Johnny initially trained in Sports Massage Therapy 20 years ago, but a change of circumstances led to him becoming an English Teacher in an orphanage in Lima, Peru. A lengthy sojourn in the southern hemisphere was eventually cut short by escaping Covid and returning to Tadcaster.
Johnny joined the team in 2021 having completed a sports massage course, working as clinic administrator and then as Physio Assistant. The majority of Johnny’s work is delivering home based rehab programmes to patients with reduced mobility/falls risk/multiple medical complaints.
Johnny’s ‘main work’ is at the British Library and tends to do his sessions in the late afternoon/evening.
Away from work Johnny has a lengthy background in running (fellrunning, XC, track, road, ultras, mountain marathons and skyrunning). Although he has dabbled in some road running fellrunning is his main passion having done all the Lakes classics, the Bob Graham Round and the Lakeland 100.
