James graduated from the University College of Osteopathy in London with a Masters degree in Osteopathy during which time he also gained qualifications in Sports and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy and kinesiology taping along with additional training in spinal biomechanics and rehabilitation of patients suffering low back pain.
During his training, James treated patients in a range of specialist clinics which included working with chronically ill patients at the Royal Free Hospital, providing free Osteopathic care to the homeless in a local unit and working in the community in a GP surgery close to the University College to name but a few.
James was drawn to study Osteopathy after receiving treatment for a number of sporting injuries of his own. With over 25 years’ experience training, competing in and teaching martial arts he particularly enjoys working with combat athletes and is currently part of the medical team for the British and English Karate Federations with athletes competing at national and international level.
In addition to sports injuries, James is particularly interested in the contribution Osteopathy can make to the identification and management of respiratory and rheumatic conditions. He feels passionately about the role of Osteopathy in preventative medicine and promoting the power of movement for health, happiness and longevity.
