The Pure Practice Team

Sonja Bass – Director and Lead Physiotherapist


Sonja is originally from Bath and has been a Chartered Physiotherapist since 1996. She has spent a considerable amount of that time working with professional sportsmen and women. She worked as a physiotherapist with the academy for Bath Rugby for 12 years and simultaneously spent her earlier professional years within the NHS. With the English Institute of Sport she spent eight years working with teams across both summer and winter sports supporting Olympic GB athletes.

Sonja spends a lot of her spare time heading to the beaches of north Cornwall (with a pit stop at Dart’s Farm at every opportunity!) She can often be found sweating out the days stresses at spin classes or local bootcamp.
