About me. My name is Sasha Wyman and I’m a neurophysiotherapist and owner of Aspire2 Neurophysiotherapy.
I trained at King’s College London and graduated in 1999 with a 2:1 BSc (Hons).
I have predominantly worked in the NHS, gaining skills in many different specialities of physiotherapy. I have specialised in neurophysiotherapy at Colchester hospital.
I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of neurophysiotherapy. In recent years I have presented to the HSP regional meeting and spoken several times at Parkinson’s Uk carers groups. I have also helped to set-up and present a talk on the importance of exercise at a “Newly diagnosed Parkinson’s disease” evening.
I have completed training in Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) for drop foot; Vestibular Rehab; The Bobath Concept and Saebo products. I have a particular interest in movement disorders (Parkinson’s Disease, Parkinson’s plus & Huntington’s Disease) and the research providing evidence that exercise for people living with neurological conditions is now tremendously important. I have set up a Parkinson’s Disease exercise class at Colchester Hospital which has been extremely popular with patients.
I am also a member of both ACPIN (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Neurology) and ACPIVR (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Vestibular Rehabilitation)
When I’m not working I love being a mum to my 8 year old daughter. When I have a spare moment I enjoy a kayak at shingle street, DIY and landscape oil painting.
I feel extremely lucky to be neurophysio. My patients inspire me frequently with their amazing determination and resilience. This is forever humbling and reminds me to appreciate the moment and embrace the day.
