Siôn-Dafydd from Felinfoel: Now a qualified Sports Massage Therapist

AFTER studying a part-time evening course at Coleg Sir Gâr, Sion-Dafydd Williams has set-up his own company and become a self-employed Sports Massage Therapist.

Siôn-Dafydd, from Felinfoel, began the course as a keen sportsman who had undergone many injuries in his sporting career and therefore had an interest in the benefits of sports massage and how it worked.

“The course has helped me in a lot of ways,” he said.

“It’s developed my massage ability along with my understanding of the body and in particular the muscles origin and insertion points.”

Working under his own name of Siôn-Dafydd Williams Massage Therapist, he is now running his own business from home as well as studying for his BSc Sports Coaching and Performance at Coleg Sir Gâr.

Rhian Davies, Sports Massage Lecturer at Coleg Sir Gâr, added: “Siôn- Dafydd has taken the opportunity to get qualified though a local part-time evening course, which is great if you’re already working or want a change of career.

“Although beneficial, this year we’re not asking for anatomy and physiology qualifications for entry requirements as it features as a main topic which is covered as part of the course criteria.”
