Northern Ballet School

Northern Ballet School

The Manchester based Northern ballet school has over 90,000 full time and part time dance students specialising in a range of styles such as jazz, ballet, contemporary and ballroom. When approaching end of year exams and performances a student support officer reported a high number of students suffering from muscular aches and delayed onset of muscle soreness due to an increase in rehearsal schedule. The student support officer contacted TxOH to investigate if there were any occupational health services to support the students.

The intervention

Following a consultation with the therapists at TxOH a weekly onsite masage therapy service was organised and implemented. The massage therapists at TxOH attended the Northern ballet school to provide massage treatment including sports massage, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy.

The results

Four weeks following the initiation of onsite massage therapy the complaints of muscular aches and delayed onset of muscle soreness from the students had dramatically reduced. The student support officer was happy with the support given to the students and requested regular visits from the massage therapists during the run up to future performances and events.
