On completing a four year, full time, course I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1997, founding the Emsworth Osteopathic Clinic in Hampshire the next year. Having spent many years visiting Cornwall we have decided to make it our home. I now live in Sennen and work in West Cornwall practicing as a manual therapist & structural integrator.
I have a particular interest in peoples postural and movement habits and how they contribute to their problems and have actively developed my practice in this area. As far as I am aware I am the first person in the UK to hold a BSc (Hons) Ost. and be a Certified Structural Integrator.
For the past twenty years I have been a student of Iyengar Yoga. In addition to the personal benefits gained it has provided a useful source of inspiration for patient exercises. The importance of exercise is becoming increasingly apparent to me and I try to ensure that my treatment incorporates appropriate strengthening &/or flexibility advice.
My interests outside work include surfing, cycling, yoga, walking our Newfoundland dog, film and cooking/eating.
In addition to back pain I have treated patients suffering from a wide range of conditions including;
- Arthritic pain
- Muscle spasms
- Inability to relax
- Certain types of back, neck, shoulder and elbow pain
- Joint pains
- Posture & alignment Sciatica
- Minor sports injuries and tensions
- Generalised aches and pains
- Certain forms of headache
- Circulatory problems
- Migraine prevention
