James provide honest professional opinions, developed a management plan at the very beginning and set realistic expectations of what we could achieve or not. Good availability for appointments and flexible fair fees structure. Has motivated me to make a major lifestyle change on long term fitness. Wan

I went to see James with what turned out to be frozen shoulder. James was great, explaining clearly what was the issue and how physio would help. In addition to the physio he showed me a number of exercises that I should do in between sessions. I would recommend James.

Been to James for rugby injuries years ago and came back recently due to back and groin issues. He sorted me insoles for my flat feet he picked up on. Done a great job at sorting my back out. Knows what he’s on about

I cannot speak highly enough about James and Ruth! My 7 year old had quite a difficult elbow injury to treat. James was patient and worked so well with my son; he made the sessions fun and interesting. He even bought him an Easter egg to celebrate arm straightening after months of it being bent! Ruth was always lovely to deal with, and very understanding when we had to reschedule appointments. We feel blessed to have found such an excellent physio, and have no hesistation in recommending him.

James is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I had been suffering with a neck and shoulder injury for years and no previous physiotherapists was able to give me relief. In just a few months with James, i feel so much better and i'm gaining back my quality of life.

Both my wife and I have been treated by James for injuries over the past few months. The treatment has been simply outstanding and I have now fully recovered from an Achilles injury that I had for two years. My wife fell from her horse and is now thanks to James able to ride again. Not only is the treatment first class but James is the consummate professional, an extremely nice and engaging individual and delivers an all round very high level of service. I can’t rate him highly enough. A true 5 star service.

I went to James to treat a tear to my MCL. James was fantastic at explaining the problem as well as the different anatomy. He used a range of techniques over the course of the treatment to aid recovery. It was really useful to have a final session showing my boyfriend how to use a massage gun. Would use James again and would highly recommend him to others!

Suffered a torn MCL and hamstring damage, after seeing the NHS I was told it would be months before I was seen. Had a free phone call with James and within a week we were starting my treatment, which has been excellent. This has seen me return to rugby in less time than I would have even imagined, not to mention a great guy. Would highly recommend.

After suffering a mild stroke in July 2021, I saw James for 6 sessions to see if he could improve my shoulder and arm flexibility. Success ! I can now put on a coat without discomfort and reach my back to wash when in the shower.
