How my treatment can help you
I understand how frustrating an injury is, you want quick but long lasting results that will get to the root of the problem, not just a few clicks that will keep you going back to your physical therapist again and again.
If you’re looking for something that will genuinely have long term, effective results and is used by forward thinking Yoga teachers, professional ballet dancers and sports people, then my specific no nonsense approach could be for you!
My treatments work because they are different to what you might expect from physical therapy. I don’t just deal with the muscles and joints, I get into working with all the deep layers of the body, the areas which make us work! More often than not just treating the muscles and joints alone is not enough to get long term effective results and many of the people I see in my clinic have already tried conventional structural treatment like physio, osteopathy and chiropractic treatment.
Through my unique approach to sports injury treatment I identify areas that are compromising your ability to move freely, causing you pain or injury. Then, using highly skilled, new advancements in physical therapy I unlock restrictions in specific structures of the body, which could be muscles, joints, organs, blood vessels or nerves with firm but gentle techniques.
Initial changes that happen after treatment
The result of this approach to treatment is more movement with less strain and effort. It feels deeply relaxing, as though a weight has been lifted, and you’ll be reacquainted with areas of your body you’ve not been able to access for some time. You may still experience symptoms initially but over the following days your body will continue to adapt to the changes and symptoms will start to dissipate.
Things that people notice after a treatment are:
- Ease and movement in the body
- Change in pain perception
- A better quality of energy
- Change in their posture
- Feel taller,
- Ease of muscle recruitment and core support
- More weighted in their feet, legs, hips, spine and shoulders.
2 – 7 days after treatment
The real magic of this work is that, unlike many other physical therapies that only focus on the muscles and joints, there is a continued deep physiological change that will begin to affect the muscles, nerves and joints over the following few days to weeks to come. The great thing about this is you need less treatment than you would if you went to a purely musculo-skeletal therapist that only deals with muscles and joints. It is quite often the case that people say they get continued change over the following days to weeks after one of my treatments.
“I have had LOTS of body work of various types over the years and I found Grahams work to be subtle but impactful. It felt as though the tissues kept opening up after I had seen him for our session.”

What I offer is a truly unique approach to sports injury treatment which is specific to your problem and tailored to your goals.
What sets my approach part form other forms of bodywork is the skill at listening and detecting multiple different layers of the problem which gives a much more 3D perspective on the nature of the problem and the relationships that are involved.
