Stefan Saunders Sports Massage Therapist

I trained at the London School of Sports Massage in 1995 where I gained a Diploma. I am also a qualified Staff Nurse, trained as a Children’s Nurse and work part time in Neonatal Intensive Care.

2012 saw me volunteering at the Olympic sailing events and the Paralympic rowing events. Being part of the Olympic vibe is an experience I will never forget. On a professional level it was invaluable, the multi-disciplinary nature of the medical team gave me access to new techniques to use with my own clients at Lowford Clinic.
