Specialises in

I have been working in the field of oncology since 2011 and have a particular interest in using exercise therapy and other physiotherapy technique to treat the consequences of cancer treatments. These side effects include fatigue, poor sleep, decreased exercise tolerance and general deconditioning.

I am also interested in the rehabilitation of patients flowing reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. I am a trained lymphoedema practitioner and practise Manual lymphatic drainage.

I am also a trained acupuncturist and Pilates teacher and find both of this technique extremely useful in the treatment of the above.

I have vast experience in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and have a particular interest in the rehabilitation of shoulder injuries and post spinal surgery.
