Qualifications: BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma in sports massage and remedial soft tissue therapy, Polestar Pilates comprehensive rehabilitation, Pre and post pregnancy certified.
Since 2004, Cassandra has been working in Sports Massage, seeing first-hand the positive effects of soft tissue therapy in a variety of settings.
Cassandra’s interest in Pilates and movement began when she started at Saracens RFC in 2008, before moving to Wasps RFC in 2010 as Senior Soft Tissue Therapist. She saw first-hand how rehabilitation and equipment Pilates could change a professional athlete’s movement, giving them a strong base on which to build on. Pilates was a way of significantly reducing the athlete’s pain, enabling them to move faster through their rehab.
After three seasons at Wasps, Cassandra moved into the world of Olympic Sports and spent the next four years working in the English Institute of Sport and the Intensive Rehabilitation Unit. Recently, Cassandra started working for the Football Association as a consultant Soft Tissue Therapist to the U21’s Men’s England football team. Within this role, she uses the fundamentals of Pilates and movement therapy to assist in rehab as well as activation work.
Cassandra qualified through Polestar Pilates and loves working with clients for sports rehab, oncology clients and older adults. She uses her manual therapy skills to assist movement and help you achieve more from every session. For pre and post-natal clients she is also the perfect choice, particularly in your third trimester.
