Masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy

I graduated with a masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy. Prior to this I studied Physiology at Cardiff University where I graduated with honours. I also qualified in medical acupuncture and kinesiology taping. 

A proud Welshman I  am an avid rugby fan and have spent many years playing rugby for North Wales, my local team and university teams. Osteopathy has played a big part in maintaining my ability to play after countless injuries. 

As well as my love for Rugby, I am also a very keen skier. After graduating I spent time in the French Alps treating injured skiers and snowboarders and helping them get back on the slopes as soon as possible.

I approach the body as a whole unit and treat in a predominantly structural manner in order to reduce pain and improve function. I treat people of all ages suffering from a variety of complaints ranging from chronic postural or degenerative conditions to acute injuries.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you.

Why did you become an Osteopath?

I always wanted to work in a medical profession and wanted to help people. As a previous patient I could see how Osteopathy can really make a difference in people’s lives and help them overcome pain. I wanted to be the person who helps others!

What makes your job worthwhile?

Helping people overcome pain and getting them back to doing the things that they enjoy.

What is unique about how you work?

I like to treat structurally using a variety of manipulation, articulation and massage techniques. I work not only to reduce pain, but to try and improve function!

Who has influenced you most in your career as an osteopath?

My childhood osteopath who treated me when I was young and helped me deal with a long term shoulder injury. It was him that introduced me to osteopathy and made me want to become an osteopath!
