Therapist the winner of a national award


A THERAPIST has been named FHT Sports Therapist of the Year.

Rebecca Ayres received her award at the Federation of Holistic Therapists’ conference in London.

Rebecca set up her own clinic in Leicester, Reactiv8 Therapy, where she treated profession­al athletes including triathlete­s, cyclists and footballer­s.

In recent years, Rebecca has focused her work on helping individual­s suffering with long-term pain.

Today, she said her therapy work is now more focused on helping clients who are experienci­ng pain or discomfort as a result of scar tissue.

Rebecca said: ‘It is an overwhelmi­ng honour to receive the 2019 FHT Sports Therapist of the Year award, as well as being a finalist in the Complement­ary Therapist of the Year category.

“To be recognised for my holistic approach to chronic pain and scar rehabilita­tion is a privilege.”

Christophe­r Byrne, president of FHT, said: “These awards recognise individual­s who are excelling in therapy practice and education.”
