Hi, my name is James, I am a recent graduate from Swansea University with a 2:1 master’s degree in osteopathy. I am fluent in both English and Welsh.
As a semi-professional rugby player for Neath RFC, I have learned a lot about rehabilitating injuries. Whether you have postural, occupational, acute, chronic or sports-related pain, contact Swansea Body Kinetics today and find out how I can help you.
More About James
During my treatment sessions I take a super detailed case history to get all the background of your problem, I then examine you to see how the body is working (or not working!) together. Once I have an idea about what is going on I take the time to explain to you what I feel the problem is. Research suggests (and I would agree!) that the more people understand about their problems, the less trapped and concerned they feel about it.
My treatments consist of a mix of techniques depending on your individual situation, these may include massage, manipulation, stretching, muscle release, dry needling/acupuncture, and exercise advice in order to help you get better. One of my favourite things about osteopathy is the emphasis on an individualised treatment plan just for you. Even though you might have the same injury as someone else, your treatment often needs to be quite different!
Why choose James?
As a dedicated rugby player, who has been playing from 8 years old, I have always been interested in how the human body works. It is a fascination that was amplified because of playing a high impact sport and experiencing first-hand the effects it has had on my body. It made me realise how important it is to maintain your body through stretching, exercises and rehabilitation. This is the driving factor in why I wanted to become an osteopath.
I studied Osteopathy for four years at Swansea University, graduating in July 2019 with a 2:1 masters degree.
I was brought up in the Swansea valley and educated through the Welsh medium at Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera. This makes me fluent in both English and Welsh languages. For those that feel more comfortable conversing in Welsh, mae gennych chi’r cyfle i archebu apwyntiad gyda fi.
Osteopaths use an array of techniques to treat our patients which include primarily soft tissue techniques, mobilisations, and manipulations (where you may commonly hear a clicking noise).
I am very proud and happy to be a member of the Osteopathy team here at Swansea Body kinetics. If you have any questions or inquiries don’t hesitate to get in contact with us!
