My interest in sports massage and rehabilitation started when I experienced my first long standing injury and required soft tissue therapy to relieve this pain. Following this I was curious to understand further into diagnosing injuries and different treatments.
In 2013 I started my degree in Sports Rehabilitation at St Marys University. In June 2014 I gained my Level 4 Sports Massage qualification with the addition pregnancy massage. In June 2014 Gemma Bigg Sports Massage was first open for business. I successfully graduated from university in July 2016 with a Sports Rehabilitation Bsc Hons with accreditation from BASRaT.
I have had the opportunity to work with Argentina Rugby team, GB Triathletes, GB 800m and endurance runners. I have experienced working alongside Grasshoppers RFC at the beginning and the end of there 2015/16 season. Other sports include cyclists, gymnasts, footballers, swimmers and bodybuilders.
I have worked at various sporting events including St Michaels Hospice Big Wheel, Thames Path Challenge, London Moonwalk and London Men’s Survival of the Fittest.
