I am a qualified Sports therapist and Registered Osteopath, with a Master’s degree from the London School of Osteopathy. I also am a Certified Running Technique Specialist.
Throughout my career I’ve worked extensively with both private clients and professional teams including Fulham Football Club and the England Women’s Rugby Squad. I was delighted to have the opportunity to teach sports massage at the Raworth International College of Nutrition and Sports Therapy.
Drawing on my knowledge, experience and extended study, I treat a wide range of problems from the first niggle to more complex injuries. I love helping clients overcome setbacks to achieve their fitness goals – it’s such a rewarding part of my job.
In my spare time I love running, especially on trails, and participate in events of various distances. I enjoy spinning and practise yoga regularly.
I am a sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapist with a BSc in Physiotherapy from Southampton University. With over twenty years’ experience in the field and a strong sporting background, I have built up extensive knowledge of post-operative rehabilitation.
My experience comes from working in the NHS and with private clinics and sports teams. I have toured the UK and Europe with premier league hockey teams – working directly with athletes has really helped me understand the frustrations injuries can cause.
I firmly believe that prevention is better than cure. With that in mind, I focus on optimising function and movement of your entire body to reduce the chance of injury. I provide a full range of physiotherapy treatments including manual techniques, acupuncture and exercise advice to get you fully functional in as little time as possible.
I am a keen sportswomen, and enjoy hockey, running, biking and lots of British Military Fitness sessions!
I have a degree in Sport Rehabilitation and have studyied for a MSc in Strength and Conditioning. I’m also a qualified running biomechanics and technique specialist – focusing on helping runners of all abilities improve their performance and efficiency while reducing the risk of injury.
My experience includes injury rehabilitation and sports therapy for athletes of varying disciplines, including premiership footballers. Through my years in sports rehabilitation, I’ve developed and enhanced some approaches of my own, including video technique analysis and the creation of individual exercise programmes.
I have trained with Gait & Motion and am able to analyse customers using the 2D and 3D Footscan® for the prescription and fitting of Phits® orthotics.
I know how much difference effective, empathetic treatment can make. I’m a keen runner and mountain biker, and have experienced injury and treatment first-hand. I’ve seen how effective it can be – and thanks to the right treatment, returned to participating in events and even completed the odd triathlon!
I’m the Pilates teacher at Fitstuff and I hold the BASI qualification.
I started practising Pilates after an accident in 2013 in which I fractured seven vertebrae. Pilates formed an important part of my rehabilitation and I was able to return to running less than a year later. Having experienced the restorative benefits of Pilates first-hand, I was keen to share my enthusiasm and began teaching.
A strong and balanced body is very important for maintaining good form and endurance when running. But I also know that we need strength in our daily lives, whether we spend our days predominantly sitting or standing. I believe everyone can benefit from a weekly dedicated core-strengthening routine to help restore the body, relieve pain and prevent injury.
My degree is in sports psychology, and I am a qualified sports massage therapist and personal trainer with over seventeen years’ experience in the field. Having competed at a high level before injury interrupted my ambitions, I understand the athlete mentality and form great relationships with my clients. I love providing treatment and advice to help athletes at all levels reach their potential and achieve their goals.
I’m also an expert in sports massage, which benefits those looking for a deep tissue treatment to relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life.
