John Cox – ESPB Collaboration

John Cox is an industry expert in the field biomechanics and injury prevention. His collaboration with the ESPB – English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards – is testament to this.
As well as sponsoring the programme, alongside Parris Cues and champion Shaun Murphy, John imparted years of knowledge and experience via a talk to elite junior snooker players who have qualified as the top 8 seeds for the relaunched tour.

John & Jackie Cox Support Cirque Du Soleil, “Alegria”

In December of 2021 we were asked if we wanted to provide massage for the Performers of LUZIA by Cirque du Soleil, and we are delighted to have been asked once again this year with John & Jackie currently visiting the team at Production Park Studios.

John & Jackie are having a great experience working back stage providing massage for the Athletes and Performers of another one of their shows called ALEGRIA. 

In John’s words…

It’s very hard work, however it’s a complete honour to be working with top Athletes and Performers from all over the world!


Their commitment to being at the peak of their fitness is awe inspiring.

Jackie & I couldn’t be prouder to be a small part of this supporting team. We’re loving every moment and thank you once again for allowing us to provide our expertise to these fantastic artists.

Gavin stepped up to become a first team physiotherapist at BFC in 2021 where he was responsible for the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of elite athletes.

Gavin has now returned to John Cox Health to apply his knowledge and experience to improve patients quality of life and wellbeing and we’re already seeing a stream of clients return.
