Jane Alexander - Telegraph

"My (zero balancing) session was heavenly. I found myself in an almost meditative state and came off the couch feeling different – lighter, easier in my body and preternaturally calm in my mind. Best of all, as I walked away from Walters's house I suddenly realised something had changed. I was no longer limping, no longer in pain. My knee was just fine."

About Chris

Over 20 years of experience helping patients get better

Zero Balancing - 2010

McTimoney College of Chiropractic - 1999

Sports Massage - 1995

Having worked with the McTimoney technique, as taught to me at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic, Chris realised that his patients physical problems often had emotional and/or psychological elements to them and chose to move away from Chiropractic. Around this time Chris was introduced to Zero Balancing which addresses both the energetic and structural aspects of the human body. This truly original therapy created US Osteopathic Physician, Acupuncturist and Rolfer Dr Fritz Smith, MD was the perfect vehicle to treat both mind and body.

Chris has found that, by combining this therapy with his knowledge of the McTimoney technique, patients recover faster and have longer lasting benefits.

"By treating body, mind and spirit, this is a truly holistic treatment, which would be difficult for someone only qualified in one discipline to achieve."

Chris is fully qualified and experienced in the McTimoney technique, qualified sports masseur and  Zero Balancer and is fully insured. Chris is also a third degree black belt in Lau Gar Kung Fu and a red belt in Dian Xue (Dim Mak) and is one of the few people in the world that is allowed to teach this system.

Chris has been a keen sportsman for over 35 years and uses his technique to treat sports injuries too.
