Caroline Teffler Dip (NLSSM) SRMT, MSMA

Soft Tissue Therapist

Caroline retrained as a massage therapist in 2012 after a successful corporate career. Her interest and subsequent career choice stemmed from personal experience of the effectiveness of sports massage therapy to manage sports injuries and enable optimum training.

She began her re-training at the highly regarded North London School of Sports Massage (NLSSM), where she developed her extensive tool box of both foundation and advanced massage techniques. She continues to build on this knowledge with regular Continued Professional Development (CPD), exploring and gathering new techniques and skills to enable her to best serve her clients. This, combined with her natural talent for problem solving, has enabled her to excel at assessment and evaluation of her clients, as well as their treatment.

Caroline finds that the satisfaction that comes with delivering a treatment plan that allows a client to realise their goals is highly motivating. She says ‘’My work whether it is with a sports team, in a clinic setting or at major events provides a unique buzz and set of challenges; a mix that means it is always interesting. But by far the best and most enjoyable, aspect of my work is seeing the smile on the client’s face as they get off the couch, move around and realise they are no longer in pain’’.

A lifelong cyclist, on both road, and off road, a keen swimmer and qualified swimming teacher; Caroline brings her passion and knowledge of these sports into her work, and working relationships.
