Liney McDonald

BA (Hons), LSSM Level 5 Member of the SMA.

Liney qualified as a Sports and Remedial Massage therapist in 2010 and holds the highest level of accreditation from the association of Soft Tissue Therapists.

Liney started her career at Worthing Rugby Club working alongside a team of physios and an osteopath. During that time, she learnt extensive Soft Tissue Therapy skills and developed a keen interest in fixing shoulder and neck issues.

From 2012, she spent three years working at a highly-regarded physiotherapy clinic in West Sussex and in 2015 she started her own private clinic. She has been part of the Ultimate Drive Team at Goodwood since 2015. In 2016, she and her co-Directors established The Boxgrove Clinic.

Every treatment that Liney provides is bespoke and tailored to the individual. She has a strong belief that a treatment should not be painful and does not believe in the philosophy of ‘No Pain No Gain’. She works closely with each patient to achieve results. For those that are interested she prides herself in being able to help her patients understand why they have the issue in the first place and what they can do to prevent it returning. Her treatments are a two-way process with hands on input from Liney and feedback from her patients.
