About Your Sports Therapist
Chris Clarry-Sports Therapy
"Invest in your health: its the best investment you'll ever make"
My former profession has given me a unique perspective and understanding into the nature of injury and rehabilitation in sport related injuries.
Having been myself involved at professional level sport for over 4 decades, I remain actively involved as a head coach in an Multi County based martial arts organisation having originally studied in Japan to a teacher level.
In Japan the traditional healing methods such as Anma - Shiatsu - Seitai - Kiatsu- Acupuncture- Moxibuxion & Traditional Cupping therapies are taught side by side the practice of traditional Martial Arts and so my personal journey has been strongly influenced by my mentors from both Japan and the United Kingdom.
My Father Edward L. Clarry was also a martial arts practitioner and professional Sports therapist with over 50 years in the industry,
and without doubt my greatest mentor within the field of Sports Therapy.
He started out as a former personal student of the original founder of ITEC, Prof. William Arnold-Taylor, later qualifying as a ITEC tutor in his own right, a registered Physiatrist and member of the Football Associations Regional Medical Society with qualifications endorsed by the late Sir Bobby Robson, former professional footballer and manager.
My client base has developed over the years mainly from referrals.
I am currently based on Canvey Island, Essex, although I also offer a mobile sports therapy service which covers most of Essex & Hertfordshire when not practicing from my home clinic.
I practice a combination of traditional Japanese manual therapies as well as current complementary clinical practice methods, all aimed at helping my clients recover from both sports, leisure and industrial related soft tissue injuries.
