Owner, Functional Movement Neurologist, Sports Rehabilitation Instructor

Hi, I’m Mark the founder of Three Sixty Rehab! I have titled myself an ‘Functional Movement Neurologist’ because I don’t seem to fit into any current paradigm within the health and wellbeing sector. I use a system of assessment and therapy based on a common sense understanding that the body and brain are completely integrated.

Faulty movement, back pain, knee pain, altered posture is always driven by the brain. So, lets raise our game to match the amazingly complex nature of the body and help it do a better job!

I am essentially a ‘Functional’ Movement’ specialist with a comprehensive background in physical training, exercise and sports rehabilitation but more recently ‘applied neurology’.

I have always had an empathy for those in pain and I decided that I would be the best I possibly could to help stop this mostly unnecessary suffering. It never sat well with me that people would live debilitated by pain or dysfunction only to be offered basic and often ineffective treatments or generic exercise programmes so I decided to do something different.

My aim is to give the very best care and treatment there is using the understanding that we are the most complex living organism in the universe! Your body is a highly sophisticated system capable of healing itself – we just need to create the right environment!

Prior to setting up Three Sixty rehab I served as a specialist exercise rehabilitation instructor with the Royal Navy’s physical training branch. This unique role allowed me to operate alongside doctors and physiotherapists, not to mention the servicemen and women who I had the privilege to rehabilitate and serve alongside. I held these people in great esteem and always wanted to provide them with the best care I could which, I believe, start my search to find the best ways to help heal the human body!

I graduated from the prestigious Headley Court Defence medical Centre in 2007 wanting to save the world….one person at a time! I went on to St Marys Twickenham to undertake my Sports Rehabilitation Degree where I managed a First Class honours – mainly because I kept asking questions like that annoying kid at school! However, it still didn’t make sense and I still didn’t have the answers I wanted and why (see more questions..) didn’t somethings work as the books and research said they would??

I then had my first life changing experience in 2013 as I undertook the Gray Institute for Functional Transformation (GIFT). This was the most awe inspiring experience I’ve had to date! I finally learned the art of looking at the body and letting ‘IT’ show me where the problem was. All I had to do was know what is supposed to happen from the foot to the head and ‘boom’ right in front of your eyes you can see the ‘missing bits’! I’ve since helped hundreds of people out of back pain just because I noticed a tight hip or stiff foot! The realist have been ludicrous and life changing for those who were previously debilitated or on high levels of pain meds just to get through the day. Needless to say I am very proud to have helped – however helping people can become a drug, especially when they smile and or cry became they know they are free from there own prison cell of poor quality of life!

Not to rest on my laurels I have found myself becoming an Applied Movement Neurology student currently at the master level. This is a completely different skill set where I ‘tap’ into the nervous system and run a ‘diagnostic’ to see where the deep seated problems are and get to fixing the glitches so the body can effectively ‘Re-Boot’ and optimise its operating system. I still can’t believe the results I am getting. People are seriously getting there lives back after these treatments!

So, I’ve found the best way to bring about healing in the body is to amalgamate all these skills and deliver a neuro-biomechnaical assessment and treatment for extremely powerful results!

I am very proud to work the way I do and meet amazing people everyday who deserve to live the best life they can – I take huge satisfaction in playing a part in that for sure!
