BTST Sponsorship Programme

BTST understands that in order to become a high level athlete, it takes more than the blood, sweat and tears you put into training to become the best, and that the money involved to get to the top often falls to the athlete to find. 

Therefore, finding money for therapy costs can sometimes be hard. Thats why at BTST we created our Sponsorship Programme where we offer manual therapy through Osteopathy, Sports Massage and Personal Training, so we can ensure we keep our athletes at the top of their game!

Training & Competition Demands

A lot of sportsmen and women worry about having treatment…. fearing the words “you need to rest / stop training”. We at BTST understand this is often not an option, therefore we work with you every step of the way to ensure we fit around your training & competition schedules to keep you on track!

What Oliver has to say about BTST

“Competing at a high level,  having good treatment with a therapist who is extremely knowledgable and whom I fully trust is essential. Therefore, I am very grateful to have found Becky Tyler at BTST and cannot recommend her enough. 

Becky is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and talented at what she does, always able to get to the source of the problem which isn’t always where the pain is. She’s able to simply tune into where she needs to work, finding all my muscular tension and joint restriction with ease. 

She keeps me at full strength and ride fit so I can do what I do best!”
