Meet the team - Becca
Welcome to our new blog series, where you can get to know all our team members - their specialties, their interests and who they really are. We are starting off the series with Becca.
Name : Rebecca van Klinken - but you can call me Becca!
What do are you? Physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates Instructor
What year did you qualify? 2001 from Birmingham University
What is your favourite body part to work with and why?
I love legs - anything from the hips down to the foot excites me! Mainly because there is so much to work with - from releasing tight muscles to re-educating client's on how to move correctly to finding the right footwear. The results from working with a client who has a lower limb problem are always so rewarding as you inevitably improve the way they walk/run/perform on a day to day basis. The improvement is always so obvious to the client which makes it really rewarding.
What is your favourite bit of advice for your clients?
Buy a foam roller. They are the best bit of equipment ever! Whether someone is an office worker or a runner, a foam roller is something I think we all need to have and use daily to help keep our bodies happy and flexible.
What do you get up to in your free time when you are not at Onebody?
If I am not busy with my two children, I am working for a friend's Charity in West London which runs physio led exercise classes for people who have had a stroke.
When are you at Onebody? I am working at Onebody Chiswick on Mondays and Thursdays.
