Gary graduated with a Masters degree from the University College of Osteopathy, and has since commenced training as a Fellow of Applied Functional Science, completing the prestigious Gift mentor membership programmed from the Gray Institute, USA. As a qualified personal trainer for 17 years, Gary has always had a keen interest in biomechanical function and movement. As a result Gary is passionate about combining hands on osteopathic modalities with functional movement assessments to get to the root cause of your pain. Gary passionately believes that an individual’s symptoms may not necessarily be the cause of their pain, but the effect of dysfunction elsewhere in the body, and as a result Gary relishes the challenge of uncovering the underlying causative factor, and treating this cause not just the symptoms. Gary’s approach to treatment is very ‘hands on’; he uses soft tissue massage and dry needling, joint mobilisation and articulatory techniques, alongside specialist biomechanical movement assessments, mobility and strengthening exercise to help relieve pain.
