Q. What are your core beliefs about wellness and health?
My main focus isn’t just on treating the pain or the problem, but fixing the cause, so that you can be self-sufficient with your own training, lifestyle or general day to day activities. Take a little time out of your day to manage your body. We can all find a little time each day to maintain healthy bodies, whether that be training, stretching, exercising or even taking a little time for yourself.
Q. What key health lessons do you like to impart to patients?
Make sure you find time to stretch and do some movement/exercise. You don’t need to do anything really strenuous, but check in with yourself by taking a small amount of time a day to do a little bit of DIY on your body. This small tool can have a huge impact on your health and well-being long term.
Q. What do you enjoy about your job?
I really enjoy fixing people, helping people feel and move better.
Q. What are your extracurricular passions?
I love being active and staying fit, I’ll pretty much do whatever for a little exercise and competition. I’ve been working and participating in sport most of my life and I love it, particularly football (yep, not soccer), rugby, lacrosse, tennis (among other racket sports), cycling and weight lifting. Basically, I’ll get involved with anything really.
