    Rehabilitation

    Whether recovering from a serious injury, surgery or just experiencing some aches & pains, Max is dedicated to making sure to restore and further improve one's physical health through strength, conditioning and mobility with an overall aim to achieve optimal function, wellbeing and quality of life for everyone that he sees.

    Osteopathy

    Osteopathy is a holistic manual therapy designed to understand and then treat the root cause of your pain and dysfunction. Here, Max will draw on a diverse range of treatment techniques such as joint mobilisation and manipulation, soft tissue techniques, acupuncture and k-taping.

Osteopath & Performance and Rehabilitation Coach

M.Ost ND DO

I have recently completed my Master's degree in Osteopathic medicine at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) and have started working as an Osteopath in Hertfordshire.

 

I qualified as a Level 3 Personal Trainer in Melbourne, Australia in 2011 and then gained my Level 5 Sports Massage Therapist qualification in London, UK in 2016.  During this time, I have helped a variety of individuals recover from injuries and return to their daily lives or competitive sport pain free, by restoring function and improving athletic performance.

 

Alongside exercise rehabilitation, I primarily offer Osteopathy as a complementary service to address pain, dysfunction and to improve performance through a customised and comprehensive strength, fitness and rehabilitation programme.

 

Through this unique skill set, I am able to provide patients with beneficial diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation programmes for a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and complaints.

 

Outside of my Master’s degree, I have spent the last ten years learning from industry leaders in the fields of strength and conditioning, body composition, exercise rehabilitation for shoulder and lower back pain and pain management. I have helped all kinds of individuals, ranging from everyday professionals experiencing aches and pains and various illnesses, to competitive athletes suffering from serious injuries. My aim is to help all clients by using effective treatment and rehabilitation to improve function and performance.

 

I strive to constantly update and improve my knowledge and understanding through continual professional development in order to be at the forefront of the industry and provide an unparalleled service of excellence for all of my patients. I hope in the future to take part in courses within the fields of musculoskeletal and sports medicine to better my knowledge and skill set.

 

I hope to meet you very soon.

 

Best Wishes,

Max Manlay

I hadn't exercised for a few months and so was quite apprehensive about what to expect. From the beginning Max put me right at ease with his professional yet personable attitude towards personal training. He has constantly kept me motivated to achieve the goals we set in the initial consultation and seeing and actually feeling these results has been incredible. I really feel like I am still improving in each session I go to and I actually look forward to working out - something I never thought I would say!

Not only does Max give very clear and thorough guidance as to how to carry out each exercise but he also gives sound knowledge by explaining the particular muscles and parts of the body we are working on. Max's passion for personal training is absolutely evident in every one of his sessions and I feel this has played a vital part in helping me achieve the results I have wanted for so long. I look forward to every training session with Max and I would not hesitate to recommend his as a personal trainer to anyone.

I’ve been training with Max for nearly 9 months now. I started the sessions to just get toned up for a holiday but it has become a weekly commitment now. Max has pushed me further than I expected with his knowledge of nutrition and specific exercises to hit my goals.. My only complaint is I don’t have the time to get in any more sessions with Max.

Being a photographer, I need to bend down in awkward positions for sometimes long periods of time, over the years it has become painful and even not possible to do. I, until 5 months ago came to Max riddled with pains aches all over my body, especially my shoulder, lower back and right knee.

Max told me why this was using scientific but not intimating language and taught me how to move properly but more impressively related this to my lifestyle and job so going back to work I am now pain free and more active than before, clients are now shocked that I can take pictures in quite awkward positions at my age! Thanks Max!

Having to look after 3 children and gradually seeing my body and health decline over the years, I always took every opportunity to use the excuse of children as to why. Enter Max... He educated me on the importance of health and how children and a busy lifestyle should not block a healthy and active life, it is a barrier sure, and we need to overcome it.

He helped me balance looking after the kids, the house, my friends and other family while eating healthily and what that truly means and exercising in a way where I can reach my goals and it staying interesting and even incorporating my kids to make it fun for them as it's more important to show them what leading a healthy and active lifestyle truly feels like. I owe everything to Max, he has not only led me to great results but taught me more and I can empower this to my family and friends!
