"Before I had the kids, I was a keen skier, but two C sections put me out of action for a while. I also had unstable ankles and hypermobility, and used to twist my ankle badly at least once a week whilst just walking.
I really wanted to get back into skiing, so I went to see James who did some work on my body and feet over a handful of sessions. The first year back skiing after children, I was more stable and my turns have improved. And I’ve stopped twisting my ankle all the time!
We do maintenance sessions every now and then and the second year of skiing was even better than before I had children. My ankle and hip joints are more stable and I’ve transitioned back to exercise and challenging yoga in a safe way and feel stronger. I continue to see James for top up sessions and I’m looking forward to the skiing season this year."

[Update: May 2021. Sarah cannot remember the last time that she twisted her ankle. I've not worked on it for over 18 months.]
