Qualifications: CSP associate practitioner, BSc Sports Rehabilitation, Polestar Pilates comprehensive rehabilitation, Pre and post pregnancy certified. Pink ribbon post-operative rehabilitation.
Hi, my name is Roxy and I am the clinic manager at Chelsea. I originally qualified with a BSc in Sports Rehabilitation from St Marys University and am BASRAT registered.
Prior to my degree, I danced for 16 years and worked as a personal trainer helping clients achieve their health and wellbeing goals. This experience helped me to understand first-hand the hard work, training and dedication it takes to prepare for competitions, whether it is an athlete training for a major event or an office worker training for their first race. It also showed me how strong you need to be but also how much stability and flexibility is needed. As a result I was drawn to further my knowledge with Polestar Pilates Comprehensive training.
I saw how linking manual therapy and exercise together promoted responsibility and awareness in aiding the treatment of muscular pain and dysfunction. This realisation was furthered when I worked within elite sports teams, working with the New Zealand All Blacks for the Rugby World Cup 2015, and the English Institute of Sport since 2016, treating a variety of professional athletes such as English squash, triathletes and runners.
Alongside my sports massage and rehabilitation roles, I work in the Chelsea studio as a Clinical Pilates instructor and am also part of Complete Pilates on demand programme. Here, I focus on mat and equipment Pilates, to enhance body awareness and progress rehabilitation.
Understanding the body’s anatomy, movement imbalances and biomechanics, gives me the drive to help my clients through their journey back to a pain free and functional life.
When I am not in the studio, you will find me playing with my gorgeous dog, having quality time with my family, nieces and nephew and finding a new local walking spot.
