Sports Massage Therapist
My name is Joké Adejumo (otherwise referred to as Jac). I am a qualified soft tissue therapist, focusing primarily with sports and deep tissue massage techniques. I work with my clients from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8.
Prior to founding my own private practice, I had always lived a very active lifestyle, competing in athletics, dancing and then finally progressing into kickboxing and boxing. As well as this, I trained a designer in Central London and have worked for a number of years as a researcher, consultant and project manager within the creative industries. From 2012, I found myself gradually slipping into a sedentary lifestyle, cutting corners with my own physical and mental wellbeing leaving me plagued with more chronic injuries than ever and in an incredible amount of pain.
In 2018 I decided to take back control of my overall wellbeing and restore a sense of alignment. With an intensive rehabilitation programme including regular sports massage, exercise and physiotherapy, I started to notice positive changes, physically, thus sparking an even deeper interest my own anatomy and understanding of how small misalignments can throw the entire biomechanics’ out of sync. Subsequently, I qualified in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy and founded my own private practice (Align London) with the understanding that mental wellbeing supports physical wellbeing and vice versa.
Through my practice I believe that massage therapy is open to all, no one is automatically disqualified. In a short amount of time, I have had great success treating people with a wide range of problems for a example a nurse suffering with very tight shoulders, a writer with jaw pain and even a boxer with neck stiffness.
I treat a range of symptoms from persistent chronic injury caused by lifestyle factors or dysfunctions resulting from acute injury. The aim is always to improve your quality of life, at times this may cause temporary discomfort, however I always aim to stay within your tolerance levels. The main objective is to relieve muscle pains and tensions, providing the necessary physical and mental capacity to focus on making further positive changes.
