LIAM HARKNESS I.I.S.T
Founder / Chief Therapist, The Stretch Clinic Kuala Lumpur

Liam graduated as a Sports Therapist in the UK in 1995 and has spent the last 20 years building his reputation as one of the finest therapists in Asia. In 2012 Liam travelled to Florida to study and work with Aaron Mattes the founder of Active Isolated Stretching (AIS). Under Aaron’s tutelage, Liam developed his approach to sports performance and rehabilitation by learning to optimize force distribution during movement. These biomechanical principles are the foundation of AIS and by 2015 Liam was invited to present his work at Sports Medical conventions and Physiotherapy conferences. In 2016 Liam opened up The Stretch Clinic in Malaysia which uses AIS protocols to improve athletic performance, treat injuries and manage chronic pain.

All the assessments and treatment plans used in The Stretch Clinic are designed by Liam to ensure a high level of care and fast effective recovery. The therapists are also hand-picked and trained to international standards so that patients can expect the very best care on their journey to better health.

Liam currently spends his time between working in the clinic in Kuala Lumpur and travelling to work with high profile clients in Europe and the Middle East. His client list includes World champions, Olympic gold medal winners and Champions league winning football stars as well as members of several Royal families and Heads of State. It is our hope that when people hear about The Stretch Clinic, our name will inspire hope and be synonymous with fast, effective results for all of your health and wellness goals.
