With my physiotherapy training I am also able to advise you on rehabilitation exercises for the management and prevention of sports injuries.
I have a hands on approach and my aim is to provide immediate relief from symptoms. Typically this may include massage, mobilisations and stretches. For your comfort I use a variable height treatment table at both my clinics.

The exercises, stretches, and posture techniques I use are based on my training in both shiatsu and physiotherapy. And I don’t just hand out exercise sheets, I will prove that the exercises or stretches can help and really show you how to do them to best effect.
Many of these techniques are contained in my book ‘Mind Your Body’ which has now been republished. (Click here to find out more)
