To whom it may concern
It is my pleasure to confirm that Philip Bedford attended the Aviva Indoor Grand Prix held in at the National Indoor Arena, Birmingham on Saturday 21st February 2009 as a Sports Soft Tissue Therapist.
UK Athletics are world leading in hosting the biggest and most successful televised events on the Track and Field calendar and have a great reputation for providing the best and most qualified therapists. It is my responsibility to appoint suitably qualified therapists to provide treatment to the world’s best athletes (including 2008 Olympic medal winners) who are invited to compete. UKA must ensure that these athletes receive the most professional care during training and competition to prevent injury whilst they are at the event.
Phillip provided his skilful service over three days at the event headquarters and National Indoor Arena. Philip mainly attended to the competing British and International athletes who greatly appreciated his expertise, they regularly commented on Philip’s friendly nature and his professionalism.
In my opinion Philip was hard working, more than willing to work as a team as well as independently and more than competent in providing treatment to the world’s elite athletes!
UK Athletics will not hesitate in employing or recommending Philip Bedford to provide a soft tissue treatment service in the near future.

I have employed Phil Bedford for physiotherapy and sports injury massage on several occasions over the last three years.
Phil was immensely helpful and patient in his treatment of my frozen shoulder (rotator cuff adhesions), which is a painful and chronic condition. He supported and hastened my recovery with regular physical manipulation and with a supportive regime of exercises. I am certain that without him my recovery would have been much slower and less complete.
More recently, I have suffered tennis related injuries to my elbow (tendonitis) and my calf (muscular tears). On both occasions, Phil Bedford gave instant remedial help of the highest quality and I was soon back on court. His help and advice is always provided with kindness, consideration and good humour. He is an immensely accomplished masseur with a great variety of skills, as well as being a person of honesty and integrity.
During this same period I was pleased to recommend Phil to my wife and to other friends for non-injury related therapies. Again, his treatment was superb. I can recommend him without reservation to any individual or organisation.
Testimonial for Philip Bedford
Sports Massage Treatment
Philip Bedford comes to you very highly recommended by us. We have known him over the last eight years and have had regular treatments to great effect.
My husband, a musician and artist, had a painful neck and shoulder RSI type condition, which Phil worked on with care and intelligence with the outcome of enabling Paul to continue working. As a Headteacher, I spend quite a lot of time working, and too often on a computer, and I find a massage with Phil the best way to relax after a long week!
We have recommended him to many friends all over the years and they have called him time and time again, for a variety of treatments: massage, particular tissue work on an area of problem.
He is honest, truthful, intuitive and reliable. His friendly and easy manner and good humour takes away any awkwardness that may be felt during such close ‘bodywork’. He has always dealt with all his clients with ultimate professionalism and sensitivity.
I have no hesitation in offering this testimonial and I wish him all the best for his future.
We shall certainly miss him in

Introduction to Massage for beginners
1st November 2009
"I really enjoyed the half day introduction to massage therapy. This was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and we were able to learn about, practice and experience a number of different massage techniques in a laid back, friendly environment - and received a handbook to take away with us. We were all beginners and so all in the same boat, more or less, and the afternoon was fun and a good laugh with the right balance of theory and practice. Sign me up for the Intermediate class!"
See you again soon
a quick update:
Firstly thanks for a really fantastic workout/massage last night, it really does seem that we are getting to the root of my problem now thanks to your perseverance.
Last night there was so much releasing going on! I think you shifted a huge of amount of blocked stuff in me, later on in the eve I developed a terrible headache and my eyes went really red like I was really hungover or stoned (like in the old days!)- and felt quite emotional too, Blimey! what a session.
Today things are much much better - I had have two great stretches today, deep and long, and nearly all the pain in my hips has eased, and all the cramping in my lower back has gone!! I can now really feel that main muscle - is it the glut? - quite solid in my left behind and have been working it and stretching it out, so painful so guess there is a nerve right in it or by it.
Hopefully things will keep on improving over the week as I stretch and look forward to seeing you next week.
hope all is going well for you and you are having a good day :)
enjoy yourself - I can see that you normally do!
