The clinic was set up by Fionnuala Tansey, chartered physiotherapist, in 1994 and employs associate physiotherapists with a specialist interest in manipulative and exercise therapy and Clinical Pilates. Fionnuala Tansey, the Clinical Director, graduated in physiotherapy from University College Dublin and got her post-graduate experience in Toronto, Canada where she specialised in manipulative and sports physiotherapy. On returning to Ireland she worked for many years in the Dublin Spine Clinic and, having gained a Masters degree from Trinity College, then set up her own practice in Booterstown, being head physiotherapist with many of the local rugby and tennis clubs travelling with the teams at weekends.
