Meet The Team
Hayley Rice Bsc(Hons)
Director and Head Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor
I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from Nottingham University graduating with a First Class Honour Degree. I am a member of both the HPCP and the CSP. I started working at Coventry University Hospital as an orthopaedic research physiotherapist, where I worked alongside Consultants in a fracture clinic and on the orthopaedic wards. In 2013 I joined Oxford University Hospital where I worked in a variety of different clinical settings including outpatients, orthopaedics, intensive care and general medical wards. I then decided to specialise as a Senior Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and have worked at both Oxford University Hospital and Warwick Hospital in this role.
I have a very 'hands on' approach to treatment and have completed various courses in advanced manual therapy. I also have a diploma in Sports Massage. I have completed my APPI level 1 and 2 matwork pilates courses. As well as my physiotherapy, I also run group based pilates classes at various locations across Warwickshire.
I like to keep active, and enjoy running on a regular basis!
Melanie De Luca Bsc(Hons)
Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor
I qualified as a Physiotherapist (BSc Hons) from University of Brighton in 2008. I gained most of my experience in musculoskeletal, orthopaedics, neurology and hydrotherapy from working in the South East at a small private hospital.
In 2011 I moved to Warwickshire and worked initially at a specialist neurological care home as a Physiotherapist and Therapy Manager, and then into a private clinic as a Physiotherapist and Clinic Manager. Being a Physiotherapist allows me to help people reach their full potential following injury and maintain the best quality of life.
I wanted to use my Pilates skills as part of my physiotherapy practice so started working in private clinics to enable this. I am a Fully Certified Matwork Pilates Instructor (APPI) gaining my qualification in 2011 and have been teaching Pilates in classes and 1:1 sessions since 2009. I have done various additional Pilates courses including small equipment, Neurology, Ante/Post Natal, Breast Cancer Rehabilitation and Reformer training. I love the way Pilates complements physiotherapy practice and works for everyone!
I am a very active person and enjoy exercise, socialising and running around after my little boy!
