Gemma qualified with a BSc(Hons) degree in 1997 at Leeds, she then worked as a senior Physiotherapist specialising in Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic problems, within the NHS and private settings. Her ultimate dream, however, was always to open a ‘one stop shop’ for Physiotherapy and rehabilitation where clients could be taken from initial injury to full function and to return to their sport or chosen activity.
Gemma founded GK Physio and Pilates in 2011, and after working out of various rooms and studios around Ilkley, she found a lovely converted stable in the centre of Ilkley which had the added benefit of parking and ground floor access for wheelchairs.
Gemma’s speciality is the treatment of all types of joint and muscle problems, such as arthritis, sprains/strains, neck and back pain and post operative rehabilitation. She uses an evidence based hands-on approach, complimented by specific exercises and clinical Pilates rehabiltation methods to address the very root of the cause.
Gemma became a qualified Pilates instructor 6 years ago with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) and began teaching classes. She now provides classes throughout the week in the new studio, catering for the complete beginner to the established sports person wishing to improve their overall strength and stamina in a controlled and safe way.
