I am a Sport Therapist who firmly believes that physical activity is the key factor for health and wellbeing. Member of the Sport Therapy Association and the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, I am specialised in “Musculoskeletal Injury Rehabilitation” and “Physical Activity in Health and Disease”.
I love sports and I have always been very active since I was a child. However, unpleasant things happen and following a knee injury I soon discovered how pain and muscle imbalance can negatively affect life.
Every day I help people who suffered from an injury, or had surgery, to take their life back. I also help people who suffer from diseases such as diabetes, back pain, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, headache, migraines, sciatica, PCOS, thyroid diseases and joint pain, to manage their condition and live a healthy life. I create bespoke strength and neuromuscular conditioning plans and provide manual therapy according to the client’ needs. I support clients from the beginning to the end of their journey, helping them facing tough moments and explaining as much as possible about their condition so that they can understand it, manage it and achieve their target. I follow an evidence based practice approach and keep myself constantly updated about the last scientific researches that can help to improve my client’s condition.
I gained experience in the health field by working as a Physiotherapy Assistant at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, where I was involved in the rehabilitation of trauma inpatients and outpatients. I also worked in sport settings as Pitch Side First Aider and Sport Therapist for the University of Nottingham, the Table Tennis England Team and the Singapore Touch Rugby National Team.
Whether you need to relieve pain or discomfort, recover from an injury or simply want to improve the quality of your life, please get in touch and I will explain how I can help you.

From the Lotus Sutra, one of the most influential and venerated Buddhist Mahayana sutras:
“A waterfall called Ryumon (Dragon Gate) exists in China. Its waters plunge a hundred feet, swifter than an arrow shot by a strong warrior. It is said that a great many carp gather in the basin below, hoping to climb the falls, and that any that succeeds will turn into a dragon. Not a single carp, however, out of a hundred, a thousand, or even ten thousand, can climb the falls, not even after ten or twenty years. Some are swept away by the strong currents, some fall prey to eagles, hawks, kites, and owls, and others are netted, scooped up, or even shot with arrows by fishermen who line both banks of the falls ten chō long. Such is the difficulty a carp faces in becoming a dragon."
The Chinese legend tells of a large school of fish—shining like polished jewels—that made the long and difficult journey upstream against the current of the mighty Yellow River.
When they reached an imposing waterfall many of them resigned to simply return to the flow and went back the way they came. Some of the fish, however, were unfazed and attempted to leap up the cascading water to make it to the top.
One version of the legend says that some of the local deities, or demons, were drawn to the splashing. Seeing the determined efforts of the koi fish, and out of spite, cruelly made the waterfall even higher. It didn’t have the desired effect, though—and unperturbed—the koi redoubled its efforts to get to the top.
For 100 years the koi toiled against the odds, until finally a single koi crested the top of the waterfall to make it into the river above.
The gods who witnessed this colossal achievement rewarded the courageous fish for its perseverance by transforming the koi into a golden dragon. This dragon fish now traverses the skies above the river, constantly seeking pearls of wisdom.
As a result, the waterfall became known as the Dragon Gate and any koi that summons the strength, courage and determination to swim against the tide and through the gates is bestowed the same honor as the original fish that overcame adversity.
The Japanese think that the legend embodies the principles of perseverance, strength and continued courage, reminding us to never give up, no matter the odds.
