Training and Background
Isy originally graduated from the largest remedial therapy school in Perth, Australia. As a seasoned club 70.3 triathlete, her passion came from performing a simple reach test, followed by a rotator cuff treatment to remove muscle tightness and increase ROM…. over the next 6 weeks of therapy her swim times increased dramatically. This personal experience drove her to want to learn and understand more about the human anatomy and ultimately aid athletes with specific muscle challenges and the general public with common aches and pains.
Isy has direct experience with a wide range of athletes from different disciplines and backgrounds. She has treated clients from recreational triathlete to IRONMAN, amateur to PRO golfers, national body builders and MMA fighters in Australia, cyclists in the Canaries and most memorably the English paraplegic badminton team.
In Andalucia Isy locally supports various golf societies and academies and several athletic clubs in Mijas.
Isy also works closely with the European Ladies Tour (please see here). Are you a professional golfer?
