Jessica opened Henley Podiatry and Health Therapies in 2018 following developing practices in London both in private practice and the NHS for over 10 years..
Jessica studied Bsc (Hons) Podiatry at the University of Huddersfield in 2010 after gaining an interest in the lower limb following a series of injuries whilst training as a dancer. She has continued to develop her knowledge of podiatry and human health by regularly participating in various courses.
Jessica has a varied interest in podiatric issues ranging from paediatric care and biomechanical issues to nail surgery and wound care. Jessica also tutors at The SMAE Institute for Foot Heath Professionals.
During her dance training Jessica regularly participated in pilates and quickly saw the benefits when recovering from injury. She therefore trained with APPI (matwork) and Polestar Pilates (comprehensive - includes matwork and all equipment) to bring pilates to her clients as a form of exercise and rehabilitation.
Jessica regularly incorporates pilates into injury rehab and as a method to improve balance, stability and bone strength (suitable for all ages).
Jessica is available at our Hart Street Clinic Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays and alternate Saturdays.
