" I am a professional drummer and went to see Paul when I began to develop severe tension, numbness and shooting pains in the muscles along my forearm and in and around my wrist and thumb. Paul realised that my symptoms were probably due to a fractured Scaphoid bone (circled in red) in my wrist which had occured two years previously. I was getting these sensations every time I played and was in a lot of discomfort, practically unable to play.
On my first session with Paul, he listened closely to my description of the pain and tried to establish why it may have come about. He began work and was able to get to the root of the problem immediately.
After a single, very thorough session I had fantastic results and knew I had found the right man to help me get through this injury. The tension in my arm was massively reduced and the shooting pains all but gone. I was able to resume my practising and performing schedule straight away which was a huge relief. After 3 sessions with Paul my arm felt as good as new! Paul was also able to offer invaluable advice on how to avoid similar problems arising again.
I was extremely impressed with Paul's personal and sympathetic approach and delighted with the wonders he worked on the tension in my arm which I thought was going to keep me out of work for a LONG time . I would recommend him to anybody I know with any similar injuries".
"Five years ago, at a very young age, I began to develop RSI type symptoms. At the time I was playing in teaching a lot of guitar, and the pain began in my fingers of my left hand. My natural reaction was to shift most of the burden onto my right hand when I was typing, and as a result the symptoms seemed to spread all the way up both of my arms.
I searched for a cure, was put on multiple types of painkillers and anti-inflammatories by several GPs, was treated by osteopaths and sports masseurs but nothing seemed to work. When starting a new job in London, I looked on the Internet for someone to take on management of my condition as I knew it would involve a lot of computer based work. I stumbled across Paul's webpage and he seemed to be more in tune with the symptoms associated with RSI than anyone else I had approached, so I decided to give him a try.
Since that first meeting, the results have been extraordinary. His depth of experience means that he was able to pinpoint the source of the problem and treat accordingly. Whilst I am not "cured", the regular treatments keep symptoms at bay and allow me to live and work with effectively no restrictions. His ultimate aim is to work with my body so that I will be able to manage my symptoms without his help, and if someone had told me that my condition would be in such good shape even six months ago, I would never have believed them".

"Paul has magic fingers! He has given me emergency treatment for back problems a couple of times, and each time the difference before and after seeing him was remarkable. A walk to his office from the tube which had taken me nearly 30 painful minutes, was reduced to a sprightly 5 minutes after one particular session with Paul! I keep my emergency appointments to a minimum by visiting Paul regularly, to try to prevent bad posture, incorrect alignments, etc. from recurring. I would recommend regular preventative maintenance sessions for your body in the same way as you regularly visit the dentist or service your car."
