Training with Emma does exactly what it says on the tin. She has worked with me to improve my strength and flexibility, addressing the issues and bad habits that come with over 30 years of rowing and long distance running. She researches new techniques and has helped me get to the root cause of imbalances and long standing injuries. She is very observant and has a good balanced approach of support and challenge. Thanks Emma, I look forward to continuing to work with you.
I have known and been treated by Emma for over 5 years, initially by way of Sports Massaging. During that time she also initially introduced me to the use of Pilates and other exercises I can perform at home which are appropriate to my age(old!). I have managed to maintain and improve my joint flexibility through further treatments all of which she provides with good in depth knowledge and professionalism. Her ability to understand and develop all these treatments have really impressed me during these 5 years and I am certain all future clients will be in safe and expert hands. She has certainly prolonged my active life – I only wish I had been able to start these treatments at an earlier age,
I contacted Emma last December with an injury to my back. The injury was affecting my day to day life, my work as a photographer and I was struggling to play tennis. I knew I had to do something to strengthen my body but also prevent further injury. I had been to Emma in the past for sports massage and knew she has a depth of knowledge and understanding of how the body works and functions. Emma recommended a 1:1 plan focusing on Mobility & strength exercises along with treatments and a homework plan to do during the week.
12 months on and I can honestly say it was the best decision. I have a better understanding of my body and more awareness of movement patterns that were originally causing me problems.
My body feels stronger than ever. I am back playing competitive tennis. I have also taken up running, something I would not have been able to do 12 months ago. I cannot thank Emma enough. The hard work, commitment and attention to detail Emma puts into each session never goes unnoticed. I know if I’m stuck on a particular exercise that Emma is always at the end of the phone/email to answer any questions or queries I’m having. I am looking forwards to continuing my programme and maintaining the work we have done.
