Fantastic, deep, subtle, effective treatment, Jay always gets straight to the relevant areas. Have had sessions many years ago as well as recently, and am delighted how long the benefits lasted. Highly recommended
Jay Ruddock, M.Ost, BA(Hons), Dip PT
Registered Osteopath and Advanced Practitioner of the Rolf Method of Structural Integration
Jay’s interest in the human body and how it can be changed and developed began in his teenage years due his participation in endurance cycling events. This led him to complete a degree in sport, health and physical education at Bangor University with the aim of using this knowledge to help people change their body’s performance so it serves them better.
In 2003 after completing a diploma in personal training Jay set up Align Body Clinic, helping people achieve their exercise goals through one to one training sessions. Around this time Jay struggled with injury and pain from running, through this experience he developed an interest in injury rehabilitation and manual therapy.
After experiencing dramatic benefits from receiving a course of Structural Integration treatments Jay spent six months of 2005 in Colorado learning to become a practitioner of Structural Integration, and then travelled to Hawaii in 2007 to progress to be an advanced practitioner.
Jay studied at the London School of Osteopathy, graduating in 2011 with a Masters in Osteopathy and winning the Dean’s Prize for Excellence.
Since then Jay has fulfilled a number of roles, notably sitting as a medical expert on the South West NHS Research Ethics Committee and acting as a facilitator on their researcher training courses. Currently Jay acts as a member of the investigating committee for the General Osteopathic Council.
Having strong interest in the evidence base for osteopathy and pain management Jay has been part of a team who published a research paper investigating low back pain in 2014, and has been involved in writing evidence based summaries for the osteopathic profession.
Most of Jay’s time is spent seeing patients in his Bath practice, helping them to address pain and limitations in their performance, whether it be participating in sport or simply being able to be comfortable in day to day activities.
A keen runner, Jay has completed running events from 10km up to 50mile ultramarathons in the UK and abroad. His interest in running has led him to specialise in the treatment of running injuries.
