- Sport and Exercise Science Hons degree (University of Hertfordshire, 2008)
- Post grad diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy (NLSSM, 2011)
I have worked in professional sport for the last 6 years within both Premiership Football (West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion)
and Premiership Rugby Union (Worcester Warriors) as the Lead Soft Tissue Therapist within highly skilled multi-disciplinary medical departments,
whilst also building a private client base alongside.
I have now, however, decided to move full time into the freelance game and I am looking to offer my services at Phoenix Gym Evesham.
Despite my speciality undoubtedly being sports people I am also very experienced in all aspects of Soft Tissue Therapy and my treatments can benefit ALL people in the following ways:
relieve aches + pains, aid injury rehabilitation/prevention, assist postural correction + relieve physical restrictions
My name is Dan Keogh and I am a married father of one little boy, Jack.
We live locally and have done for the last 3 years having moved up from the south east.
I am a massive Rugby Union enthusiast whilst also following Football but having spent a lot of time working in Premiership Football I must admit my enthusiasm has wavered somewhat!
Following the completion of my Sports Science degree at University of Hertfordshire in 2008 I worked in primary schools for 3 years as a sports coach before undertaking my post-grad diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy at NLSSM in London.
I managed to graduate from this course with a job lined up in Premiership Football and for the last 6 years I have worked in elite sports.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in sport however family comes first and the travel especially takes its toll.
Thus, I hereby commence my new venture!!
“Dan's an exceptional practitioner. I booked in frequently with Dan and his ability to get to the heart of a problem quickly was a god send to an over-the-hill back rower.
Dan was always in demand and I learned to book in early each week to avoid missing out. He quickly built a rapport with all the players and in doing so could tailor his treatment to each individual.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan to anyone that was in need of the very highest level of quality treatment."
Phil Dowson (England, Worcester Warriors, Northampton Saints, Newcastle Falcons)
“Throughout my time at Worcester Warriors I got to work with Dan on a daily basis. He was always my choice of soft tissue therapist at the club. He was brilliant at what he did and on top of that a great guy too.
I would recommend him to anyone who was looking to get soft tissue done."
Francois Hougaard (South Africa, Worcester Warriors, South africa 7's, Blue Bulls, Western Province)
“For me keeping on top of my body is vital as I not only play football full time but I am a huge cycling enthusiast so having someone like Dan to help me maintain my physical state and allow me to recover effectively is a god send.
I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone!"
