After she qualified in 2012, Vanesha worked for Barts Health Trust for 3 years where she gained experience in many areas of Physiotherapy such as Musculoskeletal Medicine, Orthopeadics, Respiratory, Womens Health, Amputee Rehabilitation and Neurology to name a few before expanding her experience by helping to setup a clinic in Mayfair, London.


Vanesha was selected to be on the team providing physiotherapy at London 2012 Olympic Games, where she worked alongside many celebrities and sporting individuals.
