Holly Savage

Lecturer in Sports Therapy

I studied at the University of Gloucester back in 2014, graduating with an MSc in Sports Therapy. I have continued to work closely with the Sports Therapy team, as well as working in my own private practice in Bristol specialising in gymnastics and dance.


Since completing my Master’s degree In Sports Therapy I am always seeking and challenging myself with regards to my own personal development. I have enjoyed working alongside multidisciplinary sports teams including, Gloucester Rugby, England ice Hockey, GB Sports Acrobatics and TBA dance school. This has allowed me to see a large range of injuries and also learn to work alongside a large variety of professions.

I have recently expanded my development by joining the Sports Therapy team in 2019, allowing me to pass on my skill set learned throughout my 6 years as a Sports Injury Therapist.
