I have always been fascinated by the mechanics of the human body, albeit that it wasn't my original career path, I had amassed significant knowledge on sport performance through my time spent in amateur sport. So when I left the corporate world in my late twenties the logical way forward was to venture into health and fitness as my profession. Having studied extensively exercise prescription, fitness assessment, monitoring and personal training and with the numerous sports injury referrals I was seeing my educational emphasis moved towards the rehabilitative side.
This new direction quickly led to further qualifications in body working through Therapeutic, Remedial and Sports Massage. In the 90's I started practising at the London College of Massage Clinic in the West End before being asked to join the London Clinic Physiotherapy Team in Harley St as Clinical Massage Therapist, where I practised for nearly 20 years. That time and experience saw a shift into less invasive processes, such as Myofascial and Neuromuscular techniques, which is where the majority of my work is now based.
I understand the body's need for appropriate intervention whether the patient is an amateur or professional sportsperson, someone suffering from the aches and strains of life, or sufferers of chronic pain and those recovering from surgery of all forms.
Over the years I have worked with a large diversity of patients with a variety of conditions and pain scenarios and that experience has developing the skills I use today. It has also given me a deep insight into the complex, highly fragmented world of care, enabling me to guide patients and their families through situations of physical crisis and the subsequent personal healthcare journeys.
I work extensively through both personal and professional endorsement and referral in both the clinical environment and privately at home. Patients can also be seen at The Charterhouse Clinic in Marylebone, and in Tufnell Park, North London. I shall soon be offering treatment from my clinic near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
