SPORT & REMEDIAL MASSAGE
Jessica Armah - Sport & Remedial Massage Specialist
Jessica has worked in the equine industry for over 14 years with a range of disciplines from riding club horses to polo ponies. This gave her the knowledge of the stress caused on the body by horse riding and the importance of core and overall body strength to maintain position. She competes as a 200m sprinter for Windsor, Slough Eton and Hounslow Athletic Club and works there as a therapist, looking after the women's team at competitions. Jess previously completed several half marathons before switching to sprinting and competed in the 200m at the British Championships in 2018, finishing the season ranked number 1 in the UK for her age in the 100m and 200m.
Jess has a wealth of experience regarding all aspects of fitness, training and massage. She is a qualified personal trainer, British Athletics Coach, British Weightlifting Coach and Strength & Conditioning Coach in addition to her soft tissue therapy, taping and strapping and sports first aid qualifications. She is also qualified to offer remedial stone therapy and seated acupressure massage. Jess also offers medical acupuncture as part of all her treatments.
