Daniel is an Osteopath and Personal Trainer with a background in Biomechanics, Strength & Conditioning and Exercise Rehabilitation. 

 

Daniel adopts a Holistic view of the body, he believes that all systems are interrelated and therefore we must go beyond the presenting symptom or pain if we are to create lasting change.
