Joanne Richards MISRM


I started Complete Massage Oxford over 12 years ago, after completing the Level 5 Sports and Remedial Massage qualification with the Oxford School of Sports Massage (formerly Pulse Training Solutions). The training there is of the highest standards in anatomy and physiology and practical application of massage, muscle energy techniques and soft tissue release.

I’ve played field hockey locally for over 15 years and I’m keen runner. Therefore, very aware of what injuries can occur during sporting activity, as well as how occupational and life stresses can impact on the body to stop us feeling and performing at our best. I find Yoga, Pilates and Strength training great ways to compliment my other sports.

I am committed to providing the most up to date advice and believe there is always so much to learn about the body. I am one of the first 100 ‘Foot Nerds’ to take part in a program to learn about health from the feet up. The Foot Collective is a global community of like minded individuals that really just want to help people feel better in themselves long term, without the need to rely on surgery and medication.

Currently a member of the Institute of Sport & Remedial Massage, who set the standard for practitioners in the UK. For more information visit
