Tom is an experienced Physiotherapist, having worked as a Physio since 1993.
He has spent 3 years training in the Ridgway Method.

- Dry Needling
- The Watson Method (Headache assessment/ treatment)

Tom utilises a ‘whole body’ approach to assessing injury and pain.
He doesn’t just focus on where it hurts, he looks for the cause.
His approach follows a ‘step by step checklist‘, which involves clients and is tailored to get their “good result” as fast as possible.
Once he has established the cause of a condition, he explains this to clients.
All clients then receive exercises and strategies to maintain improvements at home and in between sessions.
He uses lousy jokes in most sessions.
Tom’s interests include treating persistent neck pain and headaches, at the other end of the body he enjoys diagnosing and treating tricky hamstrings and lower backs.
When not at work Tom is an avid surfer, surfing with his kids whenever possible.
