I originally came to Jim with a dream. The idea was to give myself the best possible chance in pursuing a career as far as possible in rugby. I arrived with this dream being non-existent and impossible, in my physical shape and lack or rehab on my knee. Now without a doubt, and I don’t say things lightly, if it had not have been for the hard work of Jim and his help I would definitely not have recovered from my injury and I certainly wouldn’t have had the chance to make my idea and dream a reality and for that I will always be internally grateful to him and the work he put into me. Not just this but I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and will always be proud of the journey I went through with him.

I was recommended to see Jim as part of a wider programme to solve on-going issues with my back. I have been a regular sportsman for all of my life primarily playing basketball and cycling. I have always struggled with flexibility and had a number of back injuries in the past. I drive a lot for a living and it was becoming impossible to drive for more than two hours, I was in discomfort most of the time and generally my mobility was becoming a limiting factor. After a number of intensive sessions with an osteopath, I was advised to have some sports massages to free up the muscles around the lower back, hence my referral to Jim.

What struck me straight away was that Jim was keen to understand what was going on in my life to understand all of the contributing factors to my situation, not just the physical ones, but the emotional ones too. He also focussed specifically on the areas of need. I have had sports massages before and they have been a total body massages. One of the first things Jim said was something along the lines of “I won’t have time to do a whole body massage in one hour and do it properly”. He focused on my almost solely on my lower back, hamstrings and IT bands. The questions, advice and opinions were very also different to what I had heard before but immediately made a lot of sense.

My back is now at the point where I don’t think of it as a problem anymore. I am having regular monthly sessions to keep me flexible and I will soon look to progress this into a wider programme of maintenance and strengthening to keep me mobile and playing the sports that I love.

Jim is approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and honest; I look forward to working with him for a many years to come.

Having entered a few 10ks, half marathons and mountain marathons I regarded myself as fairly fit.

In reality, Jim’s training has made me realise it was selective fitness and my core strength was ignored (or not understood).

The programmes are varied and enjoyable (not withstanding the pain!) and have definitely helped me through a tough physical and emotional period in my life.

I like your approachability – I feel confident in what you prescribe in both exercise and diet. I always feel as if I am achieving something following focused sessions.

I am always impressed that whenever I have a minor injury Jim works with me to identify what caused it, how to recover from it and how to prevent it in the future, this is something that requires time outside of our sessions and something that is much appreciated.

UPDATE June 2017: 

A bit of an update with me, really happy, I'm 15st 13 this morning and that's a lot healthier than when I was just under that weight when was struggling after the cancer.  This time it's having cut out a lot of the crap.  So your flyer is out of date I make it 1 maybe 2lb off 4 stone!???

Food and drink -  I've rarely drank over last 3 months... feel so better for it.  Eating wise - probably been never so on it. No gluten/ dairy - it's a way of life now AND I've cut out a lot of the naughty snacks!!

Exercise-wise - cut down on the running, not everyday!  I still go 2 times a week 3 tops, less distance.   I play squash again!!!!!   Ok this one I think you're have alarm bells about but I hadn't played since the crashes and for the first time it felt right! First time I played ... it didn't feel right after- I could barely walk but I've made a few changes and now it's all cool ! - for me this is quite an achievement- I really didn't think I'd ever play again.  I play table tennis at work every day... didn't think I'd play that like I used to with all the reactive moves and forehand smashes, this has been really good for me.  I do a bit of swimming and I've started popping to the gym a bit again too in the last few weeks - and this is what I need to do more of!  

All in all ... I've tried to carry on all the good I've learnt and basically I've got my life back!! I still have niggles, I don't get worried by them and have confidence the body now fixes itself and when it doesn't I know who to call!! What I'm doing and done I really wouldn't have dreamed of!

=====================ORIGINAL TESTIMONIAL======================

After being hit from behind in a road accident in November and a same again subsequent one in June, 18 months later my neck, shoulder, back and leg problems were getting worse and not better. These had caused serious problems at work and I was unable to complete simple chores around the house. I was at an all time personal low. I had been passed around by the NHS and discharged from physiotherapists despite my problems remaining unfixed.

I had been sent to a pain management centre who instead of trying to fix my problems, were merely trying to get me to accept the pain I was enduring daily. A hospital specialist was set to operate on my shoulder. When I met Jim I told him my goals were simply to return to work (I was on unpaid sickness at the time) and return to the normal life of a 27 year old, as I was so limited with my mobility my 80 year old grandparents were more active than me. To be honest I was very sceptical when I met Jim, I didn’t see how he could succeed where the other medical opinions had failed.

I started seeing Jim in November and now, May I feel a complete different person. Jim fixed my neck, shoulder, back and leg problems. My shoulder that was due to be operated on, no longer required surgery. My surgeon said “you are very lucky to find this man, ’ when I showed him my movement following the Atlas correction Jim had performed. He got the MRI scans out, looked at them and laughed, saying the MRI’s don’t lie. He said lets see if you still feel like that in two months, my next appointment he was astounded with my progress and discharged me again reiterating I had been very lucky finding this therapy.

I returned to work in March, went on holiday in May and went walking, swimming and cycling. Unimaginable at the end of last year. Had I not been introduced to Jim I dread to think where I would be now pain, mentally or financially. Had I lost my job, then house and car etc would have been lost adding further pressures to my fragile state.

I had been suffering from a recurring back complaint for a number of years. I had previously tried both physiotherapy and Pilates which although helpful had not solved the problem.

The training I have done thus far has been very effective in improving the recurring back problem I have had in the past. I have found that Jim has taken the time to investigate the cause of the problem and has therefore been able to design an effective programme that is tailored to my individual needs – rather than other exercise regimes/programmes I have used in the past which I feel have been quite generic.

I have found Jim to be approachable and friendly which makes the pain of exercising slightly easier to bear!
