Loved providing massage at the Awareness for Autism charity football match at Basford FC yesterday. Treated a couple of (thankfully) minor injuries. Met some great people. There was a fantastic atmosphere with parents, celebrities and players all coming together to raise money for such a good cause. Thank you to Lauri & John for involving me. Here is a photograph of the lovely Gemma Atkinson wearing her Awareness for Autism/the tonic room sweater -)

Lisa Riley Dip. S.M. (MSM)
Sport & Remedial Massage Therapist

Hello! I thought I would introduce myself (for those of you who don't already know me).

I trained in Remedial Massage, Sports Massage and Injury Rehabilitation at the Midlands School of Massage & Manipulative therapy, passing with Distinction.

I have treated many different sports people including runners, weight lifters, kickboxers and footballers. I have also helped others to overcome ruptured tendons, shoulder pain and restriction, chronic back pain and work related sprains and strains. In addition to working in the clinic, I am currently trying to improve my knowledge and experience pitch side.

I live in Ilkeston with my partner and our three children, all of whom are involved in sport and regularly demand treatment!

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, please don't hesitate to message me on here or call 07710 608 911.
