This course is taught by Chris Newton. For further information about Chris, please visit our team page

Chris Newton like many sports massage practitioners, began life in the world of sport. From age 11 he played national standard squash, taking him all over the country, which continued for many years. But like many before him, the decision not to turn professional came down to his mounting list of injures. Just NMT his right adductor magnus and watch him jump off the couch for proof of this!

These days Chris runs a successful clinic in Sussex offering an holistic approach to injury prevention, combining Sports Remedial Massage, Corrective Exercise and Healthy Lifestyle Coaching. If you call and get his answer phone he'll most probably be several thousand feet above the ground flying his paraglider, kayaking a river or climbing on the wall he made in his spare bedroom. Alas, not much squash these days though.



Join us on our Postural Assessment workshop as well as the Biomechanics and Biotensegrity these will advance your assessment and rehabilitation skills as a soft tissue therapist to provide a more effective holistic rehabilitation program.
