Sian has been an osteopath for the last 15yrs and qualified at the University College of Osteopathy (formally British School of Osteopathy). When she first graduated she spent 5 years working in a large multidisciplinary clinic in Suffolk. She then moved to London to work in a busy West End clinic and was there for 10 years. During that period, Sian also started working as a clinic tutor at The University College of Osteopathy and still travels from Brighton to London weekly to tutor.
Sian is an experienced clinician and treats a wide variety of patients. Her time in Suffolk gave her the chance to experience treating all ages of patients and to get a good understanding of a multidisciplinary approach. Then working Covent Garden gave her the opportunity to treat a patient base largely focused on sports injuries and exercise based problems.
As part of her continued professional development, Sian is currently studying paediatric osteopathy which she hopes will further her understanding of treating babies and young children.
Jack qualified with a Masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Jack undertakes a structural approach to his work, meaning treatments often consist of “hands-on” techniques. He has a keen interest in rehabilitation and encourages patients to aid their own recovery, by providing the knowledge and tools they need, such as appropriate exercises to do at home that fit in with the patient’s lifestyle.
Jack has experience treating people of all ages with varying conditions. He has a keen interest in working with sports and exercise injuries, as he has previously played Basketball at a national level, so can personally relate to some of the common injuries that can occur.
