“Client to Coach. Prior to seeing Jo I was struggling with recurrent hip, knee and Achilles injuries, which I had almost accepted as the nature of the sport (mountain running/cross country skiing) I was participating in. When Jo undertook the screens she was spot on with the cause of the injury and the Normalise process enabled her to identify my problems. It only took six weeks before I was able to feel progress, but several months to follow the stabilise and functionalise process, which enabled me to start the following competitive season pain free. Since then I have had a number of top ten finishes making the top three in the over 40’s in major fell running races in Wales. I was so impressed with the outcome, I enrolled for the Diploma course the following year. The course was hard work but the case studies and the assignment have helped …

Kat & Penny

“PARs Defect (fracture of spine) 2006 was a summer of playing lots of tennis tournaments, many matches back-to-back. Kat’s serve was poor as her tennis coach had radically changed it but left suddenly to work abroad leaving her without the finished product. He kept promising to return, but never did. So we kept waiting for the next instalment of her serve that never arrived. Consequently Kat’s back started aching. It first started during a tournament in the September, so we rested it, but it kept recurring.Eventually we heeded the advice of her new tennis coach and went to see a tennis-specialist physio. She diagnosed it was Kat’s quadratus lumborum and Kat needed to do some stretching. So Kat did her stretches and we went religiously to see (and pay) the physio – taking Kat out of school to accommodate the physio’s part-time work hours.The back still kept playing up, sometimes …

“Lumbopelvic Girdle Pain (PGP/SPD).  On and off I had been having problems with my lower back and hips for years. I would get lower back pain and aching legs if I stood or sat for a longer than half an hour at a time. In March 2008 when returning from holiday I had a problem with my right shoulder that resulting in me being unable to sleep on my right side without suffering pain or loosing the feeling in my arm. I decided to visit the chiropractor to sort out my arm problem and whilst there I mentioned the problem that I had been having with my lower back and hips.  X-rays revealed that my hip pain was due to a pregnancy condition called SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction). This is where the pelvis moves too much during pregnancy causing the bones to grind together.My youngest daughter is now 13 so …

“Post-Natal Pelvic Girdle Pain. It’s no exaggeration to say that meeting Jo Rainsley and embarking on her biomechanics programme has changed my life! When I first arrived at Jo’s house I had been suffering the pain and limited mobility that comes with SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction) for 3 long years. To be frank, my life had become a misery. I could barely walk more than a few feet; unable to drive my car I had lost all my independence and was in pain nearly every day. My partner had been forced to give up work to look after our baby and after 3 years we were beginning to think I was never going to make a full recovery. Numerous visits to both Chiropractors and Osteopaths offered only limited solutions and each month I would end up back where I had started.All the practitioners I saw said that Pilates was the …

Jo, I would like to thank you for showing me how to get my life back, after 10 years of steadily decreasing health following major surgery. Your acute perception of my bio mechanical issues, and your deep multi faceted knowledge of many other things including nutrition transformed my life. Thank you Jo, at last, someone who knows what they are doing!

“Exceeding Expectations. I wanted to check my health and see if there was anything to correct whilst I still could! So, I called BodyMOT Systems who put me in touch with Jo who then arranged a Lifestyle Analysis for me. I was very excited about having the test and what I was going to find out about me. I loved it! It was an incredible insight into my health and at my age how I could still improve it. I had my 6 week complimentary re-check, this is to see how much progress I was making and to keep me on track to PASS. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much had changed by implementing small changes. My expectations were certainly met and I really do feel it’s a value for money test. The Lifestyle changes that we discussed have all been changes that I can manage in …

“Life Changing. I wanted to make a fresh start in my life, and felt this was the best way to do it; I was a little apprehensive and not entirely sure what to expect. Throughout the tests I was just wondering if and what may be wrong!! Why I feel the way I do and why I could not get to where I so desperately wanted to be with my health and physique. Once the test was completed I had learnt so much and it gave me a kind of scare into starting to look after myself better. The test was amazing; it met ALL my steep expectations! When I first found out how much it was I was concerned, but after the 2 hour test, I felt it was well worth it, especially with the complimentary re-test’s and motivational emails and text’s! My life has definitely improved lots since …

“Supporting ‘my’ Clients.  When I first learned about the BodyMOT I was intrigued to find out more as I felt it was something that could be of value to my clients.  I was also curious to be MOT-ed myself!  As the owner of a small personal training studio I had been working very long hours, spending much time focusing on helping my clients to optimise their wellness and sadly letting my own suffer somewhat as a result.  Jo was brilliant – she explained everything that was required prior to the test and went through each individual analysis thoroughly during the test so that I understood what was going to happen and why.  It was all very interesting – some of it familiar and some of it new to me – and I especially liked the feeling that I was getting a good impression of what was really going on on …

“I made the appointment for a BodyMOT Lifestyle Analysis as I was interested to know if I could ‘tweak’ my lifestyle choices of diet and exercise. Prior to the Analysis I was probably rather arrogant in thinking that I had a reasonable mix of diet and exercise, I felt ‘a bit lacklustre’ but thought it was mostly due to age and menopause. The Analysis was very interesting! I was shocked to find that my hydration level was low and that I was lacking important mineral elements in my diet. I found the whole experience very professional and thorough, not just the tests but the discussions and advice that went with it. I would recommend to everyone, especially with the reminder e-mails and follow up re-tests to keep the motivation going.”
