Why choose Fiona James?

I decided to train in Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy after using it myself for many years to keep a long-standing and severe back injury under control. As one of very few female motor racing drivers in Europe and an experienced equestrian, I know the pressures of competing at the top levels of sport, both mentally and physically!

Over the years I have also consulted Sports & Remedial Therapists for other injuries including a badly broken arm and severe knee injuries.

In every case, I found Sports & Remedial Therapy to have many benefits, both for the initial problem and for prevention. I have used Sports &Remedial Therapy in conjunction with regular or intermittent treatment from physiotherapists and osteopaths, so know first-hand the benefits of different therapy systems working together.

My equine background

I have been practicing equine massage for almost 20 years and have over 25 years’ experience of working with horses in many different spheres/disciplines and up to Olympic level. I have also had the privilege during these years of spending time with many of the world’s top horses, riders and trainers, resulting in a good understanding of training and the associated problems.
