We received the tragic news of the passing of our friend and former colleague, Mike Ho, who died on Monday 18th March. No doubt those who knew Mike over his years at Bodybalance will be deeply upset at this news.
Mike was a popular and well liked part of the Bodybalance team from 2011 – 2018, helping thousands of patients over his 7 years of employment at our clinics in Hatfield and Mil Hill, including working with Saracens Mavericks, EIS and TASS athletes, and many other elite athlete programmes. Mike was also a guest lecturer to the physiotherapy students at University of Hertfordshire and volunteered each year to help out at the finish line of the London Marathon.
We will remember Mike for his great love for physiotherapy as a profession and his strident desire to always achieve the best outcome possible for his patients. He was one of those people who always genuinely cared for the patient’s interests, and who wanted to give all he could to help them get over their injury and get back to doing whatever was their goal. Mike was also a friend, supporter and mentor to so many of our team over the years, both at work and outside of work. His example always encouraged us to do better.
Unfortunately, like so many other young men in the UK, Mike also struggled with his mental health. We ask that anyone struggling with their own mental health or with the circumstances of a loss such as this, please speak to someone.
