The Team

WHO WE ARE

Since we started in 2001, we’ve grown to become the UK’s largest provider of therapists for events in the outdoor endurance world. Our very first events were in Scotland, supporting charity fundraising treks and races in the mountains of the Highlands.

Now we work throughout the UK and abroad on a whole range of amazing events and incredible expeditions. We’ve expanded what we do to cover the arts and corporate events so we can work indoors too! We are all athletes in some way and we all benefit from therapy support.

Our operations team has an enormous amount of experience in providing appropriately skilled therapists for any event whether it’s an endurance event raising money for charity or a world record breaking attempt. We are experts in figuring out how many therapists you need for your event and where you’ll need them most. Our therapy teams are highly trained professionals with a love of the outdoors, great energy, enthusiasm, awesome smiles and a love of taking their skills into different and challenging environments.
