Adam is a French osteopath who graduated from the University College of Osteopathy (formerly known as British School of Osteopathy) with a Masters in Osteopathy. Originally from Paris, he started studying in the south of France in Nice at the Atman Osteopathic Campus before deciding to obtain an international qualification by moving to London to continue and finish his Masters.

He has treated and participated in the rehab of a diverse range of athletes, from Olympians to elite football, rugby players, but also American football.

The body functions as a unit, and therefore Adam aims to address it holistically, using a various range of skills (spinal mobilisations, soft tissue, dry needling), and taking into consideration every aspect of it, from the biomechanics to the psychology of the patient.
Adam believes strongly in the patient-osteopath trust relationship being a key element on the journey to optimal health.

Adam attaches great importance to the patient and their role in the treatment process, making them a key and active actor in their recovery.

Valerie Fry

I can’t say enough about the professionalism and through care both Millie and Julia have given me. They each have asked all of the right questions, with Julia correctly diagnosing where two other Physios and trainers have failed me. They each have also followed up with me between sessions.
I’m very optimistic about my progress under their care. The facility is very nice, as is the woman’s loo. All around great experience!”

David Woodfield

I’ve had a few physios over the years & rarely found someone who I think ‘gets’ it. Laura is the exception – she’s been able to pinpoint and explain my injuries eerily well from day 1! I’d go out of my way to be treated by her if needed.”

Donal Moran

“Excellent service and attention to individual needs and requirements from the team at Purus, Mark Hokan in particular. Very knowledgeable and has helped me stay injury free and on track during heavy training segments for a number of marathons now. Highly recommended.”
