I booked up with Gary for a 5 week course for Buteyko and Oxygen advantage breathing hoping it would help with my Asthma and my sports training. At the end of week five I have learned all the techniques needed to carry on progressing with the breathing systems.
I can honestly say that I have seen a massive improvement in all of my Asthma symptoms to the point where I don't think it will be long until I completely come off all of my Asthma medication.
My sports endurance is also through the roof! I would highly recommend to all.

A MUST if you suffer from Asthma!!

Thanks Gary!

First visited Gary over 3 years ago for treatment with an injury I sustained in a kickboxing bout, not only did he sort the injury I can back feeling stronger from it. I have used him ever since for massages and to treat minor niggles etc. A first class service and a top guy to boot. Highly recommend.

Clare Horgan

Sorted me out 10yrs ago and I’ve been an injury free runner since. But I now a hip/glute injury has stopped me running. 1st session about body maintenance, which caused injury, and locating the pain. Back next week to work on fixing it. Gary is excellent, informed and knowledgeable. He doesn’t just fix the problem but helps preventing further injuries.

I went to see Gary with very tight shoulder neck and back muscles and I was suffering from migraines as well.
He introduced me the diaphragm breathing which I wasn’t doing. It’s made such a difference. I’m sleeping better and my mobility has improved greatly. I also received massages as well which helped relax and loosen up the muscles. I’ve not felt this good for a long time. Thank you Gary.
I recommend him to anyone who has tight back and neck muscles to go see him. He has helped me greatly.

Highly recommend Gary’s work. It took some time but after learning how to breath properly I have increased my performance and have lost 3 stone. Go and check it out!

I would like to publicly thank Gary
I went on a breathing course as I was having panic attacks about wearing a mask. I have not had a panic attack since and have used the breathing techniques daily.
Highly recommended if you have similar issues.

I am 67 and have been asthmatic since the age of 11 and have taken asthma medication since then, including “relievers”, “preventers” and steroids.
The Buteyko Breathing course has been a complete revelation to me. By applying the techniques and following the exercise regime, in only five weeks I have achieved a marked improvement in my quality of life. Furthermore, the daily breathing exercises are not onerous but they have to be done correctly to be effective. Gary is a very committed, knowledgeable and attentive Instructor /Coach and this helped me enormously.
The main results after only five weeks are:
• Major reduction in inherent wheeziness
• Higher day-time energy levels
• Better quality (and less) sleep
• Significant increase in my thresholds for undertaking strenuous activity
• I haven’t needed my reliever inhaler for, at least, 15 days. This is unique and incredible for me!
The results are very compelling and I am sure asthmatics of all ages could improve their quality of life by undertaking a Breathing course with Gary.

Gary is fab- my son has had various sporting ailments and problems related to his growth spurts. Gary is excellent- hugely knowledgable. Never more appointments than you need- just gets the job done! 👏🏻

Jo Ellis
Great friendly guy. Done a fantastic job on my back injury, along with pointing out some other issues that have been building.
Will definitely continue to use him.
Phil Sandilands
I fell down the stairs over a year ago and tore 3 ligaments in my ankle. A year of physio and an operation and I still couldn’t run without pain. Running was my passion so I decided to go somewhere else and 3 months later after being seen by Sports Therapy I just ran my first 10k post injury in a great time 👍🙌
Can’t thank Gary enough, I was genuinely starting to believe would never run again.
Brilliant would highly recommend

I've been working with Gary Ling since the beginning of the year now, focusing on my breathing. During training, as I have asthma, it was normally my lungs and chest that gave up first. However, since doing a few single breathing exercises (breath holds etc) not only have I had no asthmatic symptoms, but I have also seen an increase in my fitness levels and an improvement in my recovery rate 🙏🏽 Definitely recommend 👍🏼

Hayley McLean

Absolutely brilliant. Extremely knowledgeable, knows his stuff, gets results!

Karen Gunnell Lefteri

Gary is great, cannot recommend him enough. Far more than just a great massage.

Sue Akehurst
I have played football since I was 4 (21 now) I played at a decent standard but have been riddled with injuries from 16 onwards - having surgery twice. Hamstring trouble, quad trouble - you name it I had it. I have been playing semi pro for 2 years, and was ready to give up this year because I had spent half my time on the physio bed with muscle strains (mainly hamstring), and I don’t think I managed 1 full game last season because of injuries.
My neighbour and also a good friend recommended Gary to me, and said that he was amazing so I thought I would give it a go, as I thought I was a bit of a loss cause.
Since seeing Gary, I have not been injured once - and better than that, I have not even felt tight/weak after matches. I have played about 10/11 FULL games in quick succession - sometimes 3 games in 1 week, seeing Gary once every 1 or 2 weeks, and it has honestly changed me completely. I hadn’t played a 90 minute game in about a year and a half, and seeing Gary has meant I don’t even think about coming off at all.
I couldn’t recommend him high enough, what he has done for me and is continuing to do to make sure I stay fit is remarkable and something I am truly thankful for.

Great service. Very highly recommended.

Jess McKenna

I can't thank Gary enough. I was in chronic pain for three years and until I started treatment with Gary I had no idea what was wrong with me. Cannot recommend strongly enough.

Christopher Slee

Visited yesterday...... as a Hairdresser in December it takes its toll on, back neck and shoulders. I was in terrible pain, I slept better than I had in weeks last night. Thanks for fitting me in at short notice and reliving the pain so I could work without taking paracetamol.

Sonia King
Friendly, professional and effective therapy! Gary is very knowledgeable and offers a variety of techniques. Both myself, my husband and friend have all been treated by him and I wouldn't hesitate to return for ongoing sports therapy.
After a shocking (my body condition) initial assessment (went there with shoulder and neck pain) it was clear that my muscle network was completely out of sync and I was using incorrect muscle groups for tasks. Whilst the 'activations' are some what unpleasant Gary teaches you how to self activate at home, by the second session I already saw progress and continued to progress each week. Gary aims to solve the problem within only a few sessions unlike these 'programmes' other chiropractors and physiotherapists want to sign you up to. He used activations and manipulation on me, acupuncture on my husband and other manipulation techniques on my friend so it isn't just 'one for all'. I've already recommended him further and will attend for follow up sessions just to make sure all my muscle groups are correctly activated.
