Clinical Biography

Mazeie grew up and still lives in Shepton Mallet. She graduated in 2014 from the University of the West of England (UWE) with a first class honours degree in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation. Throughout her university course, she obtained certificates in sports massage, combined taping and strapping, FA intermittent standard first aid and is competent at many treatment techniques such as manual handling, thermal therapy, electrotherapy and exercise prescription.

From attending UWE, Mazeie had the opportunity to work in the outpatients department at Weston General Hospital. This has helped to expand her knowledge of surgical repairs, particularly of an ACL reconstruction, by rehabilitating patients from an early stage. Throughout her time at Weston General Hospital, Mazeie was a major influence in the ACL rehabilitation classes, ran 3 times a week, taking group sessions and interacting with all members of the class. Alongside hospital experience, Mazeie has also spent some time with Somerset County Cricket Club, a professional sporting team. She has a variety of knowledge from early stage rehabilitation to late stage and return to sport from the experience she has gained.

During the course of her degree, Mazeie had vast experience with local sports clubs. After obtaining her FA intermittent standard first aid certificate, she joined Paulton Rovers Football Club aiding with pitch side injuries throughout their season in 2012-2013. She then moved to Wells RFC for the 2013-2014 season to widen her sporting and injury knowledge by providing pitch side first aid assistance and rehabilitation clinics on training nights. Currently, Mazeie is still working with Wells RFC whilst providing a set of extra hands to other local clubs in the area such as: Shepton Mallet Football Club, Tor RFC, Exeter City Academy Football Club and Ashcott & Shapwick Cricket Club. Also, through home massage, Mazeie sees a variety of clients from the general public to bodybuilders, cyclists and dancers.

Personal Statement

I studied Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation from my personal interest in sport and fascination of the human body. I think it’s remarkable how the body is able to repair itself and with assistance, can become stronger to meet the needs of individuals. Your body can develop in a way to suit you and your lifestyle. However, sometimes you may need a helping hand getting over hurdles in order to reach the finish line, something my profession excels in!

My aim is to provide effective and efficient treatment to tackle any ‘niggles’ or injuries you may have. All injuries/dysfunctions originate from somewhere; therefore I am interested in discovering the underlying cause to solve the problem! The desire that I have for my job comes from seeing improvements and benefits in individual’s lifestyles from the help that I have given, allowing people to continue with the hobbies and activities that they love.

I believe the best rehabilitation is achieved by having a good therapist, the right rehab, good rapport and an eager patient. A main motto that I follow throughout life is ‘You only get out what you put in’. Therefore, although I will provide a high standard of treatment, I believe the patient should aim to work to the best of their ability too, a major factor influencing success.

Sports therapy, rehabilitation and massage are a big part of my life and I am lucky enough to love my job, amplifying my dedication to this profession with a goal to become a recognised and respected rehabilitator. I enjoy watching players return to the sport that they love or patients commenting on how much better they are feeling after treatment sessions, this is what thrives my passion.

Research is forever emerging, educating the practitioner on new treatments. As a rehabilitator I am continuously learning to ensure I am providing the most current techniques. Everybody is different, therefore rehabilitation is individual specific and adapted to suit the demands of the patients and their lifestyle. There is something for everyone at Active Health.

With my knowledge, skills and ability, I look forward to helping you all.
