About Hannah Ford
After Graduating from The University of Hertfordshire with a BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy Hannah moved to Cornwall from Buckinghamshire.
During her 4 years at University, she spent a year of this at Harlequins FC working in the medical department. During that year, she enhanced skills as a therapist in soft tissue, taping techniques, examination and assessment, and rehabilitation of all injuries.
Hannah has 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.
Not only has Hannah worked in professional and amateur sport. She has also worked in clinical settings in Hertfordshire, treating members of the public, students and athletes alike.
Although it’s a big part, for Hannah, massage is not just about relaxation! It’s about the overall experience and outcome that the client has. Whether it is from a good old chinwag or relieving you from any tension that you may be suffering from.
Being involved in a sporting environment from an early age has given Hannah the understanding of the importance of maintaining the bodies’ full function, through recovery and maintenance.
Love for sport and an interest in the anatomy of the body led Hannah to a path pursuing a career as a Sports Therapist. In fact, Hanna finds helping the body, whether it to be relieving pain, enhancing wellbeing or just maintaining joint mobility to be hugely rewarding for the client and herself.
