Attending sporting events—whether for charity or local/national/international fixtures—is a service we provide outside of the clinic. Not only are these events enjoyable, but attending them gives us hands-on experience, which we can bring back into our clinic environment.
We are pleased to support the annual Cancer Research UK Race for Life events in the Canterbury District. In past years, we have had a lot of fun, and have enjoyed the fantastic sights of hundreds of women and children dressed in all shades of pink as they set off on their challenge. So, if you are participating, don’t forget to look for us for some pre-preparation and much needed post-event massage.
Not forgetting the men: we also attend the Man On The Run race in Herne Bay. If you are in need of some therapy treatment, or have any questions you would like to ask, come and find us—if you can bring a few pennies to throw in our collection charity pot, even better!
In 2010, we were also appointed to help at the Sport Relief Mile—an event that kicked off from the University of Kent in Canterbury.

Working with Commonwealth and Olympic athletes to gold level
In addition to working at events, we make the effort to try out and/or observe a variety of sports so that we understand the types of repetitive movements you put your body through. Golf, football, rugby, gymnastics, swimming, various athletic activities, badminton, table tennis, tennis and cycling are some that we have tried out (in some cases not very successfully!).
If you participate in a particular sport and would welcome one of our team coming along to observe a training session or to take part, let us know.
Please speak to reception for any queries related to our sports-specific treatments.
