I've had sports massage before with Mark which was always a huge help, but after months of working from an inadequate... kitchen table and chair my spine admitted defeat and I had to book in for osteopathy. Everything felt incredibly safe in terms of the Covid procedures in place, and Mark really listened to the issues I'd been having and fully assessed the problems before treating them. I left both sessions feeling so much better and there was no pressure to rebook - in fact I was advised to leave it slightly longer than I was intending, which was welcome news! The results have been fantastic and I felt really well looked after both times, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark to anyone who also needs osteopathy after the stresses of 2020 have taken their toll!read more

I have had two appointment with Mark at Purus Osteopathy and Sports Massage, once for a torn pec/shoulder injury, and... the other for a sore thoracic/cervical spinal junction. Both times I have been extremely happy with my experience. Mark is a very insightful, knowledgable, and friendly Osteopath, and I have not just left both sessions feeling better in terms of my ailments, but also feeling more informed about what led to the problems arising, how to avert the problems arising again, and more educated in terms of my own anatomy. I’m always in store for an epiphany, “Eureka” moment at a session with Mark. He’s the man 🙌read more

Purus have helped guide me smoothly through several injuries over the years, back to full health and fitness. i am an... active gym goer, who plays football, swims, and jogs, so free movement is key part of my life, and mental balance too, so i honestly feel lucky to have a relationship with my physiotherapist which is accessible, reliable, and where i am listened to and understood, and the mechanics and history of my body are considered as a whole, which all help me to get back on track with minimal sessions.read more

I have been seeing Mark for over 4 years now, both for injury help and Sports Massage. Unlike many other practitioners,... Mark always listens to the problem and takes a holistic approach to the addressing the issue - considering the site of the problem itself, other contributing factors and my history. Mark is also extremely well connected, so if for any reason he is not able to help with a given injury or feels that additional tests / practitioners could aid recovery, Mark will refer me to the right person. Mark is also great at advising on rehab exercises and helping me to get myself better. Hands down would definitely recommend to everyone 🙂read more

I've come to Mark for quite a few osteopathy sessions and these have helped the tension in my back a lot. Mark is very... knowledgable. I've also come in for some massages with Estivaliz and these have been extreamly relaxing and have also helped alleviate my back pain a lot. Estivaliz also used a range of techniques during the massage sessions, such as acupuncture, osteopath manipulations which made it really unique. It is the best service I've received in London.read more

I was introduced to Mark by my PT and visited him because I was suffering with lower back, shoulder & neck pain. Mark... is super friendly & welcoming, professional & explains his views in detail, which has finally helped me understand what my habits are & how I need to work on them, which for many years of seeing various Osteopaths/Physios was never given to this level before and hence my pain continued. Mark is not about short term pain relief, he helps you understand & puts a program in place so that you can improve and it can be sustainable. I have seen Mark once in person & another time online & both times have exceeded expectation. After two days of my online consultation, my pain was gone, not just in my lower back but my shoulder and neck too. I couldn't believe it! My PT added Mark's recommended exercises to my program and now my training has gone to the next level because I can execute moves without pain that I couldn't before. I follow Mark's program to prevent pain & am looking forward to continuing to move without pain in my daily life and activities I love such as strength & conditioning training, yoga & running. So grateful and cannot recommend Mark enough! Thank you Mark!read more

Mark is a first class professional. I have been suffering from back issues for years now and Mark has managed to help... me sort it out. His ability to diagnose and fix the areas that have been causing me pain is uncanny. He had great advice of how to strengthen my back to resolve the issue in the longterm. I selected Mark because of his reviews. I can assure you that if you also select him you will not regret it.read more

I've been going to Purus for a decade. Mark and his team are a fundamental part of my training. Mark has the ability to... look at the whole picture of what I bring into the treatment room on any given day, he uses this ability to offer an exemplary service that supports my body and mind. He provides practical guidance for how I can continue to train safely in the context of having had 6 knee operations; he is extremely talented and remains up to date with the latest techniques and research. Most of all, it's Mark's approach and personable, relatable manner of working that sets him (and his team!) apart from others. I highly recommend going to Purus!read more

I have been working with Mark for the last 2 years and cannot recommend him and Purus highly enough. Mark's in-depth... knowledge base and ability to pin point issues is what really sets him apart. He correctly views the body as one system and does not fixate on the issue alone, as he works he is constantly joining the dots and helping clients to understand the all important WHY. I refer all my students to Purus for Osteo/physio and soft tissue work as part of the wider programme at Lift: The Movement and would not refer them anywhere else. keep up the good work Mark!read more

I've gone to Purus several times for massages and treatments when I've incurred an injury and it has always been a... great experience. Most recently I had inflammation in the ham string tendon which Laura & Andrea treated me for. I'm a spin instructor so it was important that I got help for this asap. Purus got me in straight away and after just one treatment I felt an improvement. They're also just great people, they listen, are helpful and super knowledgeable.read more

The treatment comprised of sports massages and detailed exercises to do at home, all of which focused on improving the movement of the joint and strengthening of the muscles after a prolonged injury.read more

Mark is the best Osteopath in London FACT. His service and knowledge is on another level to others. His application of... training knowledge is outstanding. I send all my clients to Mark for a check up. Every client comments back to me on what a great guy he is and they have booked in again. Due to being so busy, please don’t be surprised if you have to wait two-four weeks to see him. It’s worth the wait.read more

Couldn’t have been more pleased with my experience here, worth every penny! Had knee pain for 3 years after training... for a marathon, which meant I could hardly even walk. After many physio appointments both Nhs and private, no one could work out the problem until I saw Mark from Purus in Covent Garden. I’m now back to normal self, Thankyou so much Mark!!!read more

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.”

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.”

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!”
