Chris graduated from Cardiff Institute in 1995 with a degree in Sport and Human Movement Studies and has completed the BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy (the only one of its kind in the UK). Chris is a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM) now recognised as the Institute for Soft Tissue Therapists since 2010 because of developments made in the industry. He is trained as a 'Rock Doc' to use Functional Movement Tape as delivered by Rocktape.
Chris has played county-level and club hockey for Torbay, achieved a Bronze medal in 4x100m Relay BUSA Athletics championships whilst at university and has since successfully completed 4 London Marathons.
Alongside his passion for helping rehabilitate athletes and providing pitch-side support for Ivybridge, Paignton and Newton Abbot rugby clubs, Chris is also acutely aware of the importance of treating minor and chronic injuries that impact on an individual's well-being, whether they are involved in sport or not. From this evolved the clinic's mission statement: "movement, performance and pain-free living".
