As a GP with experience and interest in rheumatology, trauma and already convinced by the benefits of soft tissue techniques, it was inevitable as an aging footballer that I would sooner or later need some treatment.
Having been treated by Sylvan I have been impressed by his knowledge, his approach with clients and his techniques. Most importantly of course, I have also been delighted with the results. He has enabled me to continue playing three times a week, and still able to compete in International football tournaments twice a year.
I anticipate that we will continue to meet for a good few years to come. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I started playing badminton at my local youth club from the age of 13. I continued playing into adulthood and have become a good club standard player. On reaching 40, I started entering veteran’s competitions and representing my county in the veteran’s category. When I turned 60 I entered the English nationals and was fortunate enough to win. I then entered the European veteran’s tournament and exceeded all expectations. I was the runner up in this event. Soon afterwards I started having problems with my knee, which kept seizing up and I eventually went to the doctors where I had a scan and arthroscopy. These didn’t help the situation at all. After 18 months of not playing badminton I got to hear about a physiotherapist called Sylvan Richardson and, even though it was an hour’s travel (3 hour round trip including treatment,) I still visited most weeks and Sylvan has now managed to get me back playing badminton, county matches and tournaments. I am playing in the world championships in Turkey later this year, which is an achievement in itself as only 4 people from each country are allowed to play in each event. I can honestly say without Sylvan’s treatment my badminton days would be over. Even though I only play at an amateur level badminton is a big part of my life and I cannot thank Sylvan enough for extending my career.
Amazing day, the service was fantastic, we will surely return to experience it again, highly recommended. Steven & Alex Gerrard

After being recommended to see Sylvan I would certainly not only come back but recommend to others. He knew what was wrong and has a very good feel of the muscles.
Cannot recommend Sylvan's massages enough! His knowledge of the myofascial system is amazing and he leaves no stone unturned to find the root of the problem. I continue to recommend him to my patients and friends.
