More on Lauren

I currently work for the Cornwall FA Girls Advanced Coaching Centre (ACC) and AFC St. Austell as a sports therapist providing a professional, competitive and high-quality service to adolescents and adults. My role involves prehabilitation, injury diagnosis upon full assessment, injury treatment, rehabilitation, injury prevention, strength and conditioning; pitchside first aid, sports massage, kinesiology and rigid taping.

During my Sport and Exercise Psychology degree, I worked with professional teams in the British Basketball League (BBL), including the Plymouth Raiders. 

Although this role was based around Sport Psychology, I took particular interest in those players who were injured, or in the rehabilitation process, or were returning to play from injury.

Massage is a massive part of the body’s function in terms of recovery and maintenance. I am very passionate about my role as a sports therapist, because I enjoy what I do by helping patients with their needs, reducing their pain or enhancing their relaxation. I love using my knowledge to help people achieve their goals.

Catherine Manby – Massage Therapist, Truro

During my childhood, I travelled extensively in Europe and gained a love of the outdoors, the Earth’s natural beauty, healthy living, and other cultures. Whilst at university, I travelled to India and Australia. After working as a landscape gardener and a 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.

More on Catherine

I feel that it helps people reconnect to themselves and 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, visualisation, relaxation and massage technique, stretching andstrengthening. 

Utilising the breath and learning correct breathing technique is also imperative to maximise 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.



Debbie Slater (owner and therapist, Truro)

massage therapist Debbie

I have worked as a nurse for many years and unfortunately also have first-hand experience of being a back pain sufferer. I don’t believe that people should be slowed down by physical injury, pain or stress and that we should be able to keep active for the love of it and live life to the full.

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.

Also, I was privileged to have the knowledge and expertise of Dave Marriage (formerly of the Pain Clinic Truro) to act as my mentor.
