Our Founder Story
Hello and welcome to my website! I am a Chartered Physiotherapist by background and specialise in therapeutic exercise for individuals managing long-term or chronic conditions, with an emphasis on Yogic, Pilates and Strength and Conditioning principles. My passion for sport and exercise initially led me to study Sports Therapy. At this time, I was lucky enough to work with some of the country’s best track and field athletes leading up to the London 2012 Olympics.
I was then keen to continue formal study and embarked on a masters in Physiotherapy. I gained more clinical experience in The NHS; paediatrics, neurology, orthopaedics and hydrotherapy to name a few. This gave me a more medical grounding and the concept of holistic care really started to resonate.
When graduating in 2015, I worked in the NHS, private practice and managed a small private client caseload. Enrolling onto further courses in Pilates, Yoga, Mindfulness and most recently Lifestyle Medicine has developed my skills since. This, complimented with work experience with orthopaedic consultants, sports physicians and other allied health and fitness professionals has enriched my skills.
I wanted to formally develop a service whereby I could offer my skills, expertise and all-encompassing approach to guide individuals to better health and well-being. That’s when ATO life was born!
When I am not working clinically, I lecture in Physiotherapy at the University of Essex and work to develop my small range of ATO life. products.
What does ATO life. stand for?
‘Ato’ is the number ‘three’ in the Igbo language which is my Father’s native Nigerian Language. The number three is significant, as to me, it symbolises the three main pillars of health – physical, psychological and social. ATO life aims to help you strive for optimal health and well-being through helpful lifestyle habits and choices within these three domains.
