Jo Thorp

Massage Therapist

Specialism: Massage

Jo first experienced the benefits of massage when she was recovering from ME and Fibromyalgia.  After months of taking medications, a friend offered her massage treatments which finally set her on the road to recovery.  Jo then started her own journey of re-training as a complementary therapist, initially in Swedish massage and then as a sports massage therapist. This has been the best thing she has ever done.
 
Jo is passionate about the benefits that sports massage can bring, and how it helps to alleviate the stress and tension that builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity. You don't have to participate in sport to benefit from this type of massage ­- it helps to enhance blood circulation and promote good muscle tone and function and is therefore beneficial for general maintenance for everyday well-being. Above all, sports massage can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of achievement and performance.
 
Jo has always taken part in sport – everything from swimming and running to mixed martial arts – and she’s currently working as the sports massage therapist for the Wembley Stallions American Football Team and Uxbridge Rugby Club.  
 
Jo loves to help people live their lives to the fullest and since joining Bridge to Health she is enjoying working in a team alongside the osteopaths and other therapists to provide lasting health benefits to patients.
