I have an MSc in Paediatric Osteopathy and over ten years’ experience of treating children. I worked and taught at the internationally renowned Osteopathic Centre for Children from 2004 to 2013. I love working with children and my experiences have convinced me that there is always something an osteopath can do to help.

What do osteopaths treat?

Osteopaths do not treat conditions. Our aim is simply to get the body working as harmoniously as possible.

This really can make all the difference.
