Osteopathy was started by an American doctor called Andrew Taylor Still. He lost three of his children to meningitis and felt that medicine, as he had been taught it, had failed him when he needed itmost. Osteopathy looks at the body as a whole unit and aims to place it into a position where it can heal itself.
That's why there are Osteopath's, like us. We're here to prevent and correct the damage that modern living does to our bodies. So if you're one of those Homo Sapiens that prefers to hunt for a chairand gather aches and pains, we could help you to feel a bit more human.

With his first love being medicine, he graduated with his medical degree in 1996 and further training in paediatrics and general medicine led him to NHS hospitals in London. Having being introduced toosteopathy previously and been greatly impressed by its philosophy, osteopathy became his second love and he decided to focus his career in this area, graduating from the College of Osteopaths in London in 2001.
He has since worked closely with GP's, psychiatrists, and complementary healthcare providers in treating patients and expanding his body of knowledge and skills. Osteopathy is the first complementaryhealthcare profession to gain full statutory recognition under The Osteopaths Act (1993) which in turn led to the formation of the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and Register of Osteopaths. Only practitioners who have shown they are competent and safe to practice are allowed on the Register.
