Emma took over The Body Clinic several years ago and now treats premiership footballers and Olympians alike. On setting up the clinic Emma had a vision of building a team of physiotherapists around her who share her belief that every client who comes to the clinic has the right to the same level of service that any world-class athlete would receive.
