I’m an Osteopath and Pilates instructor.
I’m very passionate about my job and I’m a firm believer that each person has its own uniqueness and therefore should be treated as such. I have a holistic approach to treatment which seeks to identify and treat the cause of the presenting problem, rather than focusing only on relieving the symptoms. I’m particularly interested in treating the spine as a means to enhance function to the other areas of the body given the close anatomical connections between the spine and the limbs.
A wide range of conditions, from sport injuries to chronic complaints can be considered under the umbrella of Osteopathy and I mainly use hands-on techniques. In order to address maintaining and predisposing factors I can sometimes give advice on lifestyle and exercise.
I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy and I also completed a postgraduate course in Traditional Osteopathic methods which enhances the concept of ‘whole’ where a specific treatment enables the body to restore homeostasis, improve health and reduce pain. This philosophy has had a great impact on my professional experience and on how I view my patients general well-being.
My training in rehabilitative care progressed from my original training as a fitness instructor and Pilates trainer and I have been teaching mat classes and apparatus sessions on a individual and group basis for the last 10 years in Italy, Australia and now in the UK.
I have previously worked as a physiotherapist in Italy for 6 years where I gained experience on patients pre and post surgery, rehabilitative care and massage.
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 speak fluent English and Italian.
I'm registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and I'm fully insured.
