Joy qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1993 from the University of Teesside. Before co-founding Body 2 Fit she worked as a Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist & Manager within the NHS where she developed a reputation as being an expert clinician in the diagnosis, treatment and management of shoulder and spinal pathologies. She has lectured to physiotherapists & medical colleagues and has also contributed to several published research papers.

She completed a Masters Degree in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy, is a member of the highly regarded Manipulative Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, a member of the McKenzie Institute of Physiotherapists and also the British Elbow and Shoulder Society. Her interest in analysis of movement patterns and dysfunctions and the development of specific rehabilitative exercise programs led her to train as a Pilates Instructor with the internationally recognised Pilates Foundation. Joy is the only Pilates Foundation teacher in North East England who has trained in both matwork and studio (equipment) and one of only a few practitioners in the country who can combine her skills and knowledge as a Physiotherapist and Pilates teacher resulting in creating a unique approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of movement dysfunction.

Joy is also a Level III CORE work practitioner - a unique soft tissue approach which addresses the body’s connective tissue system. She has undergone specific training in relation to the application of similar techniques to those who have undergone surgical intervention following breast cancer. Joy is one of a few practitioners in the UK who is able to offer a Pilates programme designed to meet the specialist needs of breast cancer sufferers.

She is also a qualified Ballroom and Latin American Dance Instructor. It was Joy’s love of dance and fitness that originally prompted her to train as a physiotherapist. She promotes dance as a way of exercising whilst having fun.

A UK-wide CSP survey showed that 32% of people who have desk based work experience physical pain during working hours at least once a week. A further 65% reported back pain as the most common problem. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as back pain are one of the biggest causes of sickness absence on any given day and are estimated to cost society and employers around £7.4 billion a year!

With more and more of us having the option to work from home it's imperative to have the correct seating arrangement to reduce the risk of back pain and other associated aches and pains.

What is CORE bodywork?

CORE bodywork focuses on the release of layers of fascia throughout the body. The fascia is the body's connecting web of tissue that controls our overall alignment. We often lose our optimal alignment from events of both physical and emotional trauma. Over time this can lead to discomfort, reduce mobility and effect physical performance. This is a unique form of treatment that gives you a greater sense of all over freedom, physically and emotionally. It will dramatically improve posture and movement along with an enhanced understanding of how the body operates. Body 2 Fit are delighted to be one of the first clinics in the UK to be able to offer CORE work.
