Activate Training and Sports Therapy

Lucy McDonald, owner of Activate Training and Sports Therapy, is a fully qualified sports therapist, fitness instructor and pilates instructor and runs a clinic at Badgemore Park every Monday.

She believes that sports therapy is not just for athletes but can be applied to anyone who has muscles or soft tissue pain; whether that be from overuse, bad posture or injury specific pain. Whether you have a specific injury or just want a maintenance massage to ensure your muscles are well looked after, then Lucy would be delighted to help you.

As a Sports Therapist she is experienced in dealing with musculoskeletal problems, treating pain and injury through a variety of hands-on treatment modalities. She helps her clients to learn about their bodies and how to rehabilitate injuries, ensuring they are back on their feet as quickly as possible. She focuses on restoring, maintaining and maximising movement & relieving pain. Simply put, she can help you move better and feel better.

She has always been involved in Sports and has represented England in Touch Rugby for 6 years, retiring in 2019. She loves working with athletes and has experience with a number of national and international athletes, but you absolutely don’t have to be an athelete to come and see her. Whatever your level of activity Lucy would be delighted to help you.
