Alexander Humphreys


Alexander Humphreys is a qualified physiotherapist and acupuncturist based in Manchester. Alexander is the owner of Physio Focus Swinton, with services offered including physiotherapy, sports massage, acupuncture and ergonomic desk assessments.

Often Alex treats people who are suffering with extreme pain after playing sport. As well as diagnosing treatments such as massage and acupuncture as potential remedies, he also provides alternative treatments such as food intolerance testing*.

Alex explains: “Often the root cause of pain suffered, or an injury, can relate to underlying issues around diet. People don’t immediately associate the link but many of the clients we talk to have issues around bloating, stomach pain and acne too.

“Having a food intolerance can affect you in many ways, including headaches, joint pains and acne. Sports massage is a fantastic way to relieve muscular tension but might not be the way to treat the root cause. Adding Lorisian products to our portfolio is a valuable part of the service we can provide.’’

Through the use of a simple finger prick blood test, Lorisian’s expert laboratory team analyse Alex’s clients IgG antibody reactions to over 200 foods and drinks. They then provide colour coded results and comprehensive support material to outline their personal trigger foods. This information helps form the basis of a guided elimination diet.

To find out more about Lorisian’s testing, please contact our friendly team of experts.

*Lorisian define food intolerance as a food-specific IgG reaction. Their information is intended to provide nutritional advice for dietary optimisation. Lorisian do not claim to treat or cure symptoms and recommend that you encourage your client to discuss any medical concerns they have with a doctor before undertaking a Lorisian test.
