“Over twenty years of trying many forms of treatment and advice, I have only come across two therapists who have made a miraculous difference to recurring back pain and ruptured discs. Last year was the worst onset I had experienced and was unable to sleep, sit or walk without agonizing shooting pains across my leg, foot and shoulders.

To reiterate… in twenty years I have tried many osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists, acupuncture therapists, reiki therapists, massage, bowen therapists, homeopathy, different chairs, different cars, different mattresses, pilates, yoga, and last (and probably least) – the NHS…. ‘that’s life – have some painkillers and anti-depressants’

I can not thank Richard enough for the unbelievable difference he has made. My pain is gone and I have also learned from Richard how to make sure that this time it stays gone!

Richard - you are a genius! Thank you so much”

“Active Therapy has and continues to play a key part of my training and progress, not just pre- or post- competition but all year round.

If it wasn’t for the high level of professional knowledge and experience I may not have progressed as well in the short time I have been training.

I always recommend Active Therapy to anyone as I know he will put 100% into helping them.”
