Richard Apps

I am a fully qualified Sports Therapist & Personal Trainer and like other like-minded experts, I‘ve learned to share my experience through a combination of doing and education.

I’m a passionate healer with an alternative approach, and I’m dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, emotional, and spiritual transitions in the most efficient and transformative way possible.

My Career started in the mid 1980's where I studied nutrition and trained as a chef. After 5 years of travelling and working in countries like Australia, I returned to the UK, it was soon after this I realised that I wanted to pursue a new career path through my love of sport. 

Over the next 15 years I retrained and worked as a duty manager, fitness instructor and swimming coach then going on to manage private Fitness Clubs and Leisure Centres including Ponds Forge International Sports Centre

Up until 2006 I also trained hard and competed around the world in Lifeguarding Competitions. I captained the British Team and won medals at National, European, Commonwealth and World levels even breaking a world record in the process. These years were fantastic and they taught me self discipline on how to get the best out of your body.

They also provided me with a thirst for more knowledge on how the body works and more importantly how to repair the body when injured.

As my body got older and training got harder I visited many specialists and whilst most treatments did help (some better than others) it was the deep oscillation treatment which really stood out for me and was the trigger for me to want to study and eventually become qualified to administer this fantastic therapy. My only regret is I didn't discover it sooner when I was competing at my prime.
