ABOUT US

Why is Bodyfixit the right choice to help you?

My name is Gemma and welcome to Bodyfixit where we are passionate about helping people who are frustrated with aches and pains stopping them moving easily and enjoying being active and life.

We show people how they can manage their body, resolve their aches and pains, achieving their goals and get back to smiling.

We love it when a client comes in and has been able to sit comfortably in a chair for the first time in ages, sleep comfortably or do their challenge they have set themselves.

We help people see that there is an alternative to feeling stressed, cautious when you move and worried you are going to make it worse, also that taking pain medication, putting up with something or losing weight is not the only answer.

We are passionate about empowering people to get to know their own body, what works for them and how with awareness and simple exercises you can get back to moving easily and enjoying life.

We believe that goal focused deep tissue massage doesn’t need to be painful and the amount of pressure is made specific to your needs.

At bodyfixit we have tried to create a welcoming environment where no question is silly, you feel listened to and supported on your journey, encouraged to keeping moving forward even when it is difficult and ready to jump on our cosy couch for some quality ME time. 

 

Why are we so passionate?

Before helping with aches and pains I used to work as a ski instructor, teaching adults and kids how to ski and explore the mountains having fun. Over the years I had several injuries (nothing major luckily).

From what I now know is due a combination of poor exercise technique and holding certain skiing positions I injured myself but at the time no one could tell me why it was happening and how to best get rid of it.

I struggled to walk, let alone move and work without aches and constant soreness which I found it so frustrating. I also felt stuck as no one could help me or tell me what I should be doing myself. So I learned to listen to my body, stop exercising, take it easy and also found a brilliant massage therapist who got and understood me.

Now I am lucky I don’t have aches and pains anymore because I have learnt to manage my body and I love massage as it reduces my aches and stiffness and makes me feel relaxed and ready to take on my day.

So I started back on my Sports Therapy which I had studied and qualified at the University of Central Lancashire (https://www.uclan.ac.uk) in between teaching skiing. In 2014 I qualified from the North London School of Sports Massage (http://www.nlssm.com) and opened Bodyfixit to assist people on their journey to learning how they can manage their body, resolve their aches and get back to smiling and enjoying life.
