Rob, our sports massage therapist, gets another great review from top athlete, Tom Cardy!

BMX stunt jump with Tom Cardy

“Being an extreme sports athlete, taking part in a very high impact sport on a daily basis, it is very important to keep my body in great shape. After visiting Rob for a sports massage, I felt amazing. I have great trust in Rob, as I have an injured left shoulder, which has affected my confidence in the past. However, Rob listened to my issues, gave me some good advice and worked positively to ensure is doesn’t get in the way of my career. Thanks very much and I look forward to more sports massage treatments!”

Alex Hardwick with Rob at the Stretch clinic

Here’s Alex with Rob at our clinic.

Alex Hardwick came to visit Rob at our sports massage clinic this week and sent us an absolutely glowing review. Alex is an equestrian star! She is currently ranked 9th on FEI world rankings for Under 25 GB in 2016 and is the highest placed British rider. She achieved a 4th place at Aachen CHIO (Germany) this year and was also the highest place British rider at Under 25 European championships. In 2012 Alex was the young professional of the year. She has a total of 12 regional titles and 4 national titles.





“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the sports massage session that I had with Rob on Wednesday. I had a really great session and it has helped me so much! Stretch Physio is a fantastic practice! I suffer from tension in my shoulders due to riding up to 10 horses each day. Rob has really helped to loosen this up and I felt the difference right away. That along side the exercises he has given me, I feel ready for my competition this weekend! They have a great professional attitude and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.Big thank you to Stretch Physio!”
