Hi, I'm Ryan Smith Based in Ripley Derbyshire. I'm a level 4 Sports Massage Therapists & about to embark on my level 5 with the Sports Massage Academy. I qualified as a level 3 SMT back in December 2016, this was after I had a long battle with both my mental and physical health. I decided I wanted to regain my focus and try and understand more about my body, this was the main reason I started retraining.
Now few years on, life has been a whirlwind I set up MYoKNEADS back in 2018 and to say my opportunities have been unreal, would be an understatement. I have had the privilege of working at the International Ice Hockey Centre of Excellence, Vierumäki in Finland, I work closely with a few players from the GB Ball Hockey Team. Most recently I worked in the French Alps working for a high-end chalet operator, providing a therapy service for their guests. Now I'm back home I have new challenge to re-establish my a clinic and drive forward with my continued development as a therapist.
