Assessment Based Bowen Technique 

Bringing you pain relief, posture correction, enhanced sports performance and injury management in Stockport & Cheadle, Cheshire.

With more than thirty years experience in teaching martial arts and over twenty five years in delivering physical therapy the importance of core physical health, created through  lifestyle  balance has become increasingly obvious to me.

Bowen Technique also known as Bowen Therapy is completely safe for anyone from a newborn baby to the most frail and elderly and everyone in between. It is a fast and effective way to treat muscular / skeletal issues from sporting injuries, general aches and pains to postural alignment. The Bowen Technique that I use specifically targets the patient’s musculoskeletal system to bring it back into tonal symmetry.


I work out of two locations:Heaton Moor and Cheadle, making me easily accessible from Heaton Mersey, Heaton Norris, Heaton Chapel, Didsbury, Gatley and Wilmslow.

As we all know  prevention is better than cure . Invest in your body, invest in healthy weight, mobility and function. As well as physical therapy I can provide coaching to help you to adopt  a well balanced holistic approach to good health. If you've left it a little late and you're already suffering, invest in yourself I can help you with:

Neck / Back Pain.

Knee and Hip Pain.

Frozen Shoulder. 

My approach to Total Health extends beyond fixing specific ailments to areas such as:

Sporting performance.

Sports Injuries.

Posture correction.

Stress related health issues; Insomnia, headaches etc.
