“David's work was an essential part of keeping me 'on the road' and functioning to my potential during the years I was performing on the highest stage in sport. I could not have achieved this without his ability to spot and treat problems early and effectively. His common sense approach and kind nature makes him a truly talented practitioner - I would recommend him to anyone.”–Kate Allenby MBE, Modern Pentathlete, Olympic Bronze Medallist, Sydney 2000
"I just wanted to say thank you for today. Although I have had ergonomics training before, it was just a group session without the one –to-one assessment and had nowhere near the impact of today. David was very good at looking at what I was doing and attempting to stop some of the pains I have been having in my back. His attention was excellent so thanks again." –Abenaa Afari, Coin Street Builders
