    About BEN

    Ben originally worked in theatre, performed as a stand up comic and wrote for television. However, during this time, Ben studied Tai Chi and in 2000 was given the opportunity to undertake a teacher training. It was then that Ben began his new career, teaching its exercise and restorative principles, internationally.

    He continued his studies by training as a physiotherapist, qualifying in 2007 with first class honors. After spending several years in the NHS, Ben decided to specialize in muscloskeletal treatment. This led him to undertake a post graduate course with NLSSM in 2015, which gave him the motivation to start his own practice.

    Ben now runs a physiotherapy and massage practice treating people from all kinds of backgrounds from the indolent to individuals in elite sports and dance.
