Elaine

Clinic Director and Owner

Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor

I qualified in 1998 from Northumbria university and went on to work in NHS regional and national centres of excellence up to the level of an extended scope practitioner in musculoskeletal health. I have worked in London and elite sporting private clinics as well as managing a physio department at a private hospital for a national chain of private hospitals. I bring a lot of varied experience and dynamic care into my practice to ensure you receive the highest standards and most effective treatment in your journey to recovery but with the added 21st century technology and innovations to ensure I deliver a unique virtual service.

Lorien

NLP and Relaxation Therapist

In spite of great leaps in opening up dialogue regarding mental health many people are still not comfortable to share their day to day challenges which is why I provide people with simple tools and techniques that they can apply in their lives without drawing any attention they are not inviting. Breathing techniques, you can perform discreetly anywhere, NLP tools which could be used in the middle of a stressful meeting without raising an eyebrow, and relaxation therapies to help start and end their day the best way possible. I believe these tools are a real game changer for all people to promote their wellbeing at this tumultuous time. I am currently having great success helping people within the professional sector deal with feelings of stress, anxiety and frustration which are impacting their professional and personal lives.

My therapies are not traditional counselling or talking therapies and do not require people to open up and talk about anything they are not ready to. What I do is help create headspace for people and a real sense of inner calm so that they can start to explore the solutions that are really meaningful for them.

 

Debbie Ross McKenzie

Yoga Instructor

Ever since I can remember, I’d always wanted to be a professional Physiologist when I grew up. I’ve always found many subjects intriguing and interesting, motivating me to investigate and research as many sources of information as I could get my hands on. Looking back, it’s that passion and commitment to exploration and discovery that has contributed to my research and publication success. Get in touch if you’d like to learn more about my career and what I’m working on now.

Kataneh

Pilates & Ballet Instructor

Pilates has become Kataneh's passion, mainly due to the help it gave her to manage an old back injury caused by her long term ballet training, extremely well. Due to her personal successful Pilates experience in practicing Pilates herself, she decided to specialise in a number of different types Pilates practices for musculoskeletal conditions such as, neck, shoulders injury, pelvis and lower back rehabilitation. Kataneh is also a certified Pilates instructor to help people whom have or have had Breast Cancer, Spinal Surgery or suffering from Neuro damage. She finally learned how to use Pilates for specific sports activities to help runners and cyclists perform their sports better.


Kataneh uses her long term teaching experience to facilitate the Pilates movements for each individual's ability and needs. This helps them to perform the movements easily and correctly. Once you start doing Pilates with Kataneh, you will see what great care she administers to each individual, because she believes Pilates isn't just a job for her, Pilates is a function of growth toward the achievements of meaningful goals of each individual.
