From this he further developed an in-depth understanding of the body and its bio-mechanics.
Jake has a passion for helping others heal both their minds and bodies and uses Osteopathy as a tool for this. In 2018 he travelled to India where he completed and internship in Orthopaedic hospital, treating pre and post-surgery patients whilst also observing surgeries.
