Justin has a longstanding interest in health and wellbeing, and initially trained as a cranio-sacral therapist 20 years ago after seeing the transformative effect on his firstborn child.
More recently, he graduated with a Masters in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy where he took a particular interest in the treatment of complex chronic pain using a combination of mindfulness, acceptance-based therapy and hands-on osteopathy. Justin also enjoyed working in the clinic for expectant mothers, babies and children, and is soon to further his postgraduate training at the Osteopathic Centre for Children.
He has competed at a high level in a variety of sports, and it was the osteopathic treatments that helped his many sporting injuries which drew him to this vocation. This is now an area of special interest.
He has always enjoyed working with his hands and had a previous career working in building and restoration, including a house featured in Grand Designs.
Justin is committed to empowering his clients and getting them actively involved in the resolution of their symptoms. For him it is of great importance to put his patients at ease and allow them to relax so they can gain the most benefit from the treatment. He tailors his approach to each patient based on individual preferences and on his experience, as some people benefit from a more structural approach while others from more subtle techniques such as cranial work. He feels privileged to work intuitively with people of all ages towards their wellbeing.
Justin is passionate about broadening his understanding of different approaches which help clients to recovery and keeps himself updated with latest research.
He is registered with the General Osteopathic Council, is a qualified ITEC level 3 sports massage therapist and can use this, medical taping and medical acupuncture to compliment osteopathic treatments.
