About Us

Lottie

Lottie has always had a passion for sports and the importance of working towards peak performance.

She has competed to a high level in Squash and Hockey but generally loves anything active outdoors. She graduated from Queen Margaret’s University in 2013, within which she secured a student placement at Headley court, the defence military rehabilitation centre. After Headley Court her passion for active rehabilitation was lit. She initially worked for two years for a private Physiotherapy company which gave her a lot of experience in caseload management and put her through sports massage, osteopath and dry needling courses.

She then went off to gain experience in an elite performance gym in Vancouver, in which she was able to work with a wide variety of individuals involved in different disciplines and thus developing her skills in elite performance management. Lottie’s personal experiences as a national athlete and her knowledge of posture, sport injuries, motor vehicle accidents, biomechanics, functional movement and chronic pain help her to develop tailored treatments and effective strength rehabilitation programs. She focuses on strength, muscle activation and function, joint mobility, patient education and goals as her core foundations.

Daisy

Daisy began her career in the health and fitness industry in 2018, she settled on a degree in Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation and is now qualified and practicing Sports Therapist. 

As a keen runner and climber she felt there was a gap in the industry for well supported, individualised rehabilitation techniques following injury, something she had experienced first hand herself on numerous occasions! 

With a passion for injury prevention, particularly through encouraging her clients to be strong, not just for activities but daily life Daisy has incorporated many strength and conditioning techniques into her practice and seeing very successful results. 

Whether treating clients in the clinic or working with them in the gym, Daisy never uses a ‘one sizes fits all’ approach to recovering from injuries or getting stronger and really enjoys working 1-1 with clients to understand and build an approach that works best for their lifestyle, with the hope of making them bulletproof! 

Daisy’s practice is regularly updated and in line with modern research and CPD courses, and she hopes to be able to focus on women’s health and injury proofing for sport, learning more about this area in the future.

When not in the clinic or the gym, Daisy can often be found running, cycling, climbing or adventuring with her daughter Lily (generally trying to keep up!).
