When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well-tuned engine, it will function with
the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living. Osteopathy is a way of diagnosing
and treating damaged parts of the body and can help to reduce pain and discomfort in these affected areas. It can be used to treat muscles, ligaments, nerve and joint injuries.

All osteopaths in the UK are regulated
by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is against the law for anyone
to call themselves an osteopath unless they are registered with the GOsC,
which sets and promotes high standards
of competency, conduct and safety.
49% of the UK's population experience back pain which lasts for over 24 hours at some point in their life.
Nearly two thirds of adults in the UK have had experience of back pain and 2.5 million people have back pain every day
of the year.
After the common cold, problems caused by the lower back are the most frequent cause of lost work days in adults under the
age of 45.

I am a fully registered Osteopath and have a practice in Southampton, since graduating in June 2002 from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine i have worked in various practices in Hampshire and Dorset. I am a member of the Statutory Register of Osteopaths and The British Osteopathic Association. I am recognised with AXA, PPP, HSA Healthcare.
I treat people of all age groups from newborn and premature babies right through the age spectrum to the elderly. I have a big passion for treating children and babies in particular. I spent two years undertaking a masters in paediatric osteopathy at the Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy in London, the leading clinic of its kind in the world. This course involved working with a wide range of childhood problems, such as asthma, eczema and sleeping problems as well as sports related injuries. The course also included time spent working in neonatal units helping premature babies with their first few weeks adjusting to the outside world.
