Raph completed his physiotherapy degree in Italy. Followed by a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

Raph has spent the last few years transferring strategies used in high performance sport. To recreational and non-sporting clients. Including those affected by chronic pain.

“I believe that the word ‘performance’ should not be restricted to athletes or actors. But should be applied to everyone. I aim to help my clients achieve their own sport or non-sport goals. Whilst feeling at their best at work or at home.”

Raph has lived and worked all over the World. Such as Italy, Ireland, Australia and the UK. Before settling in Chamonix.
