Alan was recommended to me by staff at the Bristol Natural Health Centre. I have had for some years now problems with food allergies, IBS and Candida. This was and is being treated by Christine Welch at Bristol Natural Health Centre. However, I developed a problem with the top of my left arm. It was suggested that I see Alan to see if he could help. My problem was not the result of a sports injury, so no trauma was presented. Alan was not phased by this. There was some manipulation of my arm, which was expected, but what was not expected was the treatment using smell and sound. The issue with my arm is still being worked on but what is remarkable is the change to my food allergies. After 3 sessions with Alan I no longer have any allergies (the list of food groups was extensive). This treatment was not accidental, Alan fully expected his treatment to solve these problems. Anyone suffering from these types of issues will know how much it rules your life and will understand how amazingly liberating it is to be able to eat freely.

As a keen golfer with an intermittent back problem over the last couple of years, I have had recommended to me and seen many physiotherapists without much success of being pain free. In October 2014 I went to see Alan. I took Alan's advice regarding exercises and stretches and after just 3 sessions there was a noticeable improvement in my back. I have continued with Alan's advice and am now playing a much improved game of golf, recently resulting in a reduced handicap. I would certainly recommend Alan to anyone looking for a professional therapist.

Having spent the last couple of years being treated by Alan, I feel in the perfect position to comment on his technical ability and professionalism.  Firstly having seen a number of sports physios over the years, Alan's abilities are second to none. His understanding of human anatomy and the nervous system is incredibly comprehensive and I would describe him as "tireless" in his attempt to get to the heart of the issue and get his clients back up on their feet again. I would go as far to say that Alan is more responsible than anyone for keeping me in one piece despite the rigours of a physically demanding job!

I first saw Alan to help treat a nagging knee injury. Within one 30 minute session my knee was markedly improved. Since then I have visited him anytime I have experienced an injury, each time coming away considerably improved if not cured. Due to his work I have also experienced vast improvements in performance, most noticeably a 300% increase in my dead lift.

Alan's unbeatable knowledge of the human body, together with his holistic approach, set him apart from the rest. Not only does he have a life-time of experience and training in sports injuries and recovery, he's also constantly updating his already encyclopaedic skills and knowledge with the very latest, exciting and cutting-edge courses. He's got magic hands, endless sound advice, a wonderfully positive attitude and, after a decade of being looked after by him, I can safely attest that he's nothing short of a genius!

Having had a serious snowboarding injury which disconnected 2 ribs from my spine I began working with Alan to reduce my pain and improve mobility.  At the end of 2012 we started a program of exercises and drills designed to treat the nervous system rather than just the musculature and the results were extraordinary.  Pain reduced to almost nothing and my mobility was soon better than before the injury.  In December 2012 I was in daily pain and struggling to walk easily.  Now, in October 2013 I am hill-running twice a week and am back sport climbing to the 6c grade, almost the same as in my twenties.  Not bad for a 44 year old with a busted back!

I sent my wife with post-operative shoulder pain and Alan sorted it, I sent my Dad with leg pain that had him walking with a stick - not any more!  Alan is a straight-forward and personable professional who communicates in a clear way to leave you feeling informed and motivated to follow his instructions, resulting in tangible benefits.

I have known Alan for approximately 8 years during which time he has treated a wide variety of my injuries sustained while training and competing in many different sports.

He has extensive knowledge and keeps up to date with current research, new theories and treatment so that he can provide his clients with the very best and most recent methods available. He is extremely enthusiastic and not only treats injuries/problems hands on, but he also provides his clients with rehab exercises to do at home.

In addition to seeing Alan for rehab, he has also provided maintenance treatment which has enabled me to maximise my training and prevent injuries occurring. This has allowed me to train and compete at the highest level in my sport. Alan is a friendly, keen, knowledgeable and enthusiastic therapist who I would recommend without reservation to both recreational and elite athletes of all ages.

Since being treated by Alan and following his advice i have gained noticeable strength in the gym along with improved power and stamina in martial arts classes. A few simple exercises and movements l was shown seemed to almost instantly have improved my balance, strength and posture.

Compound exercises such as deadlifts have increased significantly. I added 40KG after a couple of sessions and in 7 months increased my lifts by 110 KG and feel fitter with more power whilst practising martial arts.

I have been a regular client of Alan’s for the past 10 years. As a professional dressage rider it is extremely important that I am physically balanced, supple and in tune with my body. Alan helps maintain this for me and I find him a very positive influence.

8 years ago I took up the sport of Triathlon, ranging from Sprint, Olympic. Half lronman and Full lronman distance.

During this time I have inevitably picked up injuries. Alan has always been able to diagnose the problem very quickly and treat accordingly, he also takes time to give advice as to what I should or shouldn't be doing in order to recover quickly and avoid further injury.

In the last 3 years I have very little time out of training due to injury as I now see Alan as soon as anything doesn't feel right, and he gets to the bottom of it.

l have no problem at all in recommending Alan to others.
