Retiring at the end of January 2021, Alain is now only treating existing physiotherapy patients.


Alain is hugely experienced and dual – qualified. Born in France where he studied physiotherapy he started his career in 1971, working for five years in a hospital specialising in the rehabilitation of patients suffering from conditions ranging from fractures to neurological and chest conditions. He then moved to England and began his secondary training as a Chiropractor. Experienced in treating and teaching, he is a fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractors. He later settled in Guildford and is a long-standing resident of Burpham. You would be hard pushed to show him something he hasn’t seen before and many patients seek him out for his unique dual skill -set for this reason.
