Poppy graduated from Coventry University with a First-Class Honours Degree in Sports Therapy (BSc) in 2020 and joined The First Team at Wasps Rugby Football Club before being made redundant.

She said: “After this unfortunate time, I started doing more private clinic work and a year later I took the leap to start my own business.

"PH Sports Therapy is located in the Wellbeing Centre inside the Annex Studios and we offer a range of services from sports massage/deep tissue massage, injury assessments, rehabilitation and dry needling.”

Dry Needling is an invasive procedure where a fine needle is inserted into the skin and muscle.

She said her services can benefit a range of individuals of all ages.

"Most importantly, you do not need to be involved in a sport or complete any exercise to see a sports therapist,” Poppy added.

"The main role of a sports therapist is to help the individual based on their problematic areas and create a plan that is individualised based on their needs, lifestyle and occupation.”
