I started The Bingley Physiotherapy Practice in 2008 and since then I’m thrilled how the business has grown and I have had the good fortune to be joined by a great team of therapists and my superb admin team.
I undertook my physio training as a mature student, having a previous degree in Engineering and a career working in corporate sales. The decision to retrain was not taken lightly and was a pivotal point in my life, but it has paid dividends in all facets of my life. I now get to connect with the most incredible and diverse people.
I absolutely love my job! I’m truly passionate about getting people back to health and fitness, enabling them to do the things that they love and to live their life to the full.
It is a privilege to play my part in facilitating the process and to have a positive influence on how my clients progress towards their goals and full fitness. There is nothing more inspiring than seeing how you can impact someone else’s quality of life.
My approach to therapy is grounded in an evidence-informed assessment model – the Integrated Systems Model (ISM) incorporating the Thoracic Ring Approach™. I started my ISM journey in 2009 with two-world renowned international teachers and clinicians – Diane Lee and LJ Lee, from Canada. Subsequently, I have gone on to assist both LJ, between 2013-2015, and Diane from 2017 and most recently on Diane’s 3-week UK 2019 ISM Series. This learning journey has taken me all over the UK, Ireland and to Canada and introduced me to other clinicians from all over the world.
I am now enjoying the challenge of ISM Certification with Diane and really looking forward to future opportunities to learn with Diane and the rest of the team. I continue to be inspired by Diane’s immense drive and enthusiasm to share her knowledge with others and her open-minded approach.
Together with ISM, I am trained in Visceral Manipulation, studying with the Barral Institute UK, which provides the means to treat impairments in the Visceral system that are impacting the body alongside the musculoskeletal (articular and neuromuscular) and myofascial systems.
Manual therapy for the Cranium forms another important part of my treatment, based upon my study with Doreen Killens, another Canadian Clinician, lecture and author of new book Mobilisation of the Myofascial System.
I believe that this approach gives me an understanding of the integration and relationship between and within the different systems of the body and that I have a diverse set of tools to assess and treat the unique and specific issues of the individual.
This incredibly successful style of physiotherapy forms the lynch pin of my movement-based treatment approach – focusing on what really matters to each individual.
Although I don’t have any magic wands, this approach consistently delivers fantastic results, and my clients often tell me I can get them better where others haven’t.
Jacqui’s clarity and range of manipulative skills have significantly helped my specific complaint where not many others have and her work with me has felt truly holistic in the sense that I’ve felt seen and acknowledged as a whole person (not just the problem!), as a mover and a therapist and an interaction of visceral and musculoskeletal systems. Hugely grateful for her intuition and sensitivity. If you work with your body (and prefer working with it, rather than having someone ‘adjust’ it or intervene forcefully) I would highly recommend Jacqui to you.Jennifer-Lynn
In my life
Married with two teenage boys and a dog, we lead a pretty hectic but exciting life. When we’re not running the boys around to all their rugby or rowing training and music activities, I like to try to keep active myself.
I took up triathlons in 2010, and I have done several sprint and standard distance events over the years. In 2013, I did the Coast-to-Coast bike ride with my husband Paul.
More recently, a knee injury has sent me back to the gym and I am absolutely loving my weight training. Then there is of course, my gorgeous dog, Jess, and spending time out with her is my special chillout time in my week.
Our family ‘sport’ is skiing – being at the top of a mountain in the Alps on a cold, sunny morning is one of my ‘happy places. My boys have both skied since they were 4 years old, so I have my work cut out now trying to keep up with them.
When I get the opportunity for some precious downtime, I love going to the cinema, watching sport, reading books and I have a regular French lesson each week. We also love going to hear live music.
