I Help People Resolve Persistent Symptoms

I help people resolve persistent symptoms, so they can instead become free to focus on the things that really matter to them.

“10 years ago, I woke up and found I couldn’t walk. The pain in my pelvis was unexplainable. After many tests and seeing every professional going, I still had no answers. I was unable to walk without crutches for the next 1.5 years. There were days I couldn’t get out of bed and my mum had to become my carer. Being 21 and so immobilised suddenly started to also really affect my mental health. I went to see Sam to see if he could help, and he completely changed my life. Within a couple of sessions, I took my first 3 unaided steps in 1.5 years. From then on, I got better and better with weekly/fortnightly visits to Sam. 10 years on, thanks to Sam, I have no issues at all anymore. I now live 1.5 hours away from Sam’s workplace but I still travel to see him whenever I have any problems as I trust him whole heartedly. I cannot recommend him enough!”

The Big Problem With Persistent Symptoms

Samuel Maddock OsteopathSamuel maddock OsteopathI have worked with many thousands of clients over the past 17 years, and when I hear the stories that they tell, it saddens me. They describe aches and pains, fatigue, anxiety and stress. They often feel out of balance; either physically, emotionally, or energetically.

Sadly, one thing many of my clients have in common, is that their symptoms have persisted. In fact, Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms (MUPS) as they are often referred to, are extremely common and can last for over a year in 30% of cases. And they can interfere greatly with daily life and productivity at work. Those suffering with MUPS often feel like they are not listened to by the clinicians that they see, and they often end up feeling cast aside to deal with their symptoms on their own. As an osteopath trained in functional medicine and PEMF therapy, my first task with every client that I meet, is to listen. And only when I have done this, can I begin to guide them. Only when I have listened carefully, can we work together to formulate a plan of action to start to resolve their persistent symptoms and bring them back into balance.

I have dedicated my career to helping my clients resolve their persistent symptoms. I have helped people to overcome pain in their joints and muscles, resolve stubborn migraine headaches and balance their energy levels. I have helped them discover foods that can help promote healing, and remove the foods from their diet that are upsetting their symptoms. I have helped people successfully manage their stress and anxiety, and improve their ability to cope with the effects of an old injury or chronic health condition. But most of all, I have been interested in them, their story and everything that makes them unique. Just like you will be…

So, if you are searching for answers and not sure where to begin, I would love to hear from you.

“I can honestly say I don’t think I’d have got to where I am now without the kindness, patience, support and knowledge that Sam has offered.”

Osteopaths work mostly on muscles, joints and ligaments, through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. They use a wide variety of techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint articulation, manipulation and cranial osteopathy.

Osteopaths view the body as an integrated and indivisible whole, with the ability to heal itself. This self-healing mechanism can be utilised as part of the osteopathic treatment process, with the core aim of improving the quality of function within the body and removing blocks to healing.

“I recommend Sam to everyone I meet who is suffering with back pain. I have been amazed at both his treatment abilities and also his wealth of medical knowledge. I trust him completely and appreciate his calm, pleasant manner”

Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine can help you...

Functional Medicine focuses on why you feel the way you do, not just the symptoms you are experiencing.

Functional medicine is a relatively new way of looking at our health and uses a different approach for helping to prevent and manage complex symptom patterns and chronic health conditions.

“Sam has been wonderful at helping me get my migraines under control.”

Anouska Wheeler, UK

“I have recommended Sam to many friends and without exception they comment on his great skill, and natural empathy to assist all of them significantly with various aches and pains... Sam is seriously brilliant and I would guarantee anyone that a visit to him will change their life for the better.”

PEMF Therapy

Without doubt, one of the most fascinating technologies I have ever researched is PEMF therapy and I have used this every single day for the past six years. I have also introduced PEMF therapy to many hundreds of people and seen some truly remarkable results.

I will explain why…

It’s really about our cells. Believe it or not, recent research has revealed that we have 37.5 trillion cells within our bodies, and 200 different types of cell. PEMF therapy increases your cell energy and helps improve the way your cells function. Research has shown that this can lead to many lasting health benefits including, less pain, better sleep, improved relaxation and enhanced energy levels.

“My decision to buy the iMRS PEMF mat is probably one of the most life changing decisions I have made....but you don't just get the mat and it's applicators, you get the advice and outstanding support from Samuel which is second to none. I presented him with various health issues and he has always been there to help me understand and guide me through the best bespoke programmes for my needs. I am starting to see the benefits and am confident that my health will get better and better.”
