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.
Andy 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.

I worked with Andy at Perfect Balance for 5-6 months earlier in the year and it was well worth every moment. I had been suffering with shoulder pain from a car accident for 5 years, and having seen multiple practitioners at other clinics I’d pretty much given up hope. Within a couple of months Andy had guided me through progressive exercises and worked on my shoulder enough that I’ve been pain free in that shoulder for about 4 months now, and it’s absolutely amazing to not think about it anymore after so long! Massive quality of life improvement!
