Meet the Leeds Circle8 Massage Team

Anthony Varenne

My names Anthony Varenne, I am the owner of  Circle8Massage.  I am a highly qualified and experienced Sports massage & Deep Tissue Massage therapist, holding both level 3 & level 4 sports massage qualifications & a glass cupping qualification.  In addition to this I hold a level 3 personal training qualification, a corrective exercise qualification and am GP referral qualified meaning I can take on clients from GP's and physiotherapists.

 Being a personal trainer & coming from a gym background I will be able to identify any aches & pains you may have in your muscles as well as any postural and alignment issues. 


I complete new courses every year to ensure I am fully up to date with any new techniques or research being published . I have been taught by some excellent tutors who have worked with high level football and rugby teams so rest assured I have been taught well.


I have clients from all backgrounds, from people sat at a desk all day, to bodybuilders, professional rowers and even massage an Olympic snowboarder.  In 2019 I worked with the Elite USA Triathlon teams prior to the Leeds Triathlon and massaged Taylor Spivey who is the world number 2 and also massaged Matt Mcelroy who picked up a podium place.

  I am an accredited member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, therefore if you have health insurance you will be able to claim back the cost of your massage.

Don't let your body hold you back, whether you are an avid gym goer or simply spend a lot of time sat down you will really benefit from a sports massage.


Domenic Catalfamo

I'm Dom Catalfamo, a personal trainer and accredited sports massage therapist in Leeds.

I have a sports background, and my experience in personal training and sports massage has enabled me to treat and rehabilitate injuries and pains of all kinds.   I am also accredited with the FHT therefore you will be able to claim back the cost of your massage if you have health insurance.

I have a Diploma in Exercise Sports Science and a Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage. These qualifications have allowed me to be involved in the industry for over a decade, continually doing further research to keep up to date with practices.

My clients vary from novices to elite athletes and people with any injuries or pains, who feel like they need some advice and massage therapy.

Jade Danes

I’m Jade and I have a BSc in Sport and Exercise Therapy. I have gained a lot of experience in Sports Massage carrying out placement with professional rugby teams.

After graduating I have worked with rugby teams providing pitch side cover which includes emergency first aid, taping and pre match massage, as well diagnosing and rehabilitating injuries through specific programmes.

As well as working with sporting people I also work with those who have day to day niggles -from those who work in desk jobs to those who partake in recreational sport.

I do a lot of continuous research to further my knowledge and ensure my techniques are the most relevant as I want my clients to get the most out of their treatment. I shall be looking into different courses to gain further qualifications to provide a wider range of services - watch this space.

Hannah Vigilante

I’m Hannah, a BSc Sports and Exercise Therapy Graduate, currently furthering my studies by completing a Masters degree in Sports and Exercise Medicine. I have gained a lot of experience in Sports Massage and treating musculoskeletal injuries at Leeds Beckett University Massage & Injury Clinic, whilst also on placement with professional clubs, such as; Leeds Rhinos, Hunslet RLFC and Bradford City AFC.

After graduating I continued to work with a rugby club providing Pre & Post Training massage and helped out with massage at events such as the Great North Run. I have recently gained the award in The FA Level 4 Intermediate Trauma Medical Management in Football (ITMMiF), meaning I am qualified to provide pitch side cover to a high standard.
Outside my clinic work, I am an active individual and have participated in multiple sports throughout the years. I am currently Rowing for the University team, where I am also the Club President. From this, I know what it is like to be injured or have aches and pains stopping you from exercising. That’s why my main goal as a Sports Therapist is to help clients get back to a good physical state as quicklyas possible.
