Jacqui Gilbert is a qualified Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist and a member of the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT). She is also a qualified Sports Trainer. Jacqui has been working at Sydney Sports Medicine Centre since early 2008, and has been a patient of all the clinic’s modalities for 7-8 years prior.
As a retired national swimmer, Jacqui understands the strains and rigors the body can be put under while training for and competing in elite sport. Suffering many injuries herself such as over use, instability and impingements she has endured the rehabilitation process many times and thus has a great interest in injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Her background in swimming has led to her interest and involvement in working with NSW Swimming and NSWIS Swimmers both in competition and training phases. She also treats patients from other sports such as athletics, tennis, soccer, diving, cycling, archery and winter sports, as well as with the NSW Institute of Sport.
More recently, Jacqui has been appointed as the Massage Therapist of the Australian Paralympic Swim Team. This has taken her to World Championships, World Cups and Paralympic Pan Pacific Championships around the world. She has also travelled internationally with the Australian Open Water Swim Team, along with participating in many national training camps.
Jacqui worked with the Sydney Swans Football Club for two and a half years as both a Massage Therapist and a Sports Trainer on game days, which saw her travel the interstate with the club’s teams.
Jacqui enjoys working as part of a team in the professional environment at Sydney Sports Medicine Centre alongside Physios, Sports Physicians and Specialists, Exercise Physiologists and Podiatrists and finds that by working together they got the best results for the patient.
Whether it’s a sore neck from studying or long hours spent tied to your desk at work; an injury incurred by playing social or elite sport; or just the rigours or day to day life, Jacqui finds that a combination of soft tissue therapy, myofascial release and dry needling can be a great treatment plan for injury prevention and rehabilitation, and as a way to loosen up and de-stress.
