ELENA LONG PhD
Elena was born in Ukraine. She graduated from the university with 1st class degree in Applied Mathematics in 1985 and spent her early years lecturing Computer Sciences. She was a keen sportswoman, rowing, swimming and playing volleyball for more than 25 years. Elena came to England 18 years ago and went to study politics at the Plymouth University. She was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree in 2013.
Elena believed that you need to train not just your body but also your brain. Through the years she has a deep interest in human body and new treatments for the sports injuries as well as its rehabilitation, and decided to follow her dream to be a sports injuries therapist. Along with the study for her doctor’s degree, Elena finished her Sports Massage qualification and now is a member of Federation of Holistic Therapists.
A lot of people believe that you need to be sportsmen to benefit from a sports massage. However from time to time we all feel sore and tender. Regular sports massage provides excellent maintenance for muscle tone, mobility and stamina, enabling muscles to work harder, be pain free and reducing the risk of long-term injury. In addition we should not forget that massage is extremely effective in relaxing not only the body but also the mind. In her free time Elena enjoys walking, swimming and reading.
