I first encountered osteopathy when I was 15 years old. Ever since then I have been fascinated by how osteopaths can understand and help people by simply ‘listening’ and observing, the health and dysfunction of the body, through their hands. Now, as an osteopath myself (practising for nearly 15 years), this fascination with osteopathy continues. I am continually amazed by the body’s ability to heal itself, when placed in the best structural and functioning position possible. I find my work challenging and rewarding, with so much to learn.
I love working with osteopathic principles, philosophy and techniques, working in particular with the fascia in the body tissues to help people feel better and have an improved quality of life. Alongside my qualifications in Osteopathy (Osteopathy BSc (hons) MSCCO from the British School of Osteopathy, London) I have a degree in Human Sciences (BSc Hons)and a Masters in Environmental Philosophy. I am a mother of two and enjoy cycling, swimming, walking and practicing Yoga, Polates and daily meditation.
I practice gentle, yet highly effective cranial osteopathy techniques, combined where suitable, with soft tissue techniques, such as massage, effluage, muscle energy, resistance techniques, joint articulation and stretching. I work with a range of ages and backgrounds from the elderly to the newborn, pregnant women to sports enthusiasts.
