I now live on the beautiful Orkney Islands. It was in 1976 that I moved to Orkney with my wife and 2 yr old son. I was born in Stromness in the Orkney Islands but was reared mainly in the Midlands due to my parents moving back to my fathers home town when I was very young. I was always involved in sporting activities and entered the working environment as a research chemist.
How I got involved in Reflexology and sports therapy is down to my daughter's medical problems when she was an infant. The results of treating her with reflexology techniques was amazing and I have never stopped being amazed at its effects on clients. However, many clients needed a more direct physical treatment and so I studied for my Diploma in Sports Therapy and qualified after 3 years study and training.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a reflexologist with the Scottish School of Reflexology in 1993 and am registered with the International Federation of Reflexologists. The Clinic has been running continuously since 1993. On offer is Classical Reflexology performed on either the feet or hands. Abdominal reflexology is also available.
In 2003 I qualified as a Sports Therapist and a was granted membership of The Society of Sports Therapists. Having been involved in a wide variety of sports ranging from Rugby, Fencing, Basketball, Javelin, Squash, Badminton, has proved to be vital in understanding the stresses incurred in sport. Such experience helps in formulating rehab programmes following treatment on clients who have sustained an injury. On offer is massage, joint mobilisation, taping, MET along with other physical therapy techniques.
To review prices and appointment times please see my web page www.gtclinic.co.uk or contact by telephone 01857 87 57 45.
Even though Orkney has a small population a great number of sports are practiced here hence the value of my past sporting experiences. More information is available on my web site. Before any treatment is done I will have carried out a clinical examination and assessment to determine the type, location and extent of any injury. Using this information a treatment protocol will be proposed and carried out or modified with client informed consent.
