Tina Towler

Sports Massage Therapist

Tina has been a sports massage therapist and biomechanics coach for 12 years. She is a Personal Trainer (PT) who specialised in phase 4 cardiac rehabilitation for 10 years in association with the BACR. Tina’s motivation to do sports massage in 2007 was to help sporty, active children, (young cricketers at the time,) as Tina felt they needed care, guidance, tips and tools to be able to help look after their young, growing bodies to give them the best chance of reaching their full potential.

Tina loves treating to help people feel better, less stressed and achieve positive outcomes. The human body is an incredible but complicated machine. It fascinates her and she is therefore constantly learning, she loves it!
Note from Tina: “I may be rather vertically challenged but do not let my size fool you! They don’t call me the ‘pocket rocket’ for nothing…”

About Sports Massage

We often say that as a therapy, sports massage as a title is highly deceiving as fundamentally you don’t need to be playing sport or to have a sports injury to have a sports massage. When we compare sports massage to general massage there are a few key differences, the main one is pressure. Generally speaking a sports massage is focussed on working on the muscles to elicit change which often involves increased pressure. If we compare this to general massage the pressure will be slightly less as the focus is on relaxing the muscles and you! Sports massage is also great for those muscular niggles that could come from working from home at the dining room table or from hitting the gym. All in all, it is a treatment for all that is specific to your needs.

The Covid Pandemic turned life upside down, being unable to treat patients I suddenly had more time on my hands than I had in years. In addition to the obligatory DIY and baking copious cakes I thought I should try to keep fit, so I decided to try my colleague Georgie’s online Pilates classes, well I loved them and Georgie’s clear, encouraging teaching style.  The focus, the concentration, the ability to progress the exercises and work at a level which suited me, I felt I was getting a safe full body workout which was still really challenging.
So how has my progress been going, the honest answer - non existent! I felt it was really important to write this article as fundamentally there is one key message...
Dark days and Christmas have certainly presented a challenge for the early starts, but given that we have been able to remain open throughout Lockdown, I have been able to have treatment and start my rehabilitation for a number of the key areas identified by the screens.

Thank you for fixing my back after 6 months of working from home on a wooden kitchen chair! I’ve gone from having never seen a Chiropractor before to now making it a regular appointment.

Adam Jones

It is due to a number of practitioners, now at the Health Hub, that my recovery from a serious injury was the successful. I cannot praise Jodie and Tina enough for their knowledge, advice and support in 2018, which expedited my recovery giving me the opportunityto continue pursuing my sporting hobbies. I am so thankful they continue to deliver their skills from a new base, which houses the best professionals in the area. I have often joked with Sam that I need a sports top saying ‘This body has been rebuilt and regularly serviced by The Health Hub’.

Highly recommend – Sam and Tina at the Health Hub have helped me enormously recently with a back problem and I have been so pleased with the results. Always a friendly smile and professional service at their practice

I had a great sports/therapeutic massage with Tina Towler today. This was exceptional and I used Sam for back issues in the past. The Health Hub is exceptional in decor and organisation. It was a really good vibe it there today with loads on street parking available just outside. Great experience, thank you for today. Lovely place to go to.

I see Sam (chiropractor) regularly and he offers a bespoke, caring open minded service.
