Helen uses a series of assessments to help diagnose the problem area. Problematic areas are pinpointed and then treated with the use of manual therapy, movement and early stage exercise prescription to gradually restore optimal function. Working on the premise that it is not always the site of pain that is the cause of the problem, Helen will use her extensive diagnostic tool kit to approach the body as a whole to help determine the source of the problem bridging the gap between injury and your return to active everyday living and/or your sport.
Once rehabilitation of the area has been achieved, a progressive exercise programme can be designed. This will help decrease the risk of further injury whilst progressing to restore fitness to the same level or even better than before
I originally went to see Helen for a sports massage when training for the London Marathon and suffering from niggly glutes. As well as relieving the pain through massage and manipulation, Helen also looked at my biomechanics and assessed my gait. She gave me strengthening exercises to compliment my marathon training and reduce the risk of future injury. She also looked at my training plan and made some suggestions as well as giving me advice regarding nutrition and fueling. In essence, Helen provides the whole package! As a qualified sports massage therapist myself, I am very very picky but would whole heartedly recommend Helen – she has been an absolute god send for me!

When I started individual sessions with Helen, I was in poor shape: no stamina, lack of strength, knee, back, arm and shoulder problems, and a growing lack of confidence in my sense of balance. I was 65 but felt much older. A few weeks later, these issues were starting to reverse, and a few months later, they had gone: I now feel 20 years younger, strong, pain-free, with a renewed sense of wellbeing and confidence. And this is all because…Helen is extremely knowledgeable yet constantly eager to learn, she combines a rigorous science-based approach with an understanding of what makes people tick, and as a psychologist myself, I’m awed by her ability to communicate and motivate in a warm, caring and humorous way. In short, Helen is a top-class fitness expert as well as a lovely person and I highly recommend working with her.
