With over 20 years of movement experience as a professional dancer, Dan has a passion for all things movement-based, and has developed a keen sensibility of touch through working with people in different physical capacities and environments. Consequently, he has gained a knowledgeable understanding and intuition of reading the body in motion, identifying movement, behavioural, and compensatory patterns.
His intimate relationship to movement, work and study awoke deep respect and curiosity for the human body. He is fascinated by and continually developing a keen eye and practice on the essential role that movement, nutrition, behaviour and perception play in promoting health and well-being, and the balance between stress, resilience and recovery. This fascination led him to explore the prevention, treatment and management of chronic pain and injury.
A passion for helping people out of pain drives his growth and development in the fields of Advanced Clinical Massage, Sports Massage, Dry Needling, Nutrition Coaching and rehabilitation through movement.
He places awareness on and has the utmost respect for pain's complexity and how it affects people differently. Working with compassion and empathy, he tailors his treatment together with his clients to meet their particular needs and goals, using a comprehensive theoretical knowledge base coupled with application specificity. Dan believes in the influence of integral relationships and support in managing pain and injury, and aims to provide ongoing support to his clients long after leaving the treatment table.
Dan will return in September to the University College Of Osteopathy in London, for the second year of a five year Master's degree in Osteopathy.

It was a great experience and Daniel is doing a great job. Had 90 minutes of full relaxation and also got some very helpful advice to work on my posture problems. Will definitely come back and can highly recommend to come here for a nice time out!L. Franz - Google Review 90 Minute Relaxation Massage
I saw Danny for a pain in my hip. Whilst in my first session Danny noticed that my hip was out of alignment and that I was limping. He corrected the alignment and together with this and the exercises he showed me I've had no problems with it since then. Would highly recommend Danny, he definitely knows his profession and is very passionate about it.
I am a dancer and I developed a sharp pain in my knee which really affected me, I had to take some time away from dancing as I physically could not do it, it was extremely painful. My GP told me to go to the hospital to see a physiotherapist, I had many appointments at the hospital for months and nothing worked. I was really scared I was going to have to give up dancing, however, my dance teacher told me about Dan. I had 2 or 3 sessions with Dan before I felt my knee getting better. He gave me movements to follow which I could easily practice at home. Dan is so friendly and he is absolutely amazing at what he does! Since Dan helped me I have had absolutely no problems with my knee at all. I can’t thank Dan enough for what he has done for me.
As an ex professional dancer I have had alot of treatment from alot of therapists over the past 15 years. I am picky about who I work with and Dan has most definitely been the most effective and efficient therapist I have worked with to date. My treatment has been hugely beneficial and I really felt listened to and heard before the treatment started, as for the treatment itself I would say that Dan was like a human MRI. He was able to accurately pin point the problem areas and found the route cause of my pain within our first session. I left my treatments feeling much better physically but also left with the confidence that my pain would not last much longer with the hands on treatment and extra exercises I received from Dan. To finish off I would recommend Dan's services so highly that I will not be looking for a new therapist as he moves away, I will now be traveling to see him (5-6 hour round trip) when necessary.
