Since an early age I’ve been interested in health, which initially led me to explore Medicine and then I settled on a career in the Pharmaceutical Industry. It didn't satisfy me anyway near enough.
Luckily, after an acute back injury, I saw a chiropractor and I’ve never looked back. Amazed by the improvements in my pain, I decided to follow my heart and train as a chiropractor.
I worked as a "traditional osseous" chiropractor for a number of years, and then a colleague performed NSA on me (the approach I now use), and my world changed overnight. The simple, gentle approach erased my back pain and gave me the best night’s sleep I’d had in years. I was fascinated by how much better I felt, when my colleague had done so little to me with so little force.
A few months later, I had the opportunity to train in NSA. It felt like the opportunity I had been waiting for, to make the biggest difference to the lives of my clients with the innovative approach. The rest, as they say, is history.

I came to NSA from an unconventional route. My interest as young man was spiritualism. After exploring meditation in my teens, in my early 20’s I fulfilled my dream of becoming a practising Buddhist and teacher of Buddhism and meditation, after moving to Manchester and joining a Buddhist order.
Despite helping the Manchester Buddhist Centre grow into one of the largest inner city Buddhist centres in Europe, I felt I could do more to encourage people to achieve the life they desired and not simply ‘cope’ with their hectic busy lifestyles.
At the same time, I was suffering from a serious Achilles tendon injury that surgery, physiotherapy and standard chiropractic care couldn’t completely heal. Doctors repeatedly told me “it’s just one of those things, live with it”, but for me, this wasn’t enough. I believed my body was capable of more.
And that’s when I discovered NSA. After my wife performed NSA on me, I no longer had inflammation, imbalance, or pain. Despite years of suffering, I have even managed to complete a marathon at the age of 46 – and all because of the healing benefits of NSA chiropractic care.
That’s why I love NSA – because it allows people to fulfil their full potential, awaken their true being and enjoy the thriving life they’ve always wanted.
So my personal experience of NSA inspired me to train as a chiropractor so that I could help others to benefit from this unique approach, and the rest I guess is history…
