Interview with Dan Keogh, Soft Tissue Therapist
We recently caught up with Dan Keogh to ask him some questions about his soft tissue therapy business to give more of an insight into what he does and how he can help you.
Hi Dan, can you give us an insight into what soft tissue therapy is?
Quite simply the soft tissues comprise; muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, fibrous tissues, fat, blood vessels, and synovial membranes and Soft Tissue Therapy (STT) is the manipulation of said tissues in order to optimise their function. The techniques that I use include; massage, therapeutic stretching, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM).
How long have you been a soft tissue therapist?
I have been a therapist since 2011 where I achieved my postgraduate diploma with the North London School of Sports Massage (NLSSM).
How can soft tissue therapy help me?
STT encourages optimal range of motion around joints therefore improving comfort levels and general function. This form of therapy is for people of all ages and activity levels and can aid sleep and relaxation whilst reducing stress and discomfort. Furthermore, STT has the capacity to enhance the healing process, improve posture and create global balance throughout the body.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Following 6 years, full time within both Premiership Football and Rugby Union I felt that it was time to use the experience I had gained in a more autonomous way. I had always wanted to start my own business and with the endless travelling and extreme commitments required in professional sport I also wanted to spend more quality time with my wife and son. I currently love my work and the more varied style of treatment I get to experience. My clients range from the age of 10 to 84 from all walks of life and I feel this has made me an even more rounded therapist.
How would the best way be to make an appointment with you?
