I am passionate about helping people understand their body and improve their health. After completing my initial training in Osteopathy at the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine (University of Surrey), I have continued my post-graduate education in clinical practice in Classical Osteopathy, paediatric osteopathy and western medical acupuncture.
I enjoy treating a wide range of health challenges in patients young or old.
I previously worked for large technology and financial companies in France, America and the UK and have experienced first-hand the stresses of corporate life. These past experiences allow me to better understand the challenges faced by patients and how to help them restore their health.
My main therapies are Osteopathy, Sports Massage, Medical Acupuncture and Kinesio taping.
Osteopathy is a drugless system of healing or medicine devised by an American medical doctor, A.T. Still, in 1874 after becoming disillusioned by the remedies of the medical system of the times.
Osteopaths believe that the body has the ability to heal itself and thrive for health. They use manual therapy to remove any obstruction to the whole body’s ability to heal.
Consultation - What to expect:
During the initial consultation, you will be asked about your current issue, general health, medications and any previous medical history. This is to ensure a safe examination and treatment.
After the history, you will be asked to undress to your underwear or shorts in order to assess your posture and movements. Some orthopaedics or other medical tests may also be performed if appropriate to determine what may be going on and to decide on an appropriate treatment plan.
For treatment, I use physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
I also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
