“As any enthusiastic athlete I have suffered many injuries myself over my 20-year career. I believe that having my own struggles with my body, I have been able to grow as a therapist. I am able to relate to many different types of pain, even if the clients have trouble describing it, and I can work with a large range of people and personalities to get the best out of everyone.”

Shae has a strong interest in neck and shoulder complaints for swimmers, athletes, fitness instructors, runners, footballers, dancers and cyclists. She also enjoys caring for postural issues, injury management and general wellbeing.
