Meet The Bodies Under Construction Team


Mike Davis

Mike Davis has been qualified for over 19 years and has a wealth of experience in treating sports injuries and spinal (neck and back) pain. He has spent the majority of his time in private practice in London working with some of the top orthopaedic and spinal consultants in the UK.

He is a keen runner and as a consequence has a particular interest in running injuries and running based rehabilitation. His other strong interest is in shoulder pain and shoulder rehabilitation.

He uses a wide variety of treatment skills ranging from Acupuncture to joint manipulation plus massage and exercise therapy to alleviate and resolve symptoms such as pain and stiffness .

Mike believes strongly that it is essential not just to treat and resolve the patient’s symptoms-e.g pain, stiffness, swelling but also to analyse and correct their faulty posture and movement patterns. His experience in treating spinal conditions allied with his knowledge of the current evidence based research on the most effective exercises for spinal pain will give patients the best possible opportunity to gain strong healthy pain free spines.

For anyone with running injuries Mike can undertake a detailed biomechanical analysis of your running technique which often is one the causative factors leading to injury. With expert analysis Mike can help fine tune and improve your running pattern to make you a more efficient runner and ultimately less vulnerable to re-injury.

For those looking to lose weight who are unsure of how or where to start Mike can also offer advice based on the current scientific research on nutrition and he can dispel lots of common myths associated with weight loss and provide the most effective strategies for long term gradual weight loss and improved general health and conditioning.

SASKIA BOY

Hi I'm Saskia.

I was first introduced to Pilates during the years I spent pursuing a career in professional dance. I sustained 2 injuries that required surgery and found the benefits of having Pilates in my rehabilitation program life changing. This resulted in me discovering that Pilates was not just a basic form of movement but a way of life that brings longevity to the human body no matter your age or ability.

I'm passionate about the world of Pilates and in helping people grow from strength to strength through movement. Qualifications held are BASI Pilates, Sport Massage, RAD ballet and AIDT dance.

Nikki Hey

Nikki Hey is a STOTT trained Pilates instructor from Johannesburg. She’s been teaching Pilates for many years. When she lived in South Africa, her main focus was teaching private sessions from her home studio. Since moving to the UK in early 2016, she’s started teaching a large number of group classes including 2 for Jessica Pilates in Frimley on a Monday morning.

Nikki comes from a very active and sporting family background. Her parents were sports people and her eldest sister a professional ballet dancer. Nikki did everything from gymnastics to cricket but had a true passion for running/sprinting. Unfortunately, this resulted in a recurring knee injury, which is what led her to Pilates. Nikki was amazed at how beneficial she found Pilates to be, not only for her knee but also her entire body!

Nikki has a true passion for helping people out of pain. She’s a lively and vibrant character who makes her classes both challenging and fun. With a lot of experience in 1:1 work, she has a keen eye for detail and is very hands on, ensuring that all the clients in her class are performing the exercises correctly. Nikki’s witty humour certainly adds to her abdominal workouts!
