Adrenaline-driven osteopathy for the back-breaking, muscle straining, gut-wrenching, neck-wringing world of elite sports.

I have been working James in Bath for just shy of a year. I have to say that he has a great understanding of sport and performances and the combination of types of treatments he knows and uses really helps me with my training and racing. James is really knowledgeable in his field as an osteopath and I always feel he is the person to go to first with any issues as I feel confident in his planning and treatment options. I have had a lot of treatment from around the world due to my racing and training schedule and I feel he is passionate and good at what he does that I want him on my team as we head into the Olympic games.

  Working with me  

An insightful and skilful practitioner with a wealth of experience successfully brings together the unique system-body wide analysis and treatment of osteopathy into the rigorously demanding sporting world. 

Working with athletes is my bread and butter and I am trusted by international teams and individuals. I have worked within a variety of elite sports ranging from the GB and England Karate Team, world-class individual athletics sprinters competing at Olympic level, all the way through to international skeleton bobsleigh athletes. You could say I have seen it all. 

I work with athletes on a one-to-one independent basis, as well as integrated within teams both clinic-based or at your place of training and competition.

  • recovering from an injury in need of ongoing or urgent care

  • working to improve your developent and performance

  • in need of pre-season anatomical balance all the way to pre-race final adjustments

  • looking to keep on top of your general maintenance

  • needing a seamless addition 

I am here to work with you to help you achieve your goals.

When I’m in Bath I always make sure I check in with James. I have been seeing James for many years and he is always very thoughtful and thorough. Every session he ensures that I leave feeling better than when I arrived. James has also gone that extra mile by supporting me at several athletics competitions as a personal osteopath, this not only exemplifies how kind and enthusiastic James is as a person but also how dedicated has is as a therapist. Thanks for your support James!
