The Sports Therapy Association Podcast is recorded LIVE every Tuesday at 8pm (UK) on the Sports Therapy Association YouTube channel and Facebook Page, and then uploaded as a podcast. You do not have to be an STA member to attend the live recordings - it is a chance to network with fellow therapists and discuss topics that together help us all move forward as an industry. The goal of the podcast, hosted by Matt Phillips (creator of runchatlive.com), is to deliver to Soft Tissue Therapists of all levels (including massage therapists, sports therapists, physiotherapists, podiatrists, chiropractors, etc.) up to date information on how to be a modern, successful, effective health care practitioner, with a gold star reputation for being able to help people in pain and/or looking for performance gains. The Sports Therapy Association (STA) is a professional representation for Sports Therapists, Sports Injury Therapists and Soft Tissue Therapists. We have worked passionately to develop a truly independent and ethical association that is committed to raising standards across the industry and progressing opportunities for our valued members.

We're on a countdown to Therapy Expo 2023 at the Birmingham NEC this November, chatting LIVE with speakers who will be presenting in the STA Update Theatre. In this episode, our guest is Dr Lucy Williamson, award winning nutritionist and founder of the Gut Health Project, who will be in the STA Theatre at 9.15am on Day 1 of Therapy Expo, presenting 'Personalised Nutrition For The Future: Gut Microbiome'.
In this episode of the podcast, host Matt Phillips of runchatlive asks Dr Lucy Williamson what soft tissue therapists will gain from attending her presentation at Therapy Expo, sparking discussion of the clear links that modern research is showing between gut microbiome health and physical & mental wellness.
