Who am I?
I am a Frenchman who graduated in 2004 with a degree in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation (including a diploma in Massage Therapy) from ULB in Brussels, Belgium.
After working for a couple of years as a junior physiotherapist for NHS Grampian, I started working in private practice and for the following nine years I developed and managed a clinic in Perth. In 2011, I started the Dunfermline clinic as part of that role.
I founded Benji Physio in 2016.
My training abroad has always been a great advantage, allowing me to combine the more hands-on approach (massage, mobilisations and manipulations) of the continent with the more exercise-based approach practised in the UK to offer a comprehensive and efficient way to assess and treat patients.
My post graduate training is extremely varied. From the usual taping courses to very specialised back treatment courses, a foundation acupuncture course and a diploma in injection therapy, I am keen to learn new techniques and develop new skills. This will, of course, also be beneficial to my patients.
I am very proud to be trusted by local healthcare practitioners (GPs, podiatrists, etc.) and personal trainers to provide a second opinion for their patients/clients.
In addition to my clinical work, I worked for the Scottish Rugby Union as the U16 Caledonia physiotherapist for a few seasons and now offer ad-hoc physiotherapy and first aid cover. I am also a World Rugby FAIR first aid educator teaching Sports First Aid courses.
My love of anatomy is key to my interest in teaching and I give seminars to medical students at the Medical School of St Andrews University.
