“I started seeing Simon due to a finger injury a few years ago. He was very quick to diagnose what wrong and gave me a great rehab plan! Since then I have seen him for pretty much any niggle I have- finger, knee, you name it! It’s great because Simon understands how important climbing and moving is to me- being in the GB Climbing Team being able to train is pretty important! So all his rehab and recovery still involved some form of training so I could get back to full strength ASAP! Could not recommend highly enough!

Charlie was really friendly, helpful and reassuring, and the exercises she gave me have fully solved my back problem! Absolutely great.

– Claire

His unlimited psych for sport, exercise and rehab always spurred me on to complete all my exercises which was a key part of my recovery. All injured climbers should just book in with him now as you’ll be climbing hard again sooner if you do!

– Ponder Stibbons

Amazing session! Sarah answered loads of questions I had and helped me to integrate some exercises into my yoga practice so I have a solid way of moving forward and rehabilitating my body

– Imralis

I highly recommend Simon and the Rise team for both climbing and running related physio for either injury or performance reasons

– Alistair

I saw Sarah when my lower back went into painful spasm. Sarah was extremely empathetic, helpful and skilled. I left feeling very reassured and after just one day of prescribed exercises my back is already improving!

The transformation I’ve experienced seeing both Simon for an initial physiotherapy consultation, and Stefani for 1:1 Pilates sessions over the course of several months has been incredible.
