Gina works alongside your GP, osteopath or chiropractor if necessary to make sure a thorough picture of your health is available and that conditions are managed according to high standards.

‘Get in touch for a chat about how my work can help you with pain management, riding improvement, flexibility or recovery after a fall or problem,’ says Gina. ‘I’m always happy to give my time to explain the benefits of good quality sports massage. I know that riders always put their horses first, so someone needs to be there for them too!’
