Sports Therapist, Rebecca Behan delivers the practical content of the unit and has been coming into BTC since 2010. Rebecca currently works at the Crescent Clinic in Taunton but is also a Sports Therapist at premiership rugby club Bath RFC, Somerset Cricket Club, and has recently returned from the Six Nations with the England RFC.


Course Leader Jonny Hunt said:

“To be able to have Beck deliver on Sport and Exercise Science is a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn from. Her vast experience working within the Sports Therapy industry is remarkable and is truly inspirational. She is not only able to share her experiences to motivate students, she is able to use this knowledge to teach the students in a professional manner to practically learn industry skills. The students thoroughly enjoyed performing different massage techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, trigger pointing and much more!”



Student Josh Sampson said:

“The massage practical sessions we had with Beck were informative, fun and very much a hands on experience. The way in which we were the massage techniques was well thought out and delivered professionally, this has given me more insight to prepare me well as I am aspiring to become a Sports Therapist. It also gave my course a great industry perspective in which I feel I have learnt lots in.”
