My areas of interest lie in preventative medicine (prehab),
spine- related injury/pain and running-related injuries
(special focus on biomechanics, forces and loading during
running). This by no means will exclude any injury/ condition
that can benefit from physical rehabilitation.
My sporting, academic and clinical experience informs
my rehabilitation approach ( > 10 yrs).
In a clinical setting, my rehabilitation plan is determined
by a collection of both objective and subjective information
in the initial assessment (ViMove wearable technology
is used for running analysis).
My approach is that "no injury/ pain syndrome is
insignificant or too complicated. If there is a problem
linked to your musculoskeletal system, there has to be
a solution. It may just mean moving away from the usual
approach and looking at it from a different angle"

At Beauty Within, we don’t believe in “standards

should look like. Instead, we understand that true beauty
lies within the uniqueness of each of us; that we all
radiate from within; that perfection, like ideals and
standards, are subjective. This philosophy forms the heart
of everything we do and is the reason why we don’t
subscribe to a one-size-fits-all treatment policy. Rather,
we tailor our range of beauty, health and wellness treatments
to each client, helping enhance their individual sparkle
and magnificence. It’s what our clients, who have
been coming to us for more than two decades, love about
us the most!

Have you noticed that life doesn't always go according
Sometimes it can be the big things that get us down-
the breakdown of a relationship, losing a loved one, the
loss of a job or someone you love falling sick.
Or sometimes the things we desperately want in our life
- that great partner, children, that amazing job - don't
come to us in the way we'd hoped they would.
Other times we might experience depression or anxiety,
and we might try to fix them by cutting off from the things
that we value, thereby making us even more sad or worried.
And many times we humans just get stuck- we lack motivation
or purpose... we're low on confidence..we live on auto
pilot and feel that life isn't as vital or as meaningful
as we imagine it could be.
Asking for help doesn't come naturally for many of us.

Unsightly body hair can be very upsetting and embarrassing
for both men and women. Laser hair removal is considered
one of the most effective treatments available today.
At Kingspark Sports Medicine Centre we only provide our
clients with the best. We therefore have chosen to utilise
the three wavelength diode laser, ensuring safe and comfortable
hair removal. It is suitable for all skin types, gives
relatively fast results and no downtime after the procedure.
The treatment is virtually painless and can last from
a few minutes up to an hour depending on the area being
treated. Laser is only effective on hair during the early
growth cycle. Therefore, several treatments spaced 4 to
6 weeks apart may be required to attain effective results.
The number of treatments required is dependent on a person’s
hair color, coarseness of hair and hormones.

I am a Registered Dietitian with a passion for healthy
eating and lifestyle. I have a BSC Medical Honours Degree
in Nutrition & Dietetics from The University Of Cape
Town, and completed my undergraduate degree majoring in
Human Kinetics & Ergonomics (HKE) and Psychology at
Rhodes University. I also have a Diploma in Sports Nutrition
through The International Olympic Committee. My primary
interests are in general healthy eating, sports nutrition,
disordered eating and DNA nutrition.
My Undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics stimulated my
interest in sports nutrition and the importance of nutrition
for exercise and performance. After finishing my dietetics
degree I completed the International Olympic Committee
(IOC) Diploma in Sports Nutrition to specialise in the
sports nutrition field. I am passionate about exercise
and fitness and practice what I preach with regards to
training and nutrition. I am a qualified spinning and
kettlebel instructor and have completed a short course
on exercise prescription in chronic diseases and special
populations through Witwatersrand University.
I see food as nourishing and something that should be
enjoyed not feared. I don’t see ‘healthy’
as being low calorie, but being the most nutritious option.
I follow the intuitive eating principles and give focus
to foods that make us feel good and that are enjoyed.
I followed up my interest in eating disorders by doing
further short courses on emotional eating, binge eating
& bulimia nervosa.
There is nothing more personalised than your specific
genetic make up. There are now tests available where we
can look at your specific DNA to predict your risk of
developing chronic diseases. We can then advise on specific
lifestyle and dietary interventions to help to reduce
your risk of developing these diseases. I am currently
enrolled in the Manuka course in Nutrigenomics.
