SKILLS:

My clients are typically sports men, women and young people that have injuries they wish to rehabilitate; events that they wish to be in top form for; general postural misalignments; muscle fatigue; or aches and pains that require diagnosis and remedial work.

I work as a professional rugby SMT for Oakmeadians RFC 3 days a week doing pitch side first aid at matches and injury assessment and rehab in training sessions. My previous season I shadowed at Lytchett Minster RFC.

I enjoy event work which has included Sports Massage at Latitude Festival and Beautiful Days Festival; RFC Rugby 7’s Tournament – 3 days of Rugby Men’s, Ladies, and youth teams; The Dorset Destroyers Wheelchair Rugby Club, 26 hour wheelchair rugby marathon World Record Attempt.

Plus many hours of observation in AECC Chiropractic Clinic.

MY STYLE OF TREATMENT

I incorporate my good anatomical and medical science-based knowledge with the ability to use my senses to tune in to and feel for pain and problems in the body. I then use my learnt techniques to encourage soft tissue to relax and rejuvenate.

AMBITION

After my kids have left home, I want to spend my year working 6 months in the Alps and 6 months touring with the World Surf League.

DID YOU KNOW….

I grew up on the beach and have surfed Ulu Watu, Bali.
