About me

*THIS SITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION*

Elite Performance Physiotherapy was established in February 2016 by founder, Natascha Stagg. Natascha qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in South Africa in 2000 and, after relocating to the UK in 2003, has been working at a local private hospital ever since. During that time she gained extensive experience in the management of musculoskeletal pain, using various treatment modalities like acupuncture, joint mobilisations and manipulations, Pilates, and the McKenzie method to treat spinal conditions, TMD, pelvic girdle pain, sports injuries, and more recently, rowing injuries.

Natascha went on to complete her MSc in Manual Therapy in 2012, which gained her accreditation to the MACP, a professional body within Physiotherapy (of which there are only about 1100 members) guaranteeing treatment excellence. Her master’s dissertation studied nerve-related pain and gained her an extensive understanding of pain and the mechanisms by which the body processes pain. In addition to being a member of the MACP, Natascha is also a credentialled McKenzie therapist and acupuncturist. A keen sports person, Natascha has experience in hockey, netball, dance, running and rowing, all of which helps build an understanding of the nuances of particular sports and contributes to the building and implementation of appropriate and effective treatment and rehabilitation programmes.

Natascha uses a combination of hands-on techniques, acupuncture and exercise therapy to manage injuries and assorted musculoskeletal complaints.
