Anna Watson

Senior Physiotherapist

Anna qualified from University of Manchester, School of Physiotherapy in 2001.

After gaining extensive experience in the NHS as a senior musculoskeletal physiotherapist, she moved into the private sector whilst living abroad in the Middle East.

She particularly enjoys treating patients with spinal conditions, and has an interest in chronic pain and its management approaches. With this in mind she finds the use of acupuncture helpful in her rehabilitation of patients, incorporating a holistic whole body approach to her treatments.

 

Her specialist interest is in womens health, from pregnancy to menopause, and its effect on the musculoskeletal system. She has undertaken specific acupuncture training for womens health conditions and finds great satisfaction in helping those in pregnancy seeing significant improvement in their symptoms through acupuncture.

 

In her spare time, she enjoys socialising, walking and biking in the Surrey Hills, with her family.

Evie is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Evie represented her county at cricket from a young age. Over the years she was unfortunate and sustained a number of injuries. This brought her in contact with a number of Physiotherapists who inspired her to pursue a career in Physiotherapy.

"I believe Physiotherapy can help rehab clients to be able to do so much more than  basic daily movements without symptoms. At Head2Toe there is an expectation from patients and physiotherapists that we aim to rehab clients in order to allow them to successfully return to their sports, hobbies or normal life".

To achieve this, my treatment options include manual therapy in addition to exercise prescription and of course advice on manging the condition for the short, medium and long term"!

Anna is a fully qualified and insured clinical and sports massage therapist and has been practicing for about 15 years. She has worked with a wide range of people from Olympic athletes, swimmers competing at a national level, runners hoping to improve their performance and overcome long standing 'niggles', marathon runners in preparation for and following events, manual labourers, musicians, office workers who have developed poor posture, people with chronic back, shoulder and neck injuries, mums who are in pain as they will do anything to keep their child in that awkward position if it means they sleep, and mums-to-be as they prepare for the arrival of their little one! Having qualified as a ScarWork Therapist, Anna also spends a lot of time working with people who have scars, big or small. The impact of scarring on the body, no matter how small, can be significant, and often occurs at sites away from the scar, so the scar’s significance may not be immediately apparent to the patient. Anna takes a holistic approach to all treatments, looking at the body as a whole.

 

As a scientist in a former life, Anna likes to bring in her research knowledge to her work, staying up-to-date with techniques and research. As part of her Level 6 qualification, she carried out a research project, investigating the effects of massage on urinary incontinence in postnatal women; her project showed significant positive results. Anna has a particular interest in helping women recover from pregnancy and birth and works with women on a 1-2-1 or group basis to help them regain
