Therapy & Life Centre
Meet the Team
The aim is to reduce strain and discomfort, relieve pain and facilitate movement whether you are retired, work in an office or do manual work, and regardless of whether you are active or not. Age and ability do not matter, the treatments will always encourage the body to heal and repair, leaving you feeling rejuvenated.
Vida, Tania, Nicky, Maria and Sharon have a total of 81 years experience between them and we are all BTEC level 4 or level 5 certified.
From treating athletes and dancers, office workers and builders, they all have a wide range of expertise. The team pride themselves on listening to your needs and tailor your treatment to you.
Vida obtained BTEC level 5 qualification from the London School of Sports Massage 14 years ago and has worked at a wide variety of venues and events. She still offers treatments at Therapies in Sanderstead on Saturdays and Mondays since opening her own practice, Therapy and Life Centre in 2014. She can also offer lymphatic drainage, pregnancy massage, and kinesiology taping.
Tania has a degree in Sports Science and is also BTEC level 5 qualified from the London School of Sports Massage. She can offer biomechanical assessment and foot analysis and is a keen runner. She specialises in injury whilst also offering remedial massage in her day to day work.
Sharon studied Sports Massage at the Twickenham University to ITEC Diploma Level 4. Sharon is excellent at assessing clients’ pain points and manipulating specific muscles and soft tissues to provide pain relief and promote well-being. She effectively guides clients in self-care techniques, including stretching and/or heat/Cold Therapy. Sharon also offers pregnancy massage.
Maria is our all rounder. Having worked in an office for 8 years she really understands the physical impacts of sitting at a desk all day. She is a keen cyclist, trains in crossfit, and dabbles in all sorts of other activities from longboarding to pole fitness so that she can really understand the mind-set and common complaints of customers across the board from sedentary to active.
Nicky trained at Twickenham University to ITEC Diploma Level 4, and through her own experience in treating gymnasts and dancers over many years, she prides herself on being able to offer the necessary relief from specific pain, and tired, aching muscles with a much more remedial and holistic approach. Nicky also offers pregnancy massage.
