Elrina Van Zyl

Founder & Practice Principal

Elrina van Zyl BSc(Physio) MCSP MAACP SRP Cert KHT (Seoul) Cert Mummy MOT practitioner

Elrina is a Chartered and State registered physiotherapist with almost 25 years experience.

She is also a member of the Acupuncture Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and holds her certification in Korean hand therapy from Seoul enabling her to treat a very wide variety of conditions not normally treated by physiotherapists. Her interest in acupuncture started due to the dry needling she was already practicing in SA and she’s subsequently explored this fascinating treatment, training in it and has further specialised in Korean hand therapy which is a form of micro acupuncture which can be non invasive for needle phobic patients.

Originally trained in South Africa, she ran her own practice there till 18 years ago when she moved to the UK. She has since worked with some of the top knee, shoulder and back surgeons in London before moving to Fleet 13 years ago and setting up her practice here. She still trains with top surgeons and practitioners monthly to keep her skills current.

She was the among the first group of Mummy MOT practitioners to be trained and now brings specialist post natal physiotherapy and rehabilitation to her clients. She is also currently training with a Hartley street biomechanics practice in BioPelvic neurodynamics to get cutting edge tecniques to her patients.

She has evolved as a practitioner over the years with a special interest in complex chronic pain which has brought her to pelvic pain and working with women in particular in this area. Her firm belief is that prevention is better than cure and that knowledge is power – through education and training clients can be given back control over their health and quality of life.
