Based in Ryton, Kathryn brings over ten year’s experience of sports massage and athlete injury prevention education.

Working across sports such as rugby, triathlon and rowing from grass root to international performance levels. Kathryn is running a session centred around targeting injury prone areas in junior rowers with stretching and rolling exercises that can be integrated into a normal training week to reduce risk. If you own a roller at home, please bring it with you but it is not mandatory for the session.
