‘I went to Vinny at a time of need based on recommendations from those in the know and he certainly has delivered.  I’ve been to several physical therapists, but none compare in relation to explaining treatments and how the athletic body works. Unlike the typical physical therapist, he identifies areas that require attention and varies treatment accordingly.  For a light guy he packs a punch and gets stuck in. As a bonus, it’s great to get training tips from an athlete who has achieved. I’m back running now and intend keeping up visits to Vinny to ensure I get back to and remain in top physical condition.   I would recommend Vinny to anyone looking to maximise their athletic performances.’

‘I was diagnosed with sero-negative arthritis at 17 and fibromyalgia shortly after this. I had been in an out of hospital a number of times over the years and been on more medication than I could count. Now at 21 I had to take a year out from college because my health had deteriorated so badly. I was in such an unhappy place having being used to training 6 days a week to then being unable to participate even in college. Shortly after deciding not to return to college for the year I met Vinny. Even after my first appointment with Vinny I felt better already and as the treatments have progressed I can see that I am improving all the time. He understood the illness that I was suffering from and really listened to me so as to work with me in managing and maintaining my health. He has truly helped on my road to recovery and enabled me to get back into good physical condition. I would highly recommend Vinny to both athletes and non-competitors alike as he has a wonderful knowledge of neuromuscular physiology and an excellent and caring approach to treatment as well as helping you to achieve your own goals.’

‘I spent two whole years out injured and was in a spiral of failed comebacks when I engaged with Vinny. As a decent club runner for most of my adult life, training and competing has always been an important part of my life. Being continuously injured led me to feeling down about myself and I became increasingly frustrated. Vinny looked at the whole picture and embraced my situation with great honesty, enthusiasm and positivity. He encouraged me to cross train more, provided top class physical therapy (believe me I’ve been around a few), made me do tailored exercises and always kept in touch . I’ve made great progress and was fortunate to win the Howth Triathlon and recent Fingal Duathlon. I am much more aware of my physical limits and count Vinny as a vital member of my sporting life. His motivation is purely based on empowering people to achieve their potential.He is gifted at what he does and offers a complete package for casual or elite sportspeople with maintenance or recovery.’

Eoin Brady

‘I have suffered with my sacro-iliac joint and lower back pain for years, aggravated and compounded by pregnancy, childbirth and running. I spent a small fortune on therapists until I met Vinny. His professionalism, knowledge of injuries and the human body is second to none and I know now if I even have a niggle that Vinny will instantly know how to sort it out. His approach and manner is direct and personable and I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.’

Jennifer Foran

‘Vinny instils a real “can do” attitude; he is always available for the inevitable day to day questions during the build up to an event. I have never gotten as must out of my training as I have since I started working with Vinny. When I first met Vinny I got an honest assessment of my current ability, and a roadmap to fulfil my potential.’

David Kirwin

‘I am a fitness instructor and enthusiast at Stringer Fitness in Ashbourne and teach up to 8 classes a day. As a result of this, I have always suffered with migraines and severe shoulder pain for years. I booked in to see Vinny and he fixed both for me in just a few sessions, using sports massage and dry needling. He confidently diagnosed my injuries in a professional manner, eased my discomfort and showed me self help techniques to keep the injuries at bay.  I regularly recommend my clients to visit Vinny’s clinic as he is the best I’ve been too.’

Yvonne Stringer

‘I started running about two and half years ago. It was gradual and never over the top. I then decided to challenge myself and up my runs and try going a little faster. I never thought about muscle maintenance or sports massage until I started getting twinges in my calves and numbness in my feet while running. It began to worry me. I went to the doctor about the numbness in my feet and he couldn’t figure out what was going on. A good friend recommended I go see Vinny. I booked myself in and found him to be very professional. I found his knowledge of running injuries (due to his own experiences) to be exceptional and he quickly explained what was going on in my own legs. He found trigger points in my shins referring down to my feet and quickly deactivated them. I now attend Vinny on a regular basis for maintenance and would highly recommend him to anyone with any sports injuries or twinges.’

Avril Bailey

‘I started going to see Vinny in October 2011, just before the Dublin Marathon, for frequent massage. I found him to be very professional in his work. He also made me feel very comfortable, as I know some women can feel uneasy going to a male physio. I have regularly attended Vinny’s clinic with any niggles or twinges since then. He has always fixed any injury for me very quickly and he doesn’t pressure you into coming back for any unnecessary treatment. I would recommend Vinny to anyone looking for anything from a massage to a sports injury.’

Jacqui Boyle

‘I have known Vinny since I was 12 years of age. Not only is he a very close friend of mine but, I can wholeheartedly say that Vinny has been instrumental in helping me achieve the Olympic B standard in my recent marathon debut in Rotterdam. As a chronic sciatica sufferer, I continue to work with Vinny on a weekly basis to manage my sciatic problems which enable me to train at the high volume and intensity that is required for the marathon. Specifically, I have found Vinny’s trigger point therapy and soft tissue release to be extremely beneficial in keeping my injuries at bay. I have recommended Vinny to many of my friends and fellow athletes and I will continue to do so in the future. I look forward to working with Vinny in the future as I bid to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games.’

Sean Connolly

‘I was referred to Vinny by a club mate in Donore Harriers. I had been sidelined for a few weeks with ITB syndrome and a calf problem which kept me out for weeks. After the first session of Vinny’s trigger point and massage techniques, I was back running the following day. My injuries have been a thing of the past as I visit Vinny regularly to keep my legs in good shape. I would recommend anyone to see Vinny as his wealth of experience and knowledge will have you going in the right direction.’

David Heffernan

‘I can honestly say that getting treated by Vinny saved my running career. I used to suffer badly with knee and groin pain. Vinny’s deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and stretching techniques, combined with Kinesio Taping eased my pain and got me back on the road literally. I find Vinny very positive in his approach and outlook and he has the running experience to back it up. He was very keen to get me back running as quickly as possible and in a safe manner. Vinny has a huge interest in his work and it really shows on the treatment table. I am now back running and enjoying it pain free thanks to Vinny.’

Danny O Farrell

‘Vinny combines the best of bio-mechanical research with a common sense approach to developing fitness plans that promote realistic and attainable goals. Without doubt, the best I’ve worked with.’
