Sports Injuries & Massage
Having graduated in 2006 from Oxford Brookes University with a 1st class honours degree in Physiotherapy, Lauren began her career at Heatherwood and Wexham Park hospitals. She has since worked as a Senior Physiotherapist within the NHS, and also within the private sector for over 16 years.
Possessing a wide range of clinical skills, Lauren is trained in acupuncture and has also trained with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute since 2007, where she achieved her matwork instructors qualification.
Lauren is passionate about treating a variety of conditions, including those of upper and lower limbs as well as spinal injuries. She is particularly interested in sports injuries and post-operative rehabilitation as well as Women’s health whereby she is trained through the POGP in treating female urinary incontinence as well as ante-and pre-natal. Over and above this, she is committed to her patients overall health and wellbeing, striving to improve her their quality of life through encouraging healthy lifestyle choices. This is strengthened through her study in Health Coaching with the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
Lauren uses many treatment techniques to ensure optimal benefit for all her patients. Such treatments include acupuncture, soft tissue work, joint manual therapy, taping, electrotherapy, strength and conditioning training. Part of every consultation with Lauren involves the patient being taught about his or her condition, informed about its root cause and empowered to manage it as well as possible.
Keeping fit is very important to Lauren. She has swum competitively in the past and played lacrosse for Kent. She goes to the gym regularly, swims, cycles and of course practices what she preaches with regular Pilates and Yoga.

” Thank you Lauren!! amazingly skilled Physiotherapist who helped me recover fast! Before visiting Lauren at Evolve South Kensington, I suffered from pain with every step due to hip and knee injuries. Lauren helped me regain my strength and recover fast. She was attentive and extremely helpful in tethering a recovery plan around my aspirations to get back to exercise as soon as was possible. Greatly recommended!”
