CLAIRE

Claire Lydon-Strutt qualified as a Sports and Holistic Massage Therapist including specialist pregnancy massage. Since qualifying Claire treated privately in and around London. In 2013, Claire moved back to her home town of Marlborough and joined the Amanda Marsh Physiotherapy practice at Marlborough Golf Club. 

Claire became interested in Sports Massage through her professional dance training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire. She combines her knowledge of dance, posture, alignment and the mechanics of movement with her treatments. She has treated a wide variety of sports persons, including dancers, runners, golfers, tri-athletes, footballers and cyclists. Claire qualified as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2014. Sports Massage can be a great tool when training for an event or competition to relieve sore muscles, maintain muscle balance and help reduce the risk of injury. 

Sports Massage is not just for those sporty types or injury related issues, massage can be beneficial for every day aches and pains, such as back tension, stiff neck and shoulders caused from driving or desk related jobs. Claire ensures that your treatment is specific to your individual needs and goals, from onset of injury through to resilience training with pilates. Amanda and Claire work closely together to ensure you have a smooth resolution of your problem from initial pain/injury to full rehabilitation. 

LUCY

Lucy is the person who keeps things running smoothly in order that Amanda and Claire can concentrate on the most important thing – you! Her role encompasses reception, marketing and accounting. She has a varied working background that has taken her from food product development in London to book keeping and office management.

HANNAH

Hannah has a tireless passion for helping people and guiding them through their journey of recovery. She has many years of experience of treating a wide array of injuries and focusses on treating the cause of the injury rather than just the symptoms. This approach facilitates a speedy recovery and return to pain-free activity - whether that be in high level sports or basic daily living - but also allows Hannah to address underlying physical limitations once and for all! Hannah believes that targeted manual therapy and active rehabilitation are critical for long term resolution.

Hannah has come from working for Pure Sports Medicine in London, where she was Clinical Manager of their busy City clinic. Passionate about sport, fitness and wellbeing, when not at work Hannah spends a lot of her time exercising, playing tennis and running (with the odd triathlon thrown in!). She uses this experience in her treatment of injuries, whether elite or amateur. She strives to ensure that all patients have a clear understanding of the importance of conditioning for injury prevention, which will only help you achieve your goals.

Extended clinical interest: Trauma and post-operative care and rehabilitation, especially of the ankle, knee and shoulder. She also has a further interest in Womens Health, mainly pregnancy related issues.

DALE

Dale uses Sports and Remedial techniques to release tight muscles and allow a better blood flow to injured tissues. When muscles and tendons become damaged, impaired, knotted, tense or immobile, clinical massage provides an effective healing treatment. Dale gained her diploma of Remedial Massage at the Australia College of Natural Therapies, Sydney in 2008. She continued her learning and soon gained a Level 3 ITEC certificate in Sports Massage. After qualifying, she practised on the Northern Beaches, Sydney where her clients ranged from Triathletes to people struggling with anxiety, migraines and chronic conditions such as back pain. Dale herself is a mum of 2 young children, a keen runner and Crossfitter.

After years of neck and shoulder pain I sought Amanda's help. She traced the problem to an old sailing injury and after a course of treatment I'm pain free for the first time in years and swinging better than ever, 5 shots off my handicap since she put me right. Pete Askins, London
