Sports Therapy. Nutrition. Breathwork
I treat people with everyday niggles such as low back pain and sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, repetitive strain injuries and plantar fasciitis. I also treat sports injuries including ITB Syndrome, Piriformis syndrome, shinsplints, runners knee and muscle and tendon strains.
I like to look at treatment in an holistic way, understanding that quite often, where the pain is, the problem is not. My treatment is body centred in that whilst I treat the pain I am also looking for the cause, and ways to prevent the pain or injury from returning. This is why my therapy involves a full postural assessment and advice on exercise therapy, looking at postural compensations, range of movement, strength and mobility, as well as understanding any nutritional and any other health issues.

I have a real interest in the human body, its mechanics and our bodies ability to repair itself. My therapy isn’t just for athletes or people who play sport, I treat people with everyday niggles such as lower back pain, wrist pain, neck and shoulder pain and plantar fasciitis, whilst also treating sports injuries including shinsplints, runners knee and muscle and tendon strains. My treatment is body centred in that whilst I treat the pain I am also looking for the cause, and ways to prevent the pain or injury from returning. This is why my therapy involves a full postural assessment and advice on exercise therapy as well as treatment.
I cannot recommend Helen highly enough – I needed treatment to relieve pain and stiffness in my leg and lower back which was affecting my posture and Helen was able to identify the areas of tightness and help release them.
Helen is professional and friendly and you instantly feel safe in her hands.
After just one consultation with Helen and then her working on my arm and wrist I have since felt no pain at all, which is fantastic.
Thank you so much Helen”
I’ve been treated by Helen on several occasions and she is extremely capable & professional. She has treated cycling issues, spotted and advised/helped a long-standing shoulder issue and has also made me appreciate the value of regular sports massage
