The Team

Lucy Hole-Thomas

Lucy Hole-Thomas

Founder

Lucy started her career as a Solicitor. She specialised in debt and housing law for 4 years before realising the law was not for her and re-trained in Holistic and then Sports Massage Therapy. She set up ElizabethRose Massage Therapy in 2010, offering relaxing massage and beauty treatments. However, she soon understood that the best type of treatment is one that gets to the root of the problem, physically and emotionally. From there she trained in Sports Massage Therapy and is continually updating her techniques and learning new ones to enhance the treatments for her clients.

The business has evolved over the years to the present day and its present name, LHT Wellness.

Lucy studied her level 3 Diploma’s in Holistic Massage and Sports Massage with Bexley Adult Education, while still working as a solicitor and went on to do her level 5 Diploma in Sport Therapy with Active Health Group. She is currently studying her level 3 Diploma in Personal Training and level 6 in Sports Therapy.

Over the last 5 years, Lucy has worked regularly with local cricket, rugby and football clubs, providing pre, post and inter-match treatments, to help the player perform at their best.

Lucy is a lover of the outdoors and goes sailing, canoeing and walking whenever her free time allows. Having climbed Snowdon and Scarfell Pike, she understands the importance of endurance and muscles working at their optimum level.

Lucy’s ethos is ‘you’re never too old’. If you look after yourself and respect your muscles, you will be able to keep doing the sports and exercise you love into a ripe old age.

Tom Elsom

Tom Elsom

Sports Therapist

Tom believes in a pain-free, active lifestyle. “No pain, no gain” is not Tom’s way. Rather through a combination of manipulations, deep tissue massage and other techniques – designed to treat, rehabilitate, relax and rejuvenate the body and mind – his services both complement and enhance your exercise regime, and generally improve your health.

Tom has strong ties to the fitness industry. Over the last 9 years he has gained invaluable experience working with personal trainers, physiotherapists, podiatrists, chiropractors and athletes, amongst others, all in sports-related settings.

He is a graduate from the University of Bath and a level 5 certified sports and remedial therapist. Since graduation in 2008, his practice has taken him to a number of sports and leisure centres in London and the South East, including Crystal Palace Sports Centre, and his services required at several sports-related events sponsored by Action Medical, British Heart Foundation, Leisure Plan and Fitness Fiesta. He has built up a successful, independent, sports therapy practice in East Sussex.

If Tom had a strap line it would read: “After 30 minutes with me you’ll walk out better than you walked in”

I rely on my treatment from ER Health and Fitness to keep working. As a self employed Driving Instructor I need my wits about me, without the pain relief gained from my massage sessions, I certainly would not be able to work.
John, Orpington

Great, Fantastic pamper nights for me and the girls. All of us are nurses and we know we are being treated well. Always a smile on our faces when we know Lucy/ER Health and Fitness is giving us the treatment!
Tracy, Orpington

I have been a client of Lucy's for a couple of years now. I originally went to her as I was suffering from various sports injuries. Not only did she help me but our regular treatments have allowed me to continue as an active sportsman even though I'm nearing 50. I would highly recommend her.
Noel

I have been seeing Lucy for over a year now which started with a sport injury but I have carried on with her as I love my one hour of unwinding and relaxing.
Terry

A few years ago my personal trainer introduced me to Lucy, to treat a niggling sports injury. I was so impressed with the initial treatments, advice and support provided by Lucy that I now see her (or Tom) on a very regular basis (approx. every 4-6 weeks).  I view my treatments as an integral part of maintaining a healthy, fit and stress free body. I have no hesitation in recommending ER Health and Fitness - an extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and reliable team.

Brilliant Vocal Massage - really recommend it to any singers, actors, teachers or those who use their voice to make their living ... Or anyone  who talks a lot.
Diane Ebden

First post pregnancy work out with Lucy from ER health and fitness - didn't kill me but def feel like I had a good workout. Really looking forward to the next session now.
Rebecca Cardy

Totally Amazing! The sports massage on my knee after injury has got me back walking, dancing, spinning and now training for a half marathon- thank you - would highly recommend.
Nadia Ryman

Just a little while ago I had the most wonderful "vocal massage", specifically worked for the opening and relaxation of the throat and chest. To say it was amazing does not do it justice, I was singing everyday after the treatment, either rehearsing or performing and the benefits were fantastic, I was very focused on how open and free my singing was. I had to use a mic in performance and when using a mic I tend to concentrate on support from the diaphragm even more as to not rely on the mic for support and I believe this treatment was very helpful for that. Excellent.
