The combination of his sporting and fitness background with his osteopathic skills gives him a broad understanding of the body’s movements and functions. This enables him to incorporate a holistic view into his treatments.
“Osteopathy is more than just rubbing the bit that hurts, its holistic. The body is a single unit. We ask why does it hurt? What compensations have failed and how can we make corrections to allow the body to function efficiently?”
