Hi, I'm Craig May,
I am a Sports Massage Therapist in Henley Ipswich, currently based a clinic / gym setting at Ipswich Sports Therapy.
In 1998 I qualified at a personal trainer in New Zealand and worked within the fitness industry till 2005. During this period I moved to the UK where I slowly moved away from the fitness industry although I have always held a passion for health, fitness and personal well-being.
As a result of this passion I have made the decision to come back to the fitness and health industry becoming a Sports Massage Therapist.
Having been brought up in New Zealand around a strong sporting family I have dabbled in most dry and wet sports and I have great understanding on how the body responds to exercise and fitness. As a teenager I played representative football for Hutt Valley before turning to rugby where I was selected into the Ken Gray Rugby Academy - Petone Rugby Club. When I moved to the UK I played National League Rugby Union for North Walsham Rugby Club as well as representing Eastern Counties.
In recent years I have turned to Judo, mountain biking, road cycling and kayaking.
I truly believe that my sporting experiences give me an edge to helping others in Sports Massage Therapy.
When I have down time I enjoy spending time with my German Shepherd and Siberian Husky.
