Shoulder Fix

11 December 2023

Having recently fractured the ball in my shoulder socket and badly damaged the soft tissue in my arm, I was recommended by my Physiotherapist to have some treatment with Marcus. I have found his knowledge, and advice on exercises extremely helpful and beneficial, and feel sure that my recovery in gaining full movement again is due to his treatment. I highly recommend him.


Scoliosis neck pain

5 December 2023

I feel the difference after my treatment sessions with Marcus, and I highly recommend him. I suffered from a horribly stiff neck for years due to having scoliosis since childhood, and stretches, exercising, and physio had not worked. From my first appointment with Marcus, the stiffness and discomfort I felt in my neck mostly went away. I felt great relief from the first session, and I have sessions every few months to address my scoliosis aches and pains as well as smaller aches and to maintain health and good mobility in my body. I always come away feeling benefits which are both instantaneous and lasting. Marcus is very professional, and I feel that his studies in Physiotherapy and Osteopathy keep him at the forefront of skills in practice. His approach is very holistic, and he’s shared his ideas and naturopathic beliefs with me regarding nutrition and sleep which have helped me improve my health. Professional and with a warm and positive energy, I look forward to my appointments and feel grateful for the benefits I’ve received from my sessions with him.


Foot Pain

24 November 2023

I must thank Marcus for his guidance in helping me heal my plantar fasciitis! I had been suffering plantar fasciitis pain since February 2023 and had seen two physiotherapists and a massage therapist, but they couldn’t get it gone, even with acupuncture and exercise. I finally got directed to Marcus in September. We discussed toe curls with a tea towel, weighted towel, a tennis ball to mobilise my foot, and a bottle of frozen water to help with the discomfort and swelling! We also worked on toe and calf strength and deep massage of my foot too. Following all his advice and treatments, I found more comfort after each visit. I can now walk without pain or feeling like I have a rock in my shoe. Thank you, Marcus.


Equine Therapy

23 November 2023

In our capacity as an equestrian competition organisation, we frequently encounter the necessity for injury treatments pertaining to both riders and horses within the regions of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

In an industry that necessitates optimal physical performance from both riders and horses on a consistent basis, the presence of a therapist possessing great talent, knowledge, understanding, and insight becomes imperative to uphold such standards.

The manual technique employed by Marcus, devoid of mechanical assistance, remains important in effectively addressing the physical requirements imposed on our performers and their equine companions. Marcus’s demeanour and methodology have a soothing effect, while his comprehension of the physical demands associated with any sort of performance has significant importance for our group. We have all developed a dependence on and confidence in Marcus’s discernment and care. His ability to provide riders with insight into the causes of injuries, methods of treatment, and strategies for maintaining a state of freedom from injury and discomfort is an invaluable resource for our community.

We are privileged to have an individual of Marcus’s exceptional quality in proximity to our location in Bucks/Herts.


Above and beyond

8 November 2023

My late wife was diagnosed with breast cancer back in February 2021. After much discussion, she decided to have a mastectomy and suffered the consequential cording post-operation. Marcus was introduced through a friend who had had lymph drainage for their legs. On the initial visit, Marcus was most empathetic, kind and considerate and discussed the treatment he could deliver at length. My wife would always report feeling so much better after his treatments, and we hold regard for him as a family. Since her passing in December last, Marcus has continued to keep in touch with me and has pulled me out of many a dark place. He is a true gent and friend. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone.


Acute back pain

3 October 2023

I have suffered with a bad lower back for the last few years and a few weeks ago it finally went into complete spasm. I couldn’t stand, walk or lay down comfortably.

I was referred to Marcus and he saw me at short notice. What a godsend! A consummate professional, full consultation and history, assessment and massage/manipulation that was a great relief.

At the second session he identified that the likely cause of my back trouble stems from my tight hamstrings and calves, which he worked on.

In addition to his expertise/professionalism he is a pleasure to work with and extremely personable.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Marcus to friends and family.

Neck Pain

2 October 2023

I have personally seen noticeable effects following my treatment sessions with Marcus, and I strongly endorse his services. I experienced chronic neck stiffness for years, during which attempts to alleviate the condition with stretching, physical activity, and physiotherapy proved ineffective. Following my initial consultation with Marcus, my neck’s sensations of stiffness and soreness significantly diminished. The initial session provided me with a significant sense of relief, prompting me to engage in further sessions on a periodic basis. These subsequent sessions treat minor discomforts and uphold my body’s overall well-being and optimal range of motion. I consistently get immediate and enduring advantages from this experience. Marcus demonstrates high professionalism in his constant hunger for knowledge in health and his CPD, which enables him to remain at the forefront of practising. With a professional demeanour and a welcoming and optimistic attitude, I eagerly anticipate my scheduled appointments and express gratitude for the advantages I have gained from my treatments under the care of Marcus.


Great insights and treatment based on a holistic diagnosis

4 September 2023

Marcus’ many years of medical experience in the fields of physiotherapy and osteopathy, coupled with his natural curiosity, wide reading and amazing ability to identify problem points and underlying causes with hands-on treatment make him my go-to-guy for lower back problems. I initially saw him for acute back pain relief, but now make a point of getting him in every six weeks or so for preventative manipuulation- and it’s working, with no disc flare ups for me.


Total Knee Rehab

3 September 2023

I was beginning to reconcile myself with being unable to do vigorous sports again as six months passed after my total knee replacement. However, being referred to Marcus for rehab exercises has been the best thing ever. After just 3 months I am now back to playing 5-a-side football once a week. I can’t thank you enough.


Excellent, holistic approach

2 September 2023

Can’t recommend Marcus enough. I first saw Marcus with a problem with movement in my right shoulder that had developed over some time. He listened carefully to my description of how things had developed, examined me in detail and then having made sure he understood the issue he undertook the perfect physical therapy to give instant and fantastic relief to the problem. He has also been careful to follow up on this and ensure that the benefits are maintained. He has also been helping me with a foot issue, taking the same approach. His expertise gives confidence and yields great results



28 August 2023

While Marcus has a vast array of training, he also has an innate ability to listen to your body. He can feel what’s out of alignment and then uses his myriad of skills to nudge things back into position. His approach is holistic. And the impact can be transformative.


Frozen Shoulder

8 August 2023

Marcus is like the Maradona of the massage world. He truly has the hands of God. He quickly and expertly worked on my frozen shoulder giving me relief. His knowledge of the human body is second to none. I look forward to using him again.


Great Expertise & Empathy (Parkinsons)

8 August 2023

Marcus is an excellent therapist with wide-ranging expertise in modern treatments. I have always found him to be extremely systematic in his diagnostic approach, but at the same time highly empathetic and good-humoured. I highly recommend him.



Back Pain

4 August 2023

In March I woke up in extreme pain unable to stand or walk and after 4 trips to AE and no diagnosis I was in despair. Marcus diagnosed my slip disc within 15 mins and has been amazing with his treatment I am know back to work and very happy to be out of pain.


Natural healer

4 August 2023

Marcus is a natural healer, whether you have physical, emotional, stressful pain, Marcus uses his holistic approach to evaluate and encompass all his knowledge and therapeutic touch to make you feel better. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Rehab after stroke

Marcus has helped me build up my strength and improve my walking. He has encouraged me and is always positive and helpful, even when I’m unsure. I have noticed a big improvement with his help.

Lin Norman

Tennis Elbow

30 July 2023

My chronic tennis elbows needed a lot more attention than many physios and osteopaths had been giving it. Marcus knew straight away how to approach the issue and I was healed in 4 sessions. I cannot thank him enough. He’s incredibly knowledgeable in anatomy and physiology and reads the body as a whole.

Foot Drop

28 July 2023

I went to see Marcus Cook after an accident where I fractured my pelvis and damaged my left sciatic nerve resulting in foot-drop. Marcus is a brilliant motivator and his rehabilitation exercises help me develop the strength in the muscles in my left leg and gain confidence in putting weight back on my left leg. I truly believe the input that Marcus had after my accident helped me get back on my feet and eventually back to work as a NHS Consultant Paediatrician. Dr Kanaga Sinnathuray

Life changes post traffic accident

25 July 2023

I met Marcus after I had been run down and suffered a number of life changing injuries. He has working in the NHS at the time; helped me from the first and continues to do so. He is expert and caring and always keeps going until he can locate where the issue is and resolve it.

He is also an acupuncturist and the best I have ever been treated by, he shares knowledge and gives advice on what to do to help you heal, what diet would work and what exercise will help. He has helped me more than any one since the accident, so much so I have referred my brother and a dear friend for his expert care also. No one is ever disappointed – quite the opposite. Marcus also will tell you when his services and skills are not best for you.

On top of all that he is personable, flexible and always good humoured – I can not recommend him highly enough.

Had some treatment done on my knee by Marcus and not only have I fully recovered, I learnt a lot during the process about the body and how it should work in accordance with my choice of sport.
