I am a GOsC registered Osteopath who treats people and animals in the Northamptonshire area.
Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between structure and function in the body, which leads to a focus on the skeleton and joint function, along with muscles, soft tissue and internal organs. As osteopaths, we have a holistic approach and will look at the whole person in order to treat the cause, rather than just the symptoms of the pain. We are primarily hands-on therapists that use many different soft tissue techniques, as well as manipulation and stretching to relieve pain, aid the healing process and restore balance to the body. We also provide postural/lifestyle advice as well as recommending exercises you can do at home to aid recovery.
We treat many conditions, not just back pain and treat people of all ages, from the newborn to the elderly and from pregnant ladies to sports people. Here are just some of the conditions we can help with:
Back pain, digiestive problems, arthritic pain, circulatory problems, frozen shoulder, sciatica, sports injuries, general aches and pains, fibromyalgia, muscle spasm/tension, joint pain e.g., Knees, hip etc, neuralgia, rheumatic pain, lumbago.

Training, qualifications & experience
I studied Osteopathy at Oxford Brookes University, having previously obtained my first BSc Hons degree in Life Sciences, and several other physical therapy related courses. Although, I originally used to work for a large financial institution, I had a keen interest in manual therapies for many years, before finally deciding to change my career and specialise in this area. I started my original business in 2003 after gaining my initial qualification in McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapy.
My main qualifications include:
BSc Hons Osteopathy - Oxford Brookes University
BSc Hons Life Sciences - Open University
PG. Diploma in McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapy and Animal Manipulation - Witney College of Spinal Therapy and OCEPT
I have also undertaken many other animal and human related manual therapy courses, including massage and hydrotherapy and have many years experience working with animals as well as people.
