In 2003, Anna founded Kinesis, a renowned and multi-faceted Physiotherapy and fitness company.
In 2011 she went back to doing what she does best as Anna Barnsley Physio; focussing on her clinical work, hands on, with her patients, mentoring staff and keeping her business client focused, which is also where she is happiest.
Anna has also recently joined BodySpace as an advisor and part of their expert health and fitness team.
‘I have been fortunate enough to have worked with many amazing people through my career (so far!) and to have experienced incredible diversity in my work, from the sweat, blood, mud and adrenalin of elite rugby to the unique buzz and privilege of taking care of pop stars on long and exhausting tours. I have experienced the bonkers but fun world of television and radio and have taught many inspiring physios on their path to deliver treatment with experience, care, conscience and expertise. But, ultimately, it’s always about the same thing. Appreciating the high of getting someone better, fitter, stronger, faster. And that’s life changing.’
