Deborah Slater (owner and therapist at Truro, Kingston and Richmond)

Massage Therapist in Richmond and Truro

Debbie Slater

I have worked as a nurse for many years and unfortunately also have first hand experience of being a back pain sufferer.

Discovering the benefit of deep tissue massage therapy approximately 11 years ago. I soon realised that massage could help speed recovery and consequently I didn’t have to rely on analgesia alone.

In addition I was privileged to have the knowledge and expertise of Dave Marriage (formally of the Pain Clinic Truro) to act as my mentor.

After Graduating from The University of Hertfordshire with a BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy I moved to Cornwall from Buckinghamshire.

Hannah Ford - Sports Therapist Truro

Hannah Ford

I have worked with international sports teams including the All Blacks Rugby Union, Italian Rugby Union, New Orleans Saints and the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL establishing specific treatment plans, pre and post-match routines. I have also worked in clinical settings in Hertfordshire, treating members of the public, students and athletes alike.

Massage is not just about feeling relaxed, although it’s a big part! It’s about the overall experience and outcome that the client has.

By being involved in sport from an early age I understand the importance of maintaining the bodies full function. This is through recovery and maintenance.

A love for sport and an interest in the anatomy of the body led me to a path pursuing a career as a Sports Therapist. I find helping the body, whether it to be reliving pain, enhancing wellbeing or just maintaining joint mobility to be hugely rewarding for the client and myself.

Catherine Manby – Massage Therapist, Truro

During my childhood I travelled extensively in Europe and gained a love of the outdoors the natural beauty of the earth, healthy living and other cultures. Later on whilst at university I travelled to India and Australia. After working as a Landscape gardener and Design and Technology Teacher I re-trained as a Sports Massage Therapist in Cornwall in 2013.

 I love massage because it helps so many people. Massage is deeply healing and restorative for a wide range of conditions with mental, emotional and physical benefits. I feel that it helps people reconnect to themselves and to their lives in general with a renewed sense of clarity and purpose with the deep sense of relaxation that massage therapy provides.

I am interested in the body’s energy systems and how to harness the healing power of the body and mind into healing itself through guided imagery , visualization, relaxation and massage technique, stretching & strengthening. Utilising the breath and learning correct breathing technique is also imperative to maximize oxygenation and circulation of the blood to the related affected tissues of the body. Working with a wide range of people and with every day being different is also hugely rewarding.
