At Barefoot we are the experts at solving your unique pain puzzle.
Whether you want to compete in high-performance sports or simply enjoy everyday activities pain-free, we are committed to helping you achieve a full recovery and get you back to a pain-free active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
At Barefoot we are the experts at solving your unique pain puzzle. We use science-based treatments underpinned by expert clinical reasoning gained from years of experience and further learning to provide an accurate diagnosis and find a solution to a variety of conditions. From long-standing pain, sports injuries to all manner of aches and niggles.
Clients trust us to deliver a thorough detailed assessment and an accurate diagnosis with a personalised treatment and management plan. This means our appointments are typically longer than most clinics as we would rather see you for a longer session than more frequent, albeit shorter sessions. The extra time allows for a more thorough treatment session and ensures that you are on the right track to recovery.

Clinical Lead and Owner
James is a specialist MSK and sports physiotherapist with over 20 years of experience across a variety of sectors including NHS, Sport, Occupational Health and ergonomics and a number of private settings. He has worked in elite and professional sport and has a special interest in Crossfit and running injuries as well as chronic pain conditions.
James has extensive post-graduate training in an extended range of techniques and treatment approaches. His passion for the use of evidence-based practice and commitment to helping people overcome pain and injury in the long term, rather than temporary quick fixes, gimmicks and short term ‘fool’s gold’ led to forging his own path with Barefoot Physio. A philosophy born out of the desire to depart from a conveyor belt fashion of high patient turnover, choosing quality over quantity. James developed a reputation for being able to help where previous treatments failed. His services soon became sought after enough to relocate to a bespoke facility and evolve barefoot to become a holistic multidisciplinary clinic.
As an ex-elite athlete, Jake has played at international levels for both rugby and water-polo. Due to his previous career in sport Jake has racked up a vast number of injuries from dislocations, ligament and muscle tears, overuse/repetitive strain injuries, lower back pain and more. This led Jake into the world of physiotherapy and his passion for helping people with their pain and injuries. His personal experience of three knee operations has also given him a deeper level of understanding when it comes to the treatment and management of pain and injuries.
Jake studied at King’s College London, one of the top 20 universities in the world, where he was taught by some of the leading researchers in the field of physiotherapy. Here he gained a huge array of experience and a large amount of exposure in some of the leading hospitals in the country and world during his studies and career.
Jake has worked within the NHS, sporting and private physiotherapy settings gaining a vast depth of knowledge building on his foundation as a Human Biologist.
