Hayley Heggie from Farm Fitness

Hayley Heggie

Sports Therapist

I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2007, with an honours degree in Sports Therapy. At the time I was in the England Hockey Under 21 squad. Lucky enough to play in test matches versus Australia and attend training camps in Hamburg and Barcelona. We used to ice bath a lot then, so my 3rd year thesis was into the effects of ice baths on recovery (hoping to prove it wrong!) Love them now and I recommend them often!

I’ve played hockey for Chelmsford HC, Scotland Under 18, England Under 21 and have 1 senior England cap. I’ve also ventured into running (marathon and ocr) and CrossFit where I found a love for lifting weights! After becoming a mum, researching and rehabbing myself, I added a pre/post natal qualification. Having experienced the need for real problem solving soft tissue work, during these times.

Finally, I found Farm Fitness which has helped me back to feeling fitter than I have ever been and I can’t see me training anywhere else!

All of which, has shaped the focus of the massage services I provide. Drawing on my experiences, to be relatable to most complaints that clients come to me with.

  • Sports massage
  • Soft tissue release
  • Graston technique IASTM
  • Assisted stretching techniques
  • Mobility advice
  • Pregnancy massage
  • Post natal massage
  • *coming soon* Dry Needling
