Jordan Shelley

I graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2018 with a BSc (Hons) in Sports Conditioning, Rehabilitation and Massage. I am currently in my third season with the Cardiff Devils, an elite ice hockey team here in Cardiff, where I provide deep tissue massage for the team. This has also led me to work with a number of rugby teams in the local area, where I provide medical treatment at training sessions and matches. This includes pitchside support and the management of player injuries, pre match strapping and kinesiology taping and sports massage.

When I’m not working in sport, I am clinic based. My area of interest is Sports Massage Therapy.  Sports Massage is not only beneficial for elite athletes; it can also help those who have demanding jobs or chronic aches and pains. I treat musculoskeletal issues using a variety of techniques and instruments. For example, Percussive Therapy for pain relief and to increase range of motion and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, to assist in effective treatment of adhesions and scarring brought on by surgeries, injuries and overuse of muscles.

From an early age I have been involved with sports and had my fair share of injuries not all sports related and know first-hand how sports massage can benefit you and get you back to your day to day activities.
