About Us

I’m John Gibbons. My mission is to take away your pain.

John Gibbons BodyMaster

Doctors, Physios and Sports Therapists seek me out to learn techniques that enable them to restore movement and remove pain from patients who previously believed that painkillers and surgery were their only choice, that they simply had to live with pain on a daily basis.

Today, I’m Osteopath to the Oxford University Boat Club Rowing Team, my books and articles are published internationally, I lecture at Universities, and get invited to speak all over the world.


But it wasn’t always like this.

Twenty years ago, as a British Army PT instructor I was used to pushing soldiers to their physical limits, and became increasingly frustrated by the limited results I could get treating strains and injuries using traditional physiotherapy. Convinced that there must be better ways to remove pain and increase mobility without resorting to drugs and invasive therapies, I embarked upon a quest to find a method to treat the whole person, not just the presenting symptoms.

I trained and qualified in Osteopathy, Sports Therapy, Personal Training, Nutrition, Reflexology and Acupuncture, painstakingly developing a treatment method that is as fast and effective on office workers and housewives as it is on top athletes and super-fit soldiers.

That 20-year journey has culminated in the Bodymaster Method ® – a unique fusion of therapy techniques rigorously designed to remove pain and restore mobility without recourse to drugs or surgery.

Now my motivating passion is to teach the Bodymaster Method ® to as many Doctors, Physios and Sports Therapists as possible and much of my time is dedicated to running training courses and seminars to establish a network of Bodymaster Practitioners worldwide.

If you’re a Physical Therapist or Doctor and you really want to discover new ways to make a lasting difference in the lives of your patients, sign up for a Bodymaster course today.
