Amanda qualified in 1991 as a Physiotherapist from Kings College London. She worked largely in the NHS gaining valuable experience in the fields of sports therapy, neurology, outpatients, respiratory and orthopaedics. Having left the NHS for a three year spell to work at the The Oaks Hospital Colchester, where she gained valuable experience in the private sector and elective pre and post-operative orthopaedic surgery, she returned to the NHS, this time in the community setting, facilitating discharge packages and patient transition to their home environment. From here she worked in a purpose built rehab hospital, again reinforcing her skills in patient rehabilitation.
Amanda will always have a keen interest in the field of sports injuries, having reached National levels as a junior in the field of sprint hurdling.
She joined the Practice nine years ago after completing her Training in the Bowen Technique, enabling patients to benefit from this distinctive, effective therapy.
Working privately rewards huge satisfaction to her, enabling her the luxury to spend time both listening to and treating her clients to maximise their recovery.
