Whatever the cause of pain....

be it back pain, sciatica, nerve compression, RSI, whiplash etc, it is a terrible thing to endure and it can be extremely worrying.  Often a person can feel very isolated, unsure of where to turn next and if they will ever be pain free.


Pain, either very acute bouts or chronic, has a real affect on a person's quality of life, it not only affects the person in question through stress, lack of sleep, debilitation etc but it also affects their family.  Many people try all kinds of treatments but to no avail, at Back in Step we offer an alternative therapy to chiropractic, osteopathy, physiotherapy or surgery.


Amatsu Therapy is a soft tissue body alignment, there are no force corrections or thrust manipulations, we utilise muscles and ligaments to help re-align the body, which in turn allows for correct movement, posture and healing, the body is treat as a whole unit, not a series of separate parts.


Please see the rest of the site for more information on Amatsu and contact details.


"After 20 years of visits to Physiotherapists , Osteopaths and Sports Scientists with a back problem that they were unable to pinpoint or successfully treat, I decided to visit John on the recommendation of a friend. I went in with an open mind and no expectations, on my first visit he located the source of that problem and several others that I had "learned to live with" and began to successfully treat the issues on my first session. I walked out  with a feeling of relief in my upper back so great that I was genuinely amazed, this had been going on so long I hadn't realised how my back should feel. I cant recommend his treatment highly enough."
