Olivia is Daniell a qualified Soft Tissue Therapist specialised in treating those who suffer with chronic pain, muscular tension and minor injuries caused by sport, long hours at a desk or other lifestyle factors. Olivia uses a variety of techniques including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, stretching, myofascial release and rehabilitation exercises to treat her clients.
With a background in gymnastics and dance, Olivia specialises in working with athletes, dancers and gymnasts. However, you by no means need to be “sporty” to benefit from treatment as a lot of clients are referred due to work posture issues as well as stress.
Appointments involve assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. Olivia’s aim is not just to give you short term pain relief, but also to find out what is causing the pain and treat the underlying issues to re-balance the body and prevent long term problems.
As a b-girl (breakdancer) and former competitive gymnast, Olivia has always been interested in the body, movement and how to stay healthy. She understands the demands of training and the importance of keeping the body injury free. Using knowledge from her own training and previous injuries, Olivia is uniquely able to relate and empathise with her clients, bringing a well rounded and informed approach to treatment.
Olivia is especially passionate about increasing awareness of the importance of looking after our bodies and avoiding injuries in the world of competitive dance. This has lead her to provide treatments for dancers at battles and events in the UK, as well as international events including Catch the Flava and Outbreak Europe in Slovakia, where she worked with Project Breakalign.
You may have seen Olivia at local sports events including the Simplyhealth Great Bristol Half Marathon/10k, Chilly Duathlon and Bristol Triathlon.
Olivia has also worked closely with One-Dance UK to create and host the UK’s first Hip Hop Health Conference “Mind the Gap” which took place in May 2017.
