Bruce was introduced to Newmarket in 1997 by an eminent horse trainer having been spotted plying his skills in Dubai. His first Sports Injury and Sports Massage clinic was established in the same year. A need for further education was realised and after a 5 year degree course Bruce graduated from the London School of Osteopathy with a BSc (Honours) in Osteopathy.
Bruce specialises in spinal and sports injury treatments and uses a wide range of S-soft tissue techniques, manipulation, electrotherapy, dry needling & ultrasound. He also has a knowledge of biomechanics and prescribes orthotics.
Human performance has always been a feature of his practice and Bruce has linked this coaching knowledge with the very latest fitness test equipment for athletic endurance sports and weight loss. An appreciation of the interrelationship of the body's systems has led to the introduction of Visceral Osteopathic techniques aimed at improving gut function, nutrition absorption, mood and hormone balance. It is suitable for all patients from the obese to the athlete, irrelevant of age or sex.

Claire joined our team in 2007 and has been a key player in the development of the clinic. Claire's role in the administrative side of the clinic has grown in unison with the patient numbers which have doubled since she first started.
Claire's time is split these days, in the afternoon you will still find her on reception whilst in the morning her IT skills are in full swing dealing with the ever-growing insurance based invoicing and clinical letter writing where she deciphers the therapists' notes and produces immaculate medical communication.
We are very happy to have Claire on our side.

Marcus' early sporting achievements were as a Javelin thrower, becoming National Youth Champion and reaching second place in the AAA National Championships. He then went on to compete at International level in weight lifting.
Like most athletes, Marcus has experienced injuries, however he has used this experience to his benefit when training others to achieve their sporting potential. His methods are exacting and successful. Marcus' very motivational training sessions take place on a 1-1 basis in a private gym.
After suffering a herniated lumbar disc, Bruce needed to find ways of maintaining strength and combining a strong core.
Here are some of the exercises that Marcus has used to achieve Bruce’s aim. Since starting this style of exercise Bruce’s back pain has reduced and he is far more capable of continuing a balanced lifestyle, while continuing with a busy working life managing the practice and keeping up with his very active daughters’ sporting life.

How can Therapy help?
During times of stress, we can all think differently about ourselves and what happens to us. Our thinking can become extreme and unhelpful, which can worsen how we feel. We may then behave in certain ways that can prolong our distress. We can become very critical of ourselves, we can look around at others close to us and misinterpret their behaviour or compare ourselves negatively, and we may even look at our future and be unable to factor in the possibility of things improving.
CBT practitioners help each person identify and change their extreme thinking and unhelpful behaviour. In doing this, the result is often a major improvement in how a person feels and lives.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the recommended therapy by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) for treatment of a range of disorders including:
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a therapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing and unresolved life experiences. This could be a major one incident trauma or an intolerable situation that was on-going. EMDR is rated as being the best method of treatment for traumas and is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the treatment of trauma.
Recent research has also show EMDR to be an effective intervention in the treatment of some anxiety, OCD and depression.
