Quick Fire Questions – Get to know our therapists!

  1. Where is the best place you ever travelled to?
    Best place I’ve ever travelled to is the Amazon Jungle in Colombia. I stayed there for a month with just the basics & I loved it as we had to catch our own food every day, no electricity neither TV nor internet and every day we had to survive around lots of different animals you don’t get to see very often!
  2. What are your sports?
    Love playing sports such as Tennis, Downhill Mountain biking and Skateboarding but my favourite sport is Snowboarding. I spent 10 consecutive winter seasons on snow training on Half Pipe & Slope-Style modalities.
  3. What made you choose to become a Sports Therapist?
    I sprained my ankle in the middle of the Winter season in Austria and Sports Physio there fixed me in 3 weeks and I was eternally grateful for his help so decided to stop winter seasons and came back to London to Study Sports Therapy at University. I haven’t looked back and I love looking after people!

Testimonials:

Achilles tendon injury Samia works magic. I came to her in significant pain from an injury to my achilles tendon. Over a period of 4 months, she treated me with a mixture of sports massage, acupuncture, exercises and gave me excellent and honest advice about walking, standing and the kind of exercise I could do. Its got me back to the point now when I can walk as far as I like and move without pain. She has given me a really wonderful gift - joy in movement once again. She is a really superb Sports Therapist.

Over the years I have been to a large number of physios, some good, some indifferent and sadly many poor. Samia sits on a pedestal as one of the best physios I have been to. Some physios, will tut, suck their teeth and tell you what you should have done and be doing and waste a whole load of time and energy about how I needed to stretch more. If I didn’t help myself, how could they help me, blah, blah, blah! Samia is different, she will ask what the problem is, what you are aiming to achieve and work out a plan of how that can be achieved. Having a family full of medics, I have always read up on the latest treatments for different ailments along with the different treatment strategies. When talking with Samia, she was always fully aware of these, knew them, had experience with them and advised on which she believed would be best, based on my circumstances. When injured 8 days before a half marathon,(hobbling), she fixed me, she gave me a very clear schedule of what was needed, where I needed to be at the end of each day and I completed the race in 1 hr 23 without any pain, pushing as hard as I could. If you are serious about your sport and want someone who really knows what they are doing and will cope with the reality of people working long hours who don’t necessarily do everything they should, go and see Samia!

I woke up on Thursday morning last week and had excruciating pain in my back, something I'm not used to at all. I had no idea what it was and during the day it got progressively worse so that the pain spread to my neck area. A massage from my partner didn't help and in desperation, I Googled 'physios in Chiswick' and discovered Samia's clinic. I got a late afternoon appointment and she was amazing. She thoroughly checked my health history and spent ages monitoring and manipulating my back. She knew exactly what the problem was and my treatment included acupuncture. I went home slightly sore from the treatment, as I would have expected, but felt so relieved that I'd seen an expert who could help. My recovery was miraculous as far as I'm concerned, the following day I completely forgot I'd even been in so much pain. I had a second treatment three days later and have come away with some useful exercises. I really can't recommend Samia and her lovely team enough.

I have worked with Samia and her team for around five years. She and her team have helped me with injuries to my back, knees and elbow. Their professional and caring approach has been invaluable to ensure I can continue playing sport and I would highly recommend Clinic4Sport. Thanks, Samia for all your ongoing help!

Hi Samia, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for coming over to see me in those first few days of lockdown. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. I can't even imagine what lockdown would have been like without that visit and treatment..... It took a week or so, but that visit definitely helped get my back on the right track and things have been fine. I have even been doing a bit of decorating! Thanks again Samia. You are a star.

Samia – Thanks for the treatment today. You gave me such a pummelling that this afternoon I went to sleep on the wooden floor of our shed for an hour. No cushions, nothing. Lovely!
Philip
Samia quickly diagnosed a very painful muscle spasm in my back and eased it effectively with massage, acupuncture, supportive strapping and prescriptive stretches. She was very informative and professional.
Antonia Sterck
Thanks to Samia for getting me back walking let alone being able to play on beautiful grass courts! This is not the first time that Samia has made it possible for me to compete and I really appreciate the work she does and advice I get in order to enable me to still compete for GB in my age group! Thank you Samia

Dear Samia, I’m please to inform you that I won the championship for Hartswood HC tournament and runner up for The Park Club championships! I wanted to inform you both results at once so I’m sorry that I couldn’t express my gratitude to you earlier! My shoulder is currently doing very well and last time I played against boys I could literally serve like before! You are an amazing physio!! I will see you again before my big match in Aug! Many many thank you and big big hugs
