"I have been competing for over 30 years running marathons, ultra distance, multi sport events and triathlons.

Throughout that time I have finished over 1000 races worldwide and have regular sports massage as preventative and to sort out any aches pains and niggles that occur during training and racing.

Sports massage to avoid injuries

Carmel has a good range of pressures for achy muscles, enough to release tension and not enough to make the sports massage painful. She has an ability to notice anything different from previous treatments and understand how to treat it before anything serious happens, which I am sure has prevented and injury happening.

I have found Carmel at the Sports therapy Room very knowledgeable and quick to understand what is needed to avoid trial and error and unnecessary extra visits.

Recovering from injury

Carmel has sorted out several injuries with the minimum number of treatments and given clear constructive advice. I estimate I have received over 250 sessions world wide throughout my career and consider Carmel to have healing hands , some sports therapists only seem to have an easy and hard pressure."

"Following a consultation with my Doctor, I was told that my running days were over after developing a hip injury that was caused by road running. The Doctor advised the only course of action to address the pain and to remediate the injury would be to completely stop all running. As an active person and someone who had developed a passion for running between 10 and 15 KM runs, this was not my favored approach.

In a last ditch attempt to salvage my running career, I turned to Carmel Gosbee - owner of the Sports Therapy Room.

Before meeting Carmel, I was a complete skeptic and non believer in what I previously would have called 'alternative' treatment.  After two 1 hour sessions, to my dismay and astonishment, my pain was completely removed and I was able to run again, pain free, which was a massive relief!

Later that summer, I developed and improved, to the point that I was comfortably able to run beyond the half marathon mark which was the longest distance I had ever run to date.

This was more than two and a half years ago and I have since covered many, many pain free miles on the road, having completed the Brighton 2011 and London 2011 Marathons, both within 7 days of each other. Before undertaking this challenge, I saw Carmel for three treatment sessions with the aim of strengthening my weakness areas.

I am indebted to Carmel and have no hesitation whatsoever  in recommending her. She is a warm, caring and passionate person, who has totally changed my point of view and shown me the true value of a skilled Sports Therapist. I have complete faith and confidence in Carmel, to whom I will return to, as and when I have any sports related wear and tear in the future." - Andrew Leonard'
