About Me

I trained in Sports Massage Therapy at the Oxford University Sports Centre, where I studied the BTEC Professional Diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy Level 4* and hold full membership of the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage (ISRM).

Events to date includes providing massage at:
- Leander Club, Henley
- Dorney Lake event work for Upper Thames Rowing Club
- Reading Football 1st Team

As an ISRM member I am committed to continuing professional development and lifelong learning in order to stay current with changing techniques, procedures, processes, and established standards.

My main sporting interests are recreational and include running and rowing and I’m starting to get hooked on cycling .. I hear a triathlon calling me!

I work from home and have a dedicated treatment room. You can find me in Strachey Close, Tidmarsh near Reading (RG8 8EP).

Testimonials

"Having suffered a rotator cuff injury a few years ago I tried several different styles of massage and treatments that had little or no effect. I thought my injury was something I would have to live with. Vanessa was recommended to me by a work colleague, so I decided to give sports massage a try. Over a period of six months I have regained strength and improved range of movement and flexibility to my shoulder. I now visit Vanessa on a regular basis for a sports massage as a matter of 'maintenance'. I would definitely recommend Vanessa."
Mike, Police Officer

"Vanessa has given me several sports massages over a period of heavy training for both a marathon and my first triathlon. I have found the massage to be very beneficial in terms of both recovery and flexibility. Vanessa is very careful to discuss exactly what she is doing and why and has recommended various stretches and exercises for me to do at home in addition to her treatments. I was particularly impressed when Vanessa identified a lower back problem as being more than mereley exercise induced stiffness and referred me to my GP for further investigation. Vanessa is friendly, competent, careful and professional and I would happily recommend her to anybody requiring a sports massage."
Annie Cowen, PA

"As a triathlete I rely on sports massages to help prevent injuries and aid recovery. Vanessa Munday is by far and away the best therapist I have ever used. She is extremely knowledgeable on her subject and very thorough. I would highly recommend her."
