Biography

Another of our directors, Justin qualified as an Osteopath in January 2017, after 4 years of full-time study at the British School of Osteopathy. Like all Osteopaths, he is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) - registration number 9030.  He combines a structural approach to diagnosis with treatments that use both bio-mechanical and cranial techniques.

"My career as a therapist started after 20 years working as a Production Manager in television, when I decided it was time for a change.  My first qualification was an intensive Acupuncture course at the Healing and Acupuncture College under the tutelage of Jamie Hedger.  Soon after that I qualified with ITEC in Massage and then Sports Massage, after which I continued adding a range of remedial and therapeutic massage techniques.  Osteopathy seemed a natural direction for me, as I've had osteopathic treatment for my own back problems in the past.

One of the aspects of being a therapist I most enjoy is spending time with patients.  GPs rarely get to spend more than 10 minutes with each of their patients.  We have the advantage of spending up to an hour with each person and it's often not until the second half of a treatment that we might discover something that might give us a further clue as to what the problem is or how best we can treat them.

Along with Robert, I also run our sister company, Accredited Massage Courses, which runs - you guessed it - massage courses.  We teach the basics to beginners as well as advanced techniques to therapists wanting to expand their range of skills.  I'm looking forward to adding some osteopathic expertise to some of the massage courses."
