Sports Massage Therapist
About Charlotte Hewitt
I’m a sport massage therapist and have been working for Katie Bell Physio since July 2021. I am also currently working for a Semi-professional football team in Doncaster. Previous to this I have worked in a sports therapy clinic in Goole, and had many placement experiences prior to that. I have massaged the Spain’s Number 1 squash player who complimented me on being very knowledgeable with great listening skills and showing compassion, compared to other massages he has had globally where he had received a very basic service. I have also completed a full season of voluntary work for the Hull Pirates Ice Hockey team where I gained very valuable experience which I will carry with me throughout my entire professional career.
I feel as though I have an internal need to help people and I love to reap the rewards when someone progresses from feeling very run down due to injury or a condition, to being in top shape again after receiving treatment from me. The verbal feedback as well as the physical progression makes me feel very accomplished. I aim to ensure every client is treated with the upmost respect and feels as though they are receiving the best quality treatment.
I love that the Katie Bell Physio clinic has a great community vibe and that it seems like a big family to be a part of. I also love that there are so many professions and services offered by the clinic, and I would love to learn more about each profession and potentially extend my services by gaining qualifications in these areas.

Hobbies, Hidden Talents & More Info
I have always enjoyed playing sport and keeping fit throughout my life. I am passionate about football and rounders and I am currently looking to find a team in one or both of these sports. I also enjoy going to the gym and running to keep myself fit as well to maintain my health and wellbeing. I really enjoy travelling and exploring new countries.
When I was young I wanted to be a Vet, as I have always loved animals and wanted to help them if they were feeling ill or injured. My secret talent is that I can sing and play the piano.
