About  Me
  
Sarah Gilbertson – Sports Massage Therapist & Pilates Instructor
LLB, HDipSal, MFHT, YMCA Pilates, REPs

Sarah started out with the intention of practicing Law, however, her love of sport and the outdoors led her to the Alps for ten years, and later on to qualifying as a ski instructor.  More recently she has become a keen trail runner, starting with the Couch to 5k programme, of which she is a strong advocate.

Sarah has experienced first hand the therapeutic and physical benefits of Sports Massage and Pilates, using them both over the years and in particular after undergoing back surgery. This led to her qualifying as a Sports Massage Therapist as well as a Modern Pilates Instructor and she now works full time in the beautiful Peak District.

Since qualifying Sarah has worked alongside some amazing Physiotherapists in private practice, providing soft tissue massage as part of the patient’s overall treatment plan.  Sarah treats a broad range of people from octogenarians who run half marathons to triathletes and those suffering from functional or occupational aches and pains, to keep everyone injury and pain free during their day to day activities.

During the summer months she can be found supporting a variety of sporting events, providing massage at IronMan competitions, Superhero Tri and Dark and White Events.

Sarah is committed to her continued professional learning and has recently completed courses in Sports and Deep Massage for the Neck, Spinal Diagnostics, Trigger Point Therapy and Kinesiology Taping.

She is a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and the Register of Exercise Professionals and holds an Outdoor Emergency First Aid Certificate and Enhanced DBS Disclosure.
