“Currently MIMT students help first team players prepare for games and training on a daily basis. The feedback we get from the players, which are the most important people at the club, is that MIMT students are fantastic, they have a willingness to learn and they fit in well with our team.
They also get to come into the physio room and see how we do things and they get a big experience from that.”

This weekend I attended the Introduction to Massage course. I was a little apprehensive to start with as it had been a long time since I was in a learning environment. The morning ice breaker enabled everyone to let their guards down and I became more at ease and settled into what was a fantastic course and learning experience.
