Arwel’s interest in manual therapy began after receiving a number of treatments as a young sportsman. Picking up lower back, shoulder, and hamstring injuries but not wanting to take a day away from playing for his teams he received a number of treatments from a variety of therapists. As a youngster he was amazed people could understand the bodies anatomy and physiology enough to optimize the recovery process and get people back doing what they love quicker. At this point he knew he wanted to follow a similar path and help others do what they love. After studying his A levels he immediately went to the British College of Osteopathic Medicine to study Osteopathy.
His approach to treating patients is simple making things less painful using hands-on techniques and giving patients advice and exercise that is fun and applicable to the individual that gradual promotes stronger more mobile people. As well as treating patients as an osteopath he enjoys educating people in health & wellbeing, whilst encouraging people to be more proactive and exploratory in a fun and playful manner. Arwel enjoys keeping active, playing rugby for the last 10 years, and starting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the last 6 months.
Arwel has spent a lot of time reading and researching the latest advances in pain science, rehabilitation, prehabilitation/ injury mitigation and movement, integrating this into his treatments. He hopes to spark others interests in keeping their body and mind healthy by taking small steps in a timely manner to improve their lifestyle, instead of falling into the easy, immobile, and unhealthy lifestyles many of us live.
Whether it is manual or physical therapy, a rehabilitations plan, or an injury mitigation plan that is individualized to you Arwel will be able to provide this whilst keeping the process fun, enjoyable and goal orientated.
Arwel is available as an Osteopath and Sports Massage Therapist at our Maidstone Clinic
