Chris is a very approachable and empathetic practitioner, managing to place patients at ease throughout the course of treatments, whilst still maintaining professionalism. Being a keen sportsman Chris specialises in deep tissue – sports massage. This deep tissue work combined with osteopathy allows him to provide excellent treatments, great diagnostic advice and top end management for sporting individuals at all levels.
Chris has some great experience, working predominately in sports injury clinics and with some of the high level local rugby clubs in St. Albans and the Hertfordshire area.
“The aims of my treatments are to restore my patients to their optimum, where they can achieve their goals, whether that’s to walk down the road or to run a marathon. Thanks to advice and exercises my treatment continues outside the treatment room, allowing my patients to have more control over their pain and helping to reduce healing time.”
“My focus for treatment lies on the primary cause of the problem, as often many practitioners find themselves treating the end result, which is often only a temporary cure or solution ”
Chris graduated after completing a four year full-time course at the prestigious British School of Osteopathy in London, gaining a masters degree in Osteopathy. He is a full member of the British Osteopathic Association (BOA) and is a state-registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).
