Barrie has had a special relationship to the top London Orchestras over the last 20 years, his expertise in treating Olympic Athletes, Professional Footballers- working on players from QPR, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Chelsea, Spurs, travelling as far as from Grimsby to receive treatment, Pro Boxers at the famous Thomas A Becket has given Barrie a unique insight into biomechanics required in the professional realm, helping many to achieve thier maximum potential.
Barrie has been my osteopath for nearly 20 years. He is an extremely knowledgeable and very perceptive practitioner. He takes the time to talk with you and treats the person rather than just addressing the symptoms. He is also the only osteopath I have seen who actually watches you play to gain a better insight and understanding of the unique physical demands of the performing artist. As a result, in addition to his high quality osteopathic care, he has been able to provide me with an excellent set of exercises to help maintain free movement.
I would thoroughly recommend anyone, especially those with a background
in the professional performing arts, to visit him.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Barrie’s practice. I have been treated by him for over ten years for a variety of dance related injuries and always receive the highest level of professional care. He is always able to identify the root of any problems I am experiencing, and gives effective treatments and helpful advice so that I leave the sessions feeling better both physically and mentally.
He really cares about his patients and gives great advice on maintaining fitness between sessions and I particularly value his support, encouragement and reassurance about my fitness to continue dancing.

Barrie undoubtedly helped me maximise my potential as a competitive cyclist and has both rescued and prolonged my sporting career and restored my wellbeing when threatened by injury or the stress of everyday life.
I have no hesitation in recommending Barrie’s services.
