Parkside Osteopathy - Robyn Phillips
Hi, I'm Robyn from Parkside Osteopathy. My philosophy is live, love, learn, laugh and MOVE.
My focus is on getting you moving well and keeping you moving. While a lot of my clients come to me for relief from back pain, I do spend time working on their hips, knees, ankles and feet. Pains throughout the body can often be linked to the way you move and the way you use your body. Osteopaths treat whole bodies so if you are suffering from pain or discomfort, it is important to remember that the body is one connected system. When one part isn't working well, it often has an effect on the other parts.
Osteopathy is for all of you!
Please note that I am now based in 401 Parkway House, Sheen Lane, East Sheen, SW14 8LS.
If there is any way that I can help you, please feel free to get in touch.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Masters in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy (now University College of Osteopathy) and am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). I am a member of the Institute of Osteopathy (iO) and am fully insured. I also hold a Diploma in Sports Massage, am a Mental Health First Aider and often incorporate massage and wellness techniques into treatment plans.
Following an initial consultation to understand the cause of your symptoms, I will work with you to agree a treatment plan with the aim of restoring your body to a state of balance. I use a variety of techniques including touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage. These are aimed at helping your body’s own healing mechanisms by increasing the mobility of joints, relieving muscle tension and enhancing the blood and nerve supply to the body. I may also provide advice on wellness and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
I am a wellness advocate, promoting self-care and ageing well. I believe that older should be defined as 'stronger than ever' and 'better than before'.
