Rachel Fawcett


After graduating from Loughborough University with a BSc in Sports Science and PE, I joined the Army and spent 16 years serving all over the world.  After leaving, I qualified as a Personal Trainer with Referred Populations specialising in post natal fitness, running numerous boot camps and post natal fitness classes.


I have always run and love being out on the trails, in 2013 I changed tack and started competing in Ultra Marathons.  It was this exposure to extreme endurance competition which prompted me to look harder at how to prevent and treat injury and led me to compete a Level 5 Diploma in Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Therapy with the Oxford School of Sports Massage.


I am now in the position where I can combine my love of sport and running with massaging and rehabilitating others. I help treat sports, occupational and postural pain and discomfort through massage and soft tissue techniques.  I aid the rehabilitation process and help get people back to their sport, make their working lives more comfortable or simply keep them out on the trails.
