Presenter Details Dr Rachel Garrod PhD. MSc. MCSP
Rachel graduated from Guys School of Physiotherapy in 1991 and then worked in a number of teaching hospitals in London. In 1987 she obtained a M.Sc. in Health Sciences and specialised in respiratory care. In 2001 she was awarded a PhD in pulmonary rehabilitation. As Assistant Professor Physiotherapy, St George’s University she led on undergraduate and post graduate respiratory teaching and research. With over 100 peer reviewed publications, a number of book chapters and as editor of “Pulmonary Rehabilitation: An interdisciplinary approach”, she is an international expert on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Clinically, Rachel’s area of expertise is in the delivery of exercise for people with chronic health problems, such as diabetes, COPD, renal failure and hypertension. Her rehabilitation programmes feature components such as balance re-education, progressive resisted exercise, gait and posture training. She teaches breathing re-training and provides physical activity therapies for people with cardio-respiratory conditions, such as asthma, emphysema, hyperventilation, and panic disorders. She is trained in both mindfulness and hypnotherapy.
Rachel moved to Spain in 2014, where she provides domiciliary respiratory physiotherapy and stop smoking counselling. She works in in conjunction with a number of hospitals and clinics in Marbella.  Rachel continues to be active in lecturing, most recently speaking at the 29th Annual Panhellenic Scientific Congress of Physiotherapy, Athens, December 2019.
