“John’s knowledge of running biomechanics is second to none. The advice that he gave me not only made me run with greater efficiency but also allowed me to consistently over perform in terms of speed and time. Three sessions with John has transformed my running style and more importantly; it has made it fun again. I recommend John without any doubt or hesitation.”
“I took my 10 year old daughter to see John after she complained of significant pain when she walked. My daughter was clearly concerned but John put Ruby at her ease immediately. He really listened and he clearly understood exactly what she was saying. He gave her some very good advice and talked her through all the things she could do to help to improve her problem, including the right type of shoes and trainers to wear and easy exercises that she could do every day. I left feeling relieved and within a couple of days, Ruby’s pain was already drastically reduced. I would not hesitate to recommend John’s clinic to anyone who has concerns about their children.”
