“Anatomy Matters has been instrumental in keeping the Harlequins on the pitch. Their expertise has led to faster recovery from game day soreness and soft tissue injuries.”
Steph Brennan - Head Physiotherapist Harlequins RFC until 2009
“Anatomy Matters has been providing massage therapy at Harlequins since 2005 and has been treating me during the 2006/7 season. As professional Rugby players, we are put through rigorous training sessions, involving heavy weights and hard contact during field sessions, all of which are essential when playing at an elite level.
The Sports Massage Therapy provided by Julia and Anatomy Matters is invaluable as part of my rest and recovery and keeping my body in prime condition to play important matches.
Earlier this season I suffered a calf tear and the combined sports massage I received along with physiotherapy provided by the club had me back playing a week earlier than expected.
Julia is a very important member of the team.”
Paul Volley - Former Team Captain Harlequins RFC
“I can assure you that your dedication, both in your professional role and as a true London Welsh supporter is very much appreciated by the players and myself alike.”
Adrian Davies, Former Head Coach and Director of
Rugby London Welsh RFC
“After a massage from Julia on Thursday evening, when she worked on my very tight lower back muscles, it made such a difference to me, that on Saturday morning when I did my 5k Parkrun, I ran my best time of the year. I am sure this was down to the fact the treatment had helped relieve so much of the tightness and tension, leaving me feeling better than ever. I know it was the massage that made all the difference!”
Clare Wood, Club Director – The Wimbledon Club
“Julia is a highly-talented professional with broad experience across a range of professional and amateur athletes. She is a long standing and essential part of my training team and has been active in addressing injury prevention and rehabilitation. Her massages are also an important part of my recovery after a hard race.”
Jack Boyer - Team Great Britain age-group triathlete
“I would like to thank you for your time and effort in supplying massage therapy for our first team squad. The standard of therapy administered was of a very high standard and the squad members were very im-pressed by it.”
Julia Hayton, Rehabilitation Coach, Leicester Tigers
“As a former athlete that now has to deal with the sedentary life of an invest-ment banker, I always struggled to find someone that will help me deal with my injuries but with the high professional standards I was used to when I was active sportsman. Julia has finally filled that gap and delivered great service for a number of years now!”
Fernando Ortega Managing Director VTB Capital Plc
“I’d like to recommend Julia Pizzichemi for home visits in South West London, she’s is based around Putney and is happy to travel pretty much anywhere in an SW postcode and some of the W’s too. She’s a therapist for the Harlequins Rugby Team so is certainly not afraid to be firm! It’s working for me – it’s the first time in a while that I’ve been able to build up my training without getting injured.”
Andrew Bloxam, Triathlete
“Mens Sana in Corpore Sano is one of my favourite sayings, and not just because I studied Latin! The concept of physical and mental health leading on from each other is undeniable. As an International Rugby Player I have found that the two go hand in hand, and it is difficult to succeed in business and the workplace without taking care of your health.
Julia is not only highly experienced in sports and massage therapy , but combines those skills with her understanding of wellness and the importance of general physical health. I would not hesitate to recommend Anatomy Matters at an individual and a corporate level.”
