About 

I trained at the University of Surrey Institute in Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in 2012. I have been running a private practice from home.

As well as treating, I promote awareness of how Osteopathy can help with your health by providing personal talks to communities and groups. If you would like more information click here.

People often ask do I enjoy what I do, I tend to smile because I am passionate about Osteopathy and have immense appreciation to those whom I have learnt from. Once a patient is away from the pain & discomfort, I enjoy seeing the results and hearing about the positive differences they have noticed in their life.

I also offer other complementary therapies so if you are simply looking for a more professional therapeutic difference to standard massages, MMW Osteopath is the place to book!

Therapies available: 

Osteopathy

Western Medical Acupuncture

Antenatal/Postnatal Massage

Baby Massage & Learn Baby Massage

Swedish Massage

Head, Neck and Shoulders

Indian Head Massage

Thai Foot Massage 

Hopi Ear Candling

The Practice 

I run a warm, friendly, fully insured private practice based in Thornton Heath, Croydon.

I aim for your visit to be informative and therapeutic, and in certain cases, will use an exercise programme to help you regain strength and mobility.

At our practice we are GDPR compliant, the newly revised General data protection Act 2018 can be downloaded for your viewing

 

What is Osteopathy? 

Osteopathy is a Healthcare profession which focuses on diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of the Musculoskeletal disorders and other related disorders.

Osteopaths use a variety of specialised techniques in order to bring change to how your body behaves and functions; you can find more information regarding techniques and terminology in the Glossary.

We are trained in advanced Anatomy & Physiology, Neurology, Orthopeadic examination and manual manipulation.

There are different approaches in Osteopathy; Structural, Classical, Visceral and Cranial Osteopathy. Although they may differ, the aim of your treatments are the same; to reduce discomfort, increase mobility, manage pain control, encourage balance, ease and repair. 

Here at MMW Osteopath I have been trained using all four approaches. Your treatment plans are tailored to your bodies specific needs.  

What to expect 

Your first appointment is between 45 minutes to 1 hour long with follow up appointments lasting for 30 minutes. You are welcome to bring someone with you to your appointment/s.

You may be required to remove some of your clothing, please say if you are uncomfortable with this. It is recommended that you bring shorts and a t-shirt or sports bra. Robes and towels are provided.

We will discuss your previous medical history, I will then complete a thorough examination, discuss concerns and a treatment plan based on my examination findings. We will discuss the benefits and any risks of treatment or adverse effects to treatment and will consult on a follow up appointment. 

Consultation Process:

I will complete a re-assessment and will discuss recommendations regarding posture awareness and exercises. We will discuss what to expect after treatment and next steps. You will receive a Welcome Pack which contains helpful information and your "Just for you" card.
