Hannah Dsouza is a specialist physiotherapist experienced in working with musicians, vocalists, musical theatre, dance and circus artists. She helps performing artists with issues relating to sprains, strains, ligament injuries, fractures, dystonia, soft tissue injuries and vocal tension. She also offers services in strength & conditioning, injury prevention, injury rehabilitation, soft tissue mobilisation, manual therapy, vocal massage and instrument/dance specific rehabilitation.

Hannah is a singer and instrumentalist playing keyboard, guitar and ukulele and is also a freestyle, Bollywood and Kathak dancer. “Being a musician and a member of a musical band, I can very well empathise with fellow performers who perform despite being in pain. I realised that I want to work with performers at a very early stage while studying physiotherapy. I strongly believe in the biopsychosocial framework of management while dealing with any patient, especially performers“.
