SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPISTS
Andre has been a keen sportsman since his younger years and like many others experienced a number of injuries playing rugby in particular. Whilst in Oman in 1994, Andre developed serious problems with his lower back and was hospitalised and in traction for 2 weeks.
When Andre returned to the UK he sought medical advice and after numerous treatments and medication it became clear that he would need to have surgery. Andre was referred to an orthopaedic surgeon and after further investigation underwent surgery to fuse his lower spine in 2000. Fortunately the operation was a success and as a result his life changed for the better.
It was because of this experience that Andre made the decision to re-train as a Sports and Remedial Therapist in 2002. After all the years of being in discomfort and pain he wanted to make a difference by helping people recover from their own injuries.
During the last 15 years Andre has treated clients of all ages and with many different kinds of injuries across London. Andre is passionate about making sure his clients get the best massage treatment to enable them to lead fuller and more active lives, whether to recover from a sport injury, release stress or for complete relaxation.
“Jana works from her home, and I walked in to a peaceful and gorgeous candle-lit area which smelt divine. Jana gave me an eyelash and eyebrow tint plus a lovely hand massage too.

STEVE DELL HYPNOTHERAPY
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an enjoyable, non-invasive therapy that works by recreating the REM state (the condition where our natural healing processes go to work), quietening the mind and allowing new, healthy patterns of behaviour to grow, in place of the negative and possibly harmful patterns and habits that have prompted you to seek help.
Going into a trance state is a very easy and completely natural process. We all do it many times a day, without realising. But in a controlled, consulting-room setting, where you’ll feel safe and supported, it has a profound and beneficial affect on your stress levels, your anxiety as well as your sleep-patterns.
Steve can help your: Anxiety, Depression (including Postnatal Depression), Anger, Stress, Low Self-Esteem, Confidence, Sports-Performance, Stage-Fright, Public- Speaking fears and Weight Issues, as well as Phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and giving up Smoking.
Whatever the issues, over time, the removing of any bad habits and negative patterns frees up so much spare capacity in the brain that the knock on effect will be a wonderful increase in optimism, energy and focus.
“I found my sessions with Steve to be hugely helpful. Steve is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Prior to our first session, Steve explained how hypnotherapy works and what our sessions will be be like. His experience allowed him to create sessions specific to my issues.
Under hypnosis (which is unbelievably relaxing) Steve guided me through a process to turn my negative emotions and limiting values into positive learning experiences. I found the suggestions that he made to be immediately beneficial. I feel calmer and I can notice changes daily in the way I get along with people. I feel that my confidence will continue to increase. Thank you once again Steve!“

THE BACKBONE – MUSWELL HILL OSTEOPATHS
Osteopaths look at the body as a whole to diagnose and treat imbalances in the musculoskeletal system. By applying techniques to reduce muscle tightness and improve joint mobility, the body is able to function more efficiently and with less discomfort. Osteopaths recognise that every individual’s symptoms are unique and treatment is tailored specifically to each person.
Osteopathy is beneficial not only for back and neck problems but also for general muscle aches, joint pain, sports injuries, whiplash and repetitive strain injuries to name a few. If you are unsure whether osteopathy is suitable for you or if you have questions, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Backbone if you need an osteopath, Ayse has treated me and I was extremely impressed by her professionalism, the extent of her knowledge and practice (she is qualified not only in osteopathy and acupuncture (which she used on me), but she has also attended chiropractor and physiotherapist courses too. She has amazing strength for a small woman! My back felt really good after my treatment with her.“
David Wales MSc BSc(Hons) MCSP HCPC
Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, HCPC Physiotherapy Prescriber
Member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (No 60309)
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Registered (PH54564)
“I can wholeheartedly recommend David Wales as a physiotherapist. I consulted him after 3 months of pain and numbness in my back, buttock and leg. He was really great and I came out feeling a whole lot fitter than when I went in. He did a thorough assessment through listening to my history, asking questions, observing my movements and examination. He deciphered my MRI report for me, explaining the reasons for my ongoing symptoms. He then used gentle manipulation, followed by a dry needle into a troublesome muscle, which together considerably reduced my symptoms and increased my mobility.“
