Physio's based at Liskeard:
I gained my Pilates qualifications with the APPI in 2007 and have previously taught Pilates – up to 12 classes per week! I have found the Pilates hugely beneficial on a personal level with my other passion, which is horse riding.
In addition to my physiotherapy tools, I am also qualified in the use of acupuncture for pain relief and musculoskeletal disorders, and I am a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. I have had success treating a variety of ailments with acupuncture from Sciatica to headaches, Arthritic knees to children with chronic pain.
I have a special interest in the treatment, management and prevention of sports injuries and for five years I spent my Tuesday and Thursday evenings, as well as Saturdays working with rugby players; Initially a local amateur team and then in a semi-professional environment at Launceston (it’s not as glamorous as you think!).
