Our People

Our osteopaths and physiotherapists are talented people who are highly trained and have been practicing for many years. We all undertake additional training every year to maintain our knowledge and skills, we are registered with our relevant professional bodies and are properly insured.

We are all able to treat a wide range of conditions and complaints and we all have special areas of interest and experience. We are certain that whatever you bring us, we have experience of treating it.

Given the job we do you would excpect us to be active, and we are! Between us we have a variety of active interests such as running, swimming, climbing, road cycling, mountain biking, hillwalking, orienteering, horse riding, rugby, and football. Some of us have competed at high levels and some of us still do.
