Peter has been working in Edinburgh, as a sports and deep tissue therapist since 2006, spending most of that time working with physiotherapists in a clinical setting, but also working onsite at events and performances. Peter originally trained and worked as an engineer and has always been interested in how things work. He became interested in anatomy and physiology and has developed a passion for understanding how tissues become dysfunctional and how to effectively treat them to alleviate symptoms.
