Silver Fern Physio is open!

Elle Tisch

Elle is originally from New Zealand where she completed her degree in Physiotherapy at The Auckland University of Technology in 2000. Elle worked with a New Zealand rugby team providing a full physiotherapy service for four years. She also worked in a private medical hospital where she treated a range of conditions from neurological to musculo-skeletal injuries.

Elle then moved to England in 2003 to further her physiotherapy training and obtained a qualification in Animal Physiotherapy. She was head hunted and employed by the Chinese Eventing team to be the Olympic Team Physiotherapist for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, treating both horses and riders.

She is also a qualified acupuncturist, and has lectured in England and Europe on physiotherapy.


Elle is a keen runner, and to date has run 45 marathons and ultra marathons (it would be considerably more but for Covid-19 pandemic stopping events). She first competed in a running race at the age of 10 years, and won every long distance race she competed in throughout school. 


To date she has only had one running related injury. She puts this down to knowing how to prevent injuries, and acting immediately to any niggles that appear. She has a sports massage 3-4 days following a marathon to ensure there are no problems. She was due to run two of her longest endurance events to date in April 2020 - 'Ten in Ten' with Phoenix running - ten marathons in ten days, and in the following month May 2020 - 'The 777' - 7 countries, 7 marathons, 7 days - hopefully this can go ahead in 2022!


Elle believes it is very important to exercise, both for physical benefits, but more for mental health. You don't need to run marathons, but it is important to be active and here at Silver Fern Physio we want to help keep you moving, pain free, and happy.

Nicole Jobson

Alongside her BSc degree at Loughborough University in Sport Science with Management, where she focussed her study on physiology, biomechanics and sports psychology, Nicole also completed her Sports Massage Therapist training and qualified as a L3 Personal Trainer. She also became a certificated TRX Suspension Training coach.

After University, Nicole spent 5 fast-paced years working in a PR agency specialising in fitness and sport. She then returned to Winchester to run her own specialist communications company, PACE PR. She continues to coach in the local area and treats clients using Sports Massage, Swedish Massage and Myofascial Release techniques. 

Nicole has a sporting background, playing Netball and Basketball to a high level. She is an assistant coach locally for the Holloway Health & Fitness Community where she helps run group exercise, small group PT and stretch-focussed classes. She enjoys staying active and participates in cycling, obstacle course racing, surfing and paddle boarding. She has a taste for adventure having climbed Mt Kilimanjaro, run a marathon and jumped out a plane at 16,000 ft for charity.

Nicole can work on your whole body, or just certain areas depending on what you prefer. You will leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and freer in your movement after a session with Nicole.
