Sharon Humphrey BSc, Dip RM, Adv Dip MT (MSM)
I am qualified in Advanced Manipulative Therapy and Remedial Massage through the Midlands School of Massage. I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the National Association of Massage and Manipulative Therapists (NAMMT) for which I do Continuing Professional Development (CPD). I am fully insured through Royal and Sun Alliance plc and have been cleared by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). I have a BSc in Biomedical Science and am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council and may be viewed on the register.
Prior to working as a manipulative and massage therapist I worked for the NHS as a health care professional behind the scenes in the laboratories as a Biomedical Scientist. I enjoyed my job for many years but felt the time had come for me to have a change of direction. Working in the caring profession for 35 years I wanted to still help people but have more direct patient contact. Since qualifying as a level 4 Remedial Massage and level 5 Manipulative Therapist I have really enjoyed seeing patients, and found helping people very rewarding. It really makes my day when a patient informs me how much better they feel following a treatment.
Having studied human anatomy and the way our muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves all work in harmony to allow our bodies to move, it is easy to see that if any part sustains an injury then the whole body can be affected.
I believe that to keep us mobile, supple, flexible and strong for a long and healthy life, we owe it to ourselves to look after our bodies, which includes seeking help from a health care professional such as myself, to restore harmony when things go wrong.
