I have had around five years of discomfort in both knees, which has became progressively worse. It ultimately stopped me doing all the things I love most (running, cycling, climbing, dancing, skiing),but of more concern to me, it was impacting on my work. I am an Antarctic meteorologist and I work in Antarctica for six months of the year, so it is essential that I remain active and strong. I tried physiotherapy and acupuncture with no success and finally had a consultation with a knee surgeon.
I qualified and first worked in the Midlands area, before settling in Cambridgeshire in 1994. Having worked in local NHS hospitals and clinics, I have built up a knowledge and aptitude for treating"musculoskeletal" problems, realising quite early in my career, that this was the area I wanted to specialise in.
Our philosophy is simple. Cut through all the nonsense and get to the root of the problem. We don't follow the 'traditional' blueprint of most Physiotherapy Clinics. We won't confuse you with longexplanations, we are not into just treating your symptoms (that won't get you anywhere), we won't give you generic exercise programmes and we will never ever say 'see how you get on and call me if it gets any worse'.

I have been to see Raffaella at Fit For Sport a number of times over the past few months, with both lower back pain and severe neck trauma. I was totally incapacitated with the latter, but saw amarked improvement after only one or two massage sessions. Her skills and knowledge base are excellent, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone in need of massage therapy.
