Victoria Cartwright

Graphic designer

I swapped graphic design to physio treatment and overcame my back injury.

I needed some physio from long hours at a desk, which is a pretty common thing in my industry. My physiotherapist found out what I did for a living and asked me if I'd be willing to trade services. I created some signage for her facility and also a website, which she were really happy with.

The personal results for me were incredibly valuable. I went to the clinic hobbling around and now I can do all kind of things like swim, cycle and do yoga. I never thought this was possible because of my injuries but now I feel fully functional again.

I think it's a great idea that Fitswap is going to be launched because it fills a real gap for the same thing to keep happening for me and for other people. Let’s fitswap!
