Fizzy Lemon Physiotherapy has been developed to help facilitate the recovery and reduce injuries of performers within the circus industry. Following conversations with fellow artists during classes and workshops, it became apparent that some of the professionals that they had sought advice from were unable recognise the demands required to train within this specific environment.
We at Fizzy Lemon Physiotherapy were able to recognise that having an understanding of these demands and applying this to circus artist’s rehabilitation could enhance their recovery and ability to participate within their desired field.
This is where Fizzy Lemon Physiotherapy was born.
Chartered Physiotherapist – graduated from Coventry Univeristy with a BSc (Hons) in 2015. Currently working within the NHS as a rotational physiotheraist, having gained experience in a variety of settings including: musculoskeletal, trauma and orthopaedics, critical care, neurology and neurological rehabilitation.
Since graduating, I have also volunteered at the 2016 and 2017 at the Virgin Money London Marathon, providing immediate medical attention to participants as they crossed the finish line.
My interest for circus developed in 2016 when I took my first aerial hoop and pole class. Since then, this interest has matured into a passion (some might say addiction), for pole, aerial silks and contortion.
I regularly attend classes and workshops to continually enhance my skills and advancemy knowledge within this ever expanding area. My favourites include (to name a few):
- Contortion classes with Jade Marissa Flash, Imogen Gunter, Hannah Finn and Elli Cooper
- Pole with Karen Gaunt, Crystal Gibson, Heidi Hildersley
- Acro/gymnastics and contortion with Yvette DuSol
- Hand Balancing with Felipe Momento and Gabby Parker
- Aerial Hoop with Ellie Bradsell
- Aerial Silks with Karen Grant
- Hula hoop flow with Elli Cooper
