Finally, he has found what he is good at and has worked as a soft-tissue therapist for more than 10 years. He practices Bowen, Trigger Point Therapy, sports therapy and Reflexology.

He will not only tell you (before you tell him) what is hurting, but he can also work out what is going to hurt in the future if you don’t do something about it now.

He believes that much of the pain that is often ascribed to arthritis is actually muscle pain; and that keeping your muscles in good health will go a long way to allowing you to remain fit and active as you get older.
He trained in Britain and is registered with the Bowen Therapy Association of Australia.
