More About Tess

Tess returned to Edinburgh in 2007 and commenced a masters in Sports Physiotherapy. Her thesis analysed the effect that a golf specific warm up would have on drive distance and swing speed.

Working as part of a team at the sports injury clinic at Edinburgh University, Tess was able to gain clinical knowledge and experience with a variety of different sporting athletes. This encompassed working with the Men’s Scottish Hockey team, British Orienteers and high performance student athletes .

In 2010 Tess set up Pilates Plus Physiotherapy with Laura, integrating their physiotherapy knowledge with Pilates. Tess believes physiotherapy and Pilates complement each other as both use physical approaches to promote, maintain and rehabilitate while taking into account varying health and fitness levels.
