Judith is a Chartered Physiotherapist with 20 years of post graduate experience. This has been gained within the NHS and private Healthcare settings, including 10 years as team Physiotherapist for Edinburgh Academicals Rugby Club. Her particular interests lie in the treatment of occupation related injuries, sports injuries and spinal pain.

In 2002 Judith decided to work in the private sector where she felt she could offer her patients a more comprehensive Physiotherapy service, unrestricted by appointment times and waiting lists. At this time she set up a clinic on Frederick Street called Alternative Physiotherapy, which she ran until 2008. She then joined forces with Bryony White to establish a new business called Balanced Physiotherapy. In 2014 Judith joined with Pilates Works to form BALANCED.
