We’re a small, friendly team of practitioners and together we help keep the clinic running smoothly. All our practitioners are registered osteopaths, but each has a different area of interest and specialism. We all qualified from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with honors or master degrees in Osteopathic Medicine and diplomas in Naturopathy. We all regularly undertake courses to keep our knowledge and treatments up-to-date.
