Clinical Biography

Emma is a registered physiotherapist and certified yoga teacher. She completed her first BSc at Sussex University in Human Sciences in 2005, and a second in Physiotherapy at the University of Ferrara, Italy, in 2012 with a focus on neurological physiotherapy. She completed her NHS rotations in hospitals in London and Somerset, treating patients in stroke and community rehabilitation, orthopaedics, women’s health, and musculoskeletal physiotherapy. She also lived in India for two years where she worked in private practice as well as in a school for children with special needs.

Side by side her academic and clinical training, she has cultivated an interest in a holistic approach to addressing people’s physical and stress-related issues. In 2015 she trained in Douglas Heel’s Be Activated system, learning to assess muscle strength and flexibility to identify patterns and restore balance to the whole body, by facilitating muscles using specific techniques and pressure points.

In 2017 she was certified as a Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance International), in a 300hr one to one course, at Vinieyoga Healing Centre in Chennai, in the Krishnamacharya tradition, focusing how the coordination of breath and movement and on adapting yoga practice to different groups and to individual needs.

With a strong clinical background, and a holistic approach to the human body Emma is committed to help achieve the best results with her patients.

Personal Statement

My mission is to help people out of pain and into feeling at their best. In my experience studying and working in the UK, Italy and India, I have learned to appreciate the importance of offering a variety of tools to assist each individual person.

Particularly through the Be Activated technique I have learned to look at each person as a whole, identifying their patterns of compensation and and restoring an ideal, natural way of moving to include the natural breath. This helps recovery from aches and injuries, as well as from stress related and chronic issues, and ensures you are functioning well in your daily life with full energy or performing at your best in your sport.

Through my yoga practice and teacher training I have learned how yogic movements or asanas can benefit everyone, no matter your age, size and shape and no matter how flexible you feel you are. Using the breath and listening to our bodies, yoga protects us from injury and makes us feel strong and focused. Yoga can also be integrated in your rehabilitation process depending on your goals and interests.
