WHAT I OFFER
Whether you've got an injury, are recovering from an injury, or have a niggle, you will have a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment, including in-depth information gathering about your problem, and a detailed objective assessment including manual tests and movements. Subsequently we will work together to create an appropriate treatment plan to achieve your goals. This can consist of manual therapy, exercise therapy, and functional movements, and often includes a home exercise programme.
I offer a 45 minute initial assessment and 30 minute follow up appointments.
What I treat:
Shoulder injuries and upper limb disorders
Sports and soft tissue injuries
Triathlon related injuries
Endurance sports related injuries
Neck and back pain
Hip, knee and ankle pain
- Repetitive strain and overuse injuries
Paediatric musculoskeletal injuries and conditions
If you think you may benefit from physiotherapy but don't identify with anything on the list please get in contact
Sports massage can help anyone as it has many benefits including increased levels of relaxation, reduced physical and psychological stress levels, increased flexibility, decreased muscle stiffness and post exercise muscle soreness, and improved circulation.
Sports massage is a great way to treat muscle injuries and pain. It can also help reduce your recovery time after injury. If you regularly participate in sport or exercise, then adding sports massage into your routine can help improve performance as well as help prevent injuries. I like to include sports massage as an adjunct to exercise and rehabilitation, however I don't believe that it is something you should rely on to keep you healthy and exercising.
If you feel you might benefit from sports massage but aren't sure, please get in contact for further information.
Sports massages are 30mins or 60mins.
Gift vouchers are also available.
The APPI Pilates method aims to create a strong foundation (known as your core), and working with your breath uses set exercises to build up your strength, flexibility and endurance. It improves body awareness, general fitness and wellbeing, and can improve posture, reduce pain and help prevent injury. Sometimes we will use equipment to vary exercises, including soft balls, small weights, balance pads, exercise bands and the Pilates wheel.
It is suitable for everyone, from beginner to expert, as all of the exercises can be tailored specifically to you and progressed at your own pace.
I currently offer 1:1 hour long sessions, the first of which will involve a half hour assessment so we can create you an individually tailored Pilates programme. Subsequent sessions can either be an hour or 30 minutes.
Offers on block bookings are also available.
Do you have a small group of friends who would all like to try Pilates? I also offer group Pilates of up to 5 people at a reduced rate per person. You don't all have to be the same level as I can easily tailor programmes within a group.
Have you got an old injury that occasionally flares up and you keep thinking you need to do something about it but don't quite know what to do?
Do you struggle with certain movements in the gym and want to work on your mobility but need some accountability?
Are you working towards a new skill and want some complimentary exercises to help you get that new skill?
We've all got various niggles, or old injuries, or new skills we want to work on, and often we don't know where to start or what to do. And we've all seen those dedicated people in the gym working on their accessory exercises.
I offer a one- off assessment of 60 minutes where we can have a chat about what you want to work on, have a look at how you're moving, and come up with an accessory programme tailored specifically to you.

Emma has kept a knackered body working, without recommending the scrap heap once! Admittedly, the MOTs are becoming more frequent however her knowledge and experience of how the body works and what it can do is a credit to her care and professionalism.
I couldn't recommend Emma more highly. She is so knowledgeable and so kind, and made me feel so much better. Her advice and guidance was really comprehensive and she gave me exercises to work on. She also does great sports massages!
When you are broken and sad about it and then you go and get fixed by Emma, Thank you.
When you can simply put your trust in someone (Emma) and know you're fine. Thank you.
When you can do a gym zoom again because Emma told you your body is able to. Thank you.
