    What our clients Say

    My name is Angela and I am a showjumper. I travel all over Europe with my horses to participate at showjumping events on different levels. Everyday I spend couple of hours riding horses and preparing them for the competitions. This is a lot of fun and very enjoyable, but unfortunately there are a few health issues involved, mainly back problems. Riding is a great workout but it strains the back muscles very much, which then results in pain in my case. When I first came to Rob my back was not in very good condition I guess. I even experienced headaches caused by my back problems. They disappeared just after the first treatment and never came back. At the beginning, I went to see him every 3 to 4 weeks to just help to gain a better back health. Now I am so much better that I just have to see him occasionally when I have a specific problem. Rob also showed me a few stretching and strengthening exercises which I can easily do on my own everyday and now I am feeling so much better, the treatment just helps me to enjoy a mainly pain free life and also to prevent damage.

    My training is very intense and I saw Rob for problems with my hip/back. He helps keep me supple for those hurdles!! Thanks Rob!

    I saw Rob because I was getting problems in my hip region when boxing. Rob checked me over and told me it was a problem with my sacro-iliac joint. A few sessions and I was fixed. I see Rob now before any big fight!

    Tom Glover British Masters Lightweight Title 2007


    I first saw Rob when I started getting shoulder and upper back problems after throwing the javelin. Rob explained to me what was going on and after a few treatments my shoulder and back were fine. I see Rob every few months for a check over.

    I have been seeing Rob over the last 6 months for an ongoing shoulder injury. Because of my intense training regime and the fights I find Robs treatments invaluable. I cant recommend him enough!

    Neil Grove

    Neil 'Goliath Grove' Cage Rage World Heavy Weight Champion British heavyweight Neil Grove is the latest fighter to be added to the UFC’s heavyweight division

    I injured my shoulder while on stage and thought I would be off work for the next week. I had two sessions with Rob which helped considerably and kept me on stage!

    Gavin Wilkinson

    Gavin has appeared as Pepper in Mamma Mia!, Baby John / Action in West Side Story, Our House with Suggs, Tom Sawyer in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and most recently as Sam and Gimli in The Lord of the Rings in the recent West End productions. Gavin was a featured dancer in the recent film, The Phantom of the Opera and has appeared in Grange Hill and Smart Alek with Sean Locke

    After a glowing recommendation I took my elderly mother to see Robert with chronic knee and shoulder pain. At the age of 80 she received much relief and professional care. He explained exactly what was going on which eased her concerns. Rob's professional treatment has improved her quality of life.
