My training in rehabilitative care progressed from my original training as an exercise instructor and Pilates trainer (I have ten years experience as a Pilates instructor, with specialist training in Pilates for pregnancy).
I qualified as a Physiotherapist in Italy, where I gained a diploma in Physical Therapy and worked at the highly respected Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy Institute in Italy for five years.
Whilst in Italy I also qualified in the Mezieres method (a whole body approach that focuses on restoring the patient’s function and a pain free movement through specific postural techniques designed to elongate the posterior myofascial chain and encourage neutral spine alignment).
I then spent a year in Australia working as a Pilates Instructor and also as a physiotherapist for South Melbourne Women’s Football Club.
In 2012 I relocated to London where I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy with a Masters in Osteopathy, and then went on to complete a postgraduate course in Traditional Osteopathic methods. The philosophy behind this classical osteopathic technique is to treat the patient as a whole and to enable the body to restore homeostasis in order to promote health and reduce pain.
Unsurprisingly, I have a holistic approach to treatment. I seek to identify and treat the cause of the presenting problem, rather than focusing only on relieving the symptoms. I have a breadth of experience treating a wide range of conditions, from sport injuries to chronic complaints and use mainly hands-on techniques although treatment can involve lifestyle advice and exercise to address maintaining factors. I have a particular interest in treating the spine as a means to enhance function to the other areas of the body.
I speak fluent English and Italian.
I'm registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and I'm fully insured.
