Welcome to The Fibro Guy

Due to my own personal experience of chronic pain and years of working with those with lifelong health conditions, I know that I can support those even with the more severe mobility and health conditions; supporting people to regain a more active and pain-free lifestyle..

  • Lauren, who suffers from Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, went from dislocating multiple times a day and having practically immobile hips to surfing in Mexico and wearing high heels again

 

  • Cheryl lost her life for over 15 years to fibromyalgia and cluster-tic; spending most of her days in bed, riddled with pain. She's now fighting back - boxing, circuit training and spending time with her family out of the house. 

 

  • Linda fell on a tent peg, injuring her coccyx and spent many months unable to walk or sleep properly. Today she is now back at work full time and practically pain-free. 

 

  • Angela couldn't walk 100 meters without hip and knee pain caused by her fibromyalgia. Today she is doing shuttle runs in the gym . 

 

  • Ellie suffered from fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome so badly that it caused her to nearly drop out of University. After working together, she is able to get through each and every single day and is on her way to earning her degree.

The individual programme was created by myself, many years ago. Over the years, my client base has expanded and branched into many conditions, so the programme has evolved. The programme is a generic framework based on the one I used to help myself. However, it is adapted to the individual, dependent on several factors, including how they respond to the previous sessions. There is a considerable educational element to it, along with physical activity. I am not a fan of manual therapy, as it encourages people to rely on someone else to provide only temporary pain relief. So, during your time training, we will be preparing you to be able to maintain results yourself after you leave. Most people can complete the programme in 8 weeks, with many going from relying on crutches, being in constant pain and fatigue, to returning to work. If, however, you feel you would like to continue sessions after 8 weeks that is fine. There are many clients that stay for months, simply because they want to keep getting stronger or simply enjoy the sessions. Ultimately though, my aim is to get you into the studio, educate you, show you what you need to do to maintain the results we achieve together and for you to be able to go off and live your life.
