Sport Optimisation Consultation Process
Payment is required on booking and all necessary paperwork for your consultation will be sent to you via encrypted email within 24 hours. Payment can be made by BACS bank transfer or via the website.
Your paperwork should be completed and returned to me at least 72 hours in advance of your consultation, in order to give me time to consider your 3-day food/lifestyle diary in relation to your training and sporting goals, and run it through the Nutritics analysis for detailed nutrient assessment.
Silver and Gold Programmes
If you’ve booked a Silver or Gold programme, your physio treatment session will take place prior to your separate consultation (Zoom or face-to-face), in order to include any physical therapy information following your treatment, as well as include your Tanita Body Scan results.
If you’re new to physio treatment with me, there is a Consultation/GDPR form which should be completed and then brought with you to your treatment, or emailed back to me in advance:
For those choosing the Gold programme, you’ll receive your Athlete Nutrigenomics DNA test (with full instructions) a few days after your booking. Once the laboratory receives your completed test, it takes approximately 21 days for the results to be returned to me for thorough analysis, along with your Nutritics dietary and Tanita Body Scan results.
All results will then be discussed during a separate face-to-face or Zoom consultation, within the context of your training plan, race/event and fitness level, and include advice regarding appropriate food choices for your specific pre- and post-training dietary needs.
For those wanting a bespoke, on-going programme of sports physio, sports nutrition, functional testing and/or assessments, please get in touch with me so I can ascertain your specific sporting needs.

COVID-19: Your Health Is My Priority.
Due to Covid-19, I have instigated specific hygiene protocols for Silver and Gold Sport Optimisation programmes. Please ensure you have read my Hygiene Protocol which explain procedures on arrival and confirms that you’re happy to have treatment and consultation under these measures. A signed copy of this, along with the Physio Consent and Screening form should be brought with you to your treatment or emailed back to me 24 hours in advance.
Due to the elapsed time between your physical treatment and Sport Optimisation consultation, a Covid-19 Symptoms Check form should be completed and brought with you to this consultation, or emailed back to me 24 hours in advance.
But please don’t worry - I’ll be reminding you of the forms you need to complete before each session with me!
Payment is required for all Sports Optimisation consultations and programmes on booking.
Any functional laboratory tests or supplements are charged in addition to the consultation or programme fee, and payment is required on ordering these.
Multi-consultation programmes should be completed within a time period agreed with Amanda Heading in writing.
Please note that the full Sports Optimisation fee will be charged if you fail to keep your appointment or cancel/amend with less than 24 working hours in advance. This applies to a single consultation or a multi-consultation programme.
Once paperwork has been received by Amanda Heading for a Sports Optimisation consultation or programme, no refunds can be given.
I do my best to re-book any late cancellation slots in order to avoid charging cancellation fees, but this is not always possible if less than 24 hours’ notice is given.
Working hours’ notice is weekdays 8am-6pm and Saturdays 9am-12noon.
Appointments booked for a Tuesday following a bank holiday, should be cancelled or changed by midday on the Saturday prior.
