My name is Tom Powell and I own and run Sports Massage Therapy by Tom.
Having studied BSc (Hons) in Sports Science & Maths at Loughborough University, I had a successful 11 year career working in business and customer analytics. However, there was always a desire to return to my passion for sport and understanding the capabilities and limits of the human body.
Since retraining as a Level 4 Sports Massage Therapist, I have been working full time, with over 3,750 hours experience to date. Treating patients with Profortis (2016-20) and now with Sports Massage Therapy by Tom, after launching the business in June 2020 from my clinic in Great Kingshill. I am a full member of the Sports Massage Association (SMA).
Personal experience of years sitting at a computer desk, playing hockey and endurance running week-in week-out, means I understand the need to manage and recover from numerous work and sport related injuries.
The Sports Massage Therapy approach has played a vital role in helping to keep me injury-free and made me more in tune with my body. It can do this for you too!
Trusting and having confidence in your body is crucial for pain-free movement and good mental health. This enhances the experiences you have during your lifetime and into older age.
My aim is to use my analytical and technical skills to help my patients achieve their individual goals, be that recovery from injury, managing chronic pain, improving mobility, maintaining training workloads or achieving high level performance.
