Profile Story

I'm an Osteopath, Acupuncurist by day. I run a healthcare practice in Suffolk proving a care pathway for people looking to recover and achieve more from their bodies. Outside of work i'm an active person, struggling to sit still. Whether its turning my hand to DIY or taking up a new sport. i'm about to become a father for the first time, opening myself up to a whole new adventure.

I am fascinated with how people move; why some achieve great feats and how some can remain completely injury free. I find the human body an intriguing machine, as it remains the one thing we all have, yet we all use it so very differently. For me my professional interests revolve around helping people achieve quantifiable gains in their performance. This may be at the level of elite motor sport or the endurance athlete, but also in helping my elderly patients to become more mobile to enable them to get out and enjoy their gardens and improve their quality of life.

Through developing my skills in acupuncture I have opened up my scope of practice even further; I now blend it regularly with my hands on osteopathic care. This combination of treatments allows me to help more delicate cases, for example working with pregnant women, to enable them to remain as mobile as possible to avoid pain and ready them for an easier labor. But it also allows me to achieve results from cases as simple as helping alleviate an office workers persistent headaches.

In this profession you are only as good as your last patient; each time a patient steps through my clinic door I want their treatment to be the best I have achieved. There is a huge amount of personal reward to be had in being able to help people simply feel better or achieve their desired performance gains.

Mission Statement

Rehabilitate, Regenerate, Relax. I believe in prevention over reaction. i spend my time educating my patients about their body to enable them to achieve the most from their day to day life.
