He enjoys using his professional knowledge and skill to help his clients improve their health and fitness so that they can enjoy life to the full.

Werner is able to treat a wide range of problems, ranging from sports injuries to chronic conditions, and everything in-between. Throughout your treatment he will work with you to reach your goal, whether that is to return to sport after injury, improve your flexibility, relieve the aches and pains associated with your occupation or to work on an acute or chronic ailment. Werner believes that prevention is better than cure and encourages all his clients to value their health and make a constant effort to keep well. In short, he helps them to help themselves.
Werner completed his osteopathic training at Oxford Brookes University and his sports massage training with ProActive Training.

Werner sustained many injuries in his sporting career and can fully appreciate the impact that this can have on the body and mind. Werner treats everyone with respect and recognises that each individual is different and requires personal attention suited to their needs. Some clients require intense treatment for a relatively short time, such as an athlete who has suffered an acute injury; other clients, wishing to maintain fitness and agility, may attend on a weekly basis. Werner tries to help everyone as best he can and he takes pride in the fact that he has regular clients who value his efforts to keep them healthy, relaxed and confident.
