Born in Dublin, Ireland, Andy has been working in health and fitness for over 10 years. His wide-ranging Physiotherapy experience includes working with sports teams and international hospitals in the UK, Ireland and Vietnam.
Andy believes in a holistic approach to injury healing and pain, which is driven by his comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology. He is particularly interested in the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries and is dedicated to the long-term health of his clients.
He has a strong anatomical and biomechanical background, which underpins his detailed analysis of movement. This guides his integrative, evidence-based, exercise and manual therapy approach, in the treatment of injuries, pain and movement dysfunctions.
Andy has a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy from the University of East Anglia and a Bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise Rehabilitation from Middlesex University in London. Additionally, Andy has extensive experience as a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor, as well as gaining qualifications in health and fitness.
