Clinic Owner Osteopath BSc (Hons) Ost Med, BSc (Hons) Sports and Exercise Science

I am a registered Osteopath and co-owner of the BodyFix Clinic.  I graduated 8 years ago from the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine (now ICOM) based at Nescot College.  Since that time, I have help thousands of patients return to work and lead a pain free life.

 

My typical patient is one with chronic lower back pain, often as a result of desk posture leading to inefficient mechanics and weakened muscles.  I work to restore function to the body through treatment and then maintain and strengthen through correct exercise.  Typically during a treatment, I will perform an examination to identify where the pain or dysfunction is and assess the surrounding joints and muscles, because very often where the pain is…the problem isn’t.  After we have a diagnosis, treatment can begin.  I use manipulations, articulations, muscle energy techniques, Kinesio-taping and IASTM tools.  I will then prescribe the correct muscle activation exercises for you to take away and do at home.

 

I grew up in Stoneleigh, attending Sparrow Farm School before going to Epsom and Ewell High. At University I studied Sport and Exercise science.  Even at school I had always been interested in a career in manual therapy, but after I sustained a back injury (the day I was due to go traveling) I visited an Osteopath.  They really helped me and I was able to travel pain free. After that, my interest was piqued and I left my job in the fitness industry to retrain as an Osteopath.

 

In my spare time I like to travel as much as I can.  My best trip so far was Australia.  I enjoy exercising, mainly using HIIT, Callisthenics and Yoga.  In the past I have competed in Triathlons, Duathlons and 5-10km runs.

 

Since graduating as an Osteopath, I have seen a wide variety of patients.  These include professional athletes and dancers, desk workers, manual workers, teenagers and 80-year olds. I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
