Relaxed conversations with people making a positive contribution

Richmond Stace is my go-to clinician for any person in pain, and he’s completely re-shaped the way I think about pain as a Doctor. He’s guided the recovery and empowerment of so many of my patients who’ve trapped for years by the way that their pain had made them think, feel and move.

The most amazing part is that it’s all based on awesome science – yet he makes the process so ‘human’.

He’s an inspiring speaker and coach, and a day spent learning from him is likely the be the best day of education you’ll ever have.

Richmond Stace really helped me and more importantly empowered me to get out of a hole! His holistic approach, with no stone left unturned, got me to see clearly where I was and provided me with the tool box not only to get fit again but hopefully to stay healthy.

I’d had a year of plantar fasciitis and other on-going chronic injuries before I turned to Richmond. With a range of mental and physical techniques, he helped me to heal and get back on track with my running. We worked really hard at integrating a support system of exercises into my daily life that underpin my running and give me the confidence and strength to run long and hard again.

If you’re looking for a slightly different approach from the norm that really does work – look no further!

I’ve known Richmond for a few years and we’ve worked together with patients who have issues of persistent musculoskeletal pain.
I appreciate his time and thoughtfulness with each and every one of these patients and how he manages to progress them on their individual pain journeys.
Richmond himself is a keen runner and appreciates the issues many athletes may encounter. Highly regarded.
