Ambassador: Hannah Harding
I couldn't be more delighted to of been asked to be an ambassador for Neon Sports Massage. Being a surfer and now mum the daily strains and aches take their toll more than ever. I have always suffered from lower back ache and in my shoulders from paddling. And now that I'm carrying my son around everywhere too this has only added to it. But I am already feeling the benefits from the sessions I have had from Nell. I've had treatment in the past but nothing has got close to this! I'm already feeling a lot less strained and tight. It's like I've been given a new lease of life and I'm so excited to be working with Nell knowing that I will be listened to so closely and to be worked on exactly where I need it! I'm honoured to be an ambassador for Neon Sports Massage and would recommend anyone, athlete or not, to try it out!
Hannah Harding, pro surfer and mum
Welcoming Hannah as a new Ambassador!
We're so happy to have Hannah join us as an ambassador!
Hannah is a competitive surfer and was a long-term serving team member for Animal. She was English Women's Champion in 2012 and UK Pro Surf Tour Champ in 2011. She is also Ambassador the the Cornwall-based charity the Wave Project, helping improve children’s health through surfing. Hannah is mum to her beautiful 1-year old son Reggie, and so in addition to surfing aches and issues, she also has mummy-shoulder too! (official terminology ;) ) so we hope to help Hannah keep well as Reggie grows as well as during her future surf comps!
Sports massage for Hannah*
Hannah first came to us for lower back issues - partly from surfing and arching the lower back during paddling, and also party from carrying little Reggie around. We helped alleviate some of the lower back pain, and also in the wrist and arm from carrying her baby around. We've also been working on her shoulders to reduce tension and knots, and boost flexibility and condition, to help her with paddling!
Hannah's approach to surfing
Hannah's had a long career surfing, and six months after the birth of her first child, she was already competing in Boardmasters, one of the UK's biggest surf comps! She's an inspiration to surfers and non-surfers alike to keep going and keep smiling! :)
* please note Hannah's signed a release form for us to talk about her surfing and sports massage treatments - we don't just blab about our clients to anyone!
