Hannah Thane B.Ost (Hons)

Sports Therapist and Osteopath

From an early age I have been performing in dance shows in theatres across the country. Having sustained many of the common injuries that are prone to dancers, I now have valuable insight on how these injuries occur and what can be done to treat them. I started my career as a massage therapist in 2013, then I progressed on to Sports therapy, joining the Coles Clinic team in 2015.

I studied at the Active Health Academy in Manchester, acquiring a distinction for Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Clinical Sports Therapy. I later followed this up with a qualification in Manipulative Therapy. I am also qualified in Medical Acupuncture as well as Shockwave Therapy. I am a member of the Sports Therapy Organisation (STO) and am fully insured through Balens Insurance.

In 2021 I gained a first-class honours degree in Osteopathy from College of Osteopaths, Staffordshire University in Stoke-On-Trent. I am a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and the General Osteopathic Council.

Lisa Hawkins Bsc Hons STO

Advanced Sports Therapist

For most of my life I have had some involvement in various sports, especially running and swimming. Having had many injuries & niggles over the years I feel my experiences can help with the treatment and rehabilitation of our clients. However, this does not mean that I treat sports injuries alone! I’m happy to help anyone who has concerns with pain or would like advice on rehabilitation.

I have been with the Cole’s team since November 2020 & love being part of this amazingly talented team. I studied BSc Sports Studies at Staffs University & then later went to Active Health in Manchester to gain a distinction in L5 Advanced Clinical Sports Therapy. I am also qualified in Medical Acupuncture as well as Shockwave Therapy. I am a member of the Sports Therapy Organisation (STO) and am fully insured through Balens Insurance.
I look forward to meeting and welcoming you to Coles and helping with any concerns you may have.
