Andrew O’Brien

I have been a keen rugby union player since the age of 15 and have had my fair share of injuries. I was destined to play in the front row which has meant many visits to the treatment table. In 2002 I went on a tour to America and had my first Sports Massage. The benefit I gained from this was incredible, and in such a short time period. I knew from then that I wanted to dedicate my time to helping people through massage.

Suffering so many different injuries, I’ve had most treatments which are available on the market and what has worked best for me is chiropractic treatment and/or physiotherapy in conjunction with massage. Before I started working at the Oldham Chiropractic Clinic, I had been a client for over 10 years which goes to show just how much faith I have in them!Read more…

Some people can be put off when they hear the words ‘Sports Massage’ as they incorrectly assume they need to be sporty or involved in a specific sport when they do not. Massaging is beneficial to everyone no matter their gender, age, fitness or activity levels.

I provide a full range of massages from relaxing Swedish Body massages, Indian Head massages and Pregnancy Massages to the more vigorous Deep Tissue, Therapeutic and Sports massages. Whatever your needs, I will be able to cater for them whether you have had a sudden acute pain or long standing, chronic symptoms.I have been practicing as a Massage and Sports Massage Therapist for 8 years after qualifying from Oldham College.

I have also successfully completed a whole host of courses at the Manchester School of Massage so that my knowledge is continually developing. I help a variety of people ranging from professional athletes, cyclists, rowers and tri-athletes who require detailed and ongoing treatment programs to ordinary members of the public with bad necks or backs.

Massages compliment physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment so why not ask your treating practitioner for more information next time you are here?
