I'm Gemma the owner of Unique Body Clinic.

I opened the doors to the clinic in May 2009 and have now been in the fitness industry

for over 13 years. I started as a Studio Instructor/Personal Trainer and

followed it with Sports Massage a few years later, in

2008.  I initially intended to add the Sports massage service as part of 

Personal Training packages, to provide an all round service to clients. 

 However, once I started the Sports Therapy course it was an instant love

for me,  and fast became my full time vocation -  I have not looked back

since .


With 13 years now in clinic,  I  have treated a wide variety of ailments and

injuries, still I feel I am still always learning which is exactly what I love..

I can implement my background in  Personal Training, as well as my own 

training experience as it  allows me to provide useful aftercare advice in

order to rehabilitate following injury. I am fortunate to work with a very large variety of people - Athletes, Stage Competitors, Sports Teams to office workers and people with more manual occupations.

I am currently in the 4th year of 5 year Master Degree in Osteopathy at the University College of Osteopathy, so I will bring this knowledge to every treatment.
