The summer is flying past and we've already successfully supported several events including the Rob Roy Challenge, the Hearts & Heroes Challenge, the London and Edinburgh Marathons, the Cross Border 100, the Oxfam Trailtrekker and the Peak District 100 to name just a few.  Several hundred therapy roles have been filled since April and we've many more to come.  If you are interested in working with us this summer, please read on to find out about requirements we still have.


16/17th JULY 2011
We need physiotherapists, sports therapists and massage therapists to work at this fantastic event which takes place on the South Downs Way, finishing in Brighton.  Participants walk 100km to raise funds for Oxfam and we will be there to help them complete the challenge.  Therapists will be paid between £85 and £100 depending on the time of shift.  This is a 30-hour event and many of the shifts are overnight shifts so you must be willing to work overnight.  Food is provided and you have the option to camp at the locations on the South Downs Way or at the finish at Brighton Racecourse if you are working through the night.  We can provide supervision for students.  You can find more information here.  Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in working at this event.

10/11th SEPTEMBER 2011

We need physiotherapists, sports therapists and massage therapists for the Oxfam Trailtrekker in Ireland in September this year.  This will be our 3rd time at this event which sees participants walk 50km or 100km across the border between Northern and Southern Ireland to raise funds for Oxfam.  As with all Trailwalker/trekker events there will be overnight shifts and you must be willing to work them.  Students can work and we will provide supervision.  Food and basic accommodation is provided.  Please click here for more info.  Email me if you are interested in working at this event. 


We will be providing massage for participants of the Loch Ness Marathon at the finish line of this beautifully scenic marathon which is in its 10th year.  Participants pay for their massages and therapist will earn a portion of the money raised with the rest going to charity.  Click here for further info and let me know if you'd like to work at this event.

Are you looking to become a full time therapist?  Wondering how to go about getting lots of clients into clinic?

This is a unique opportunity from a former Athletes' Angel that will help you run, manage and develop a successful business as a complementary therapist.
The business for sale is Head And Foot (  The business was set up nearly 10 years ago by Meriel (former Athletes' Angels Manager) just after she had qualified in Reflexology and is now ranked No 1 by Google for "Reflexology in Edinburgh", "Pregnancy Massage in Edinburgh" and " Indian Head Massage in Edinburgh" etc.  It has diversified and grown over the years and has become one of the leading practices in Edinburgh/East Lothian promoting therapists and therapies covering a wide range of treatments.

For more info contact Meriel Younger on or call 07979515426.



We have a client looking for a therapist(s) for a corporate client in Reading.  The therapist would visit once a month to deliver 30 minute slots for staff.  Preferably the therapist will have a few strings to their bow, such as massage, indian head massage, reflexology, etc.  These other therapies are not essential and April Logan is open to discussion with any therapist who would be interested.  Please contact April direct by email or call 07766054019 for further information.

Balens have expert knowledge and experience in providing insurance to all health practitioners.  We highly recommend them to all our therapists.  They are friendly, reliable and will put together a quote for any specification.  Please click on the logo above to access their website.

And finally....

For those of you who have already been hard at work at our events this summer - thank you very much.  You are the key to our success and we have had magnificent feedback already from participants and event organisers.  We have a reputation for going the extra mile and really looking after the people who take part in these amazing events and it's all thanks to the therapists who take part.  Thank you all for your hard work and long may it continue.  
I look forward to seeing some of you again soon.

Best wishes.
