatment of scar tissue and generalised tension.  

I also incorporate Aromatherapy and Reflexology where appropriate for relaxation and to enhance treatments.  Qualified to BTEC L5 in Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy (ACMT) through Jing Advanced Massage Training in Brighton, I am also working towards a degree level qualification in Advanced Clinical Massage and Sports Massage through the same provider.  

Alongside ACMT, I am qualified in Equine Sports Massage and enjoy working with both horse and rider to improve performance.  I am a member of both the SMA and ESMA.

An outdoor person, I am a keen horse rider and competitor in Endurance Riding with my horse Harley.   My dog, Elsa, helps with my fitness by getting me out for regular runs and I attend circuit sessions at my gym several times a week.  Having recently left the RAF, I volunteer with the RAF Air Cadets, enjoy photography and to relax I love to curl up with a good book whenever I get chance.
