Ed graduated from the prestigious British School of Osteopathy in London in 2013.
Additionally to his Masters in Osteopathy he undertook postgraduate study in Medical Acupuncture, Pilates (mat work), Myofascial Release and Function Movement Analysis (Gray Institute – 3DMAPS®).
In his approach he uses a combination of these different elements to personally tailor treatments to help alleviate your symptoms and to generate a rehabilitation plan to help limit or prevent future issues.
His aim is to help your body get back on track as soon as possible! This in turn allows you to regain confidence in your movements and return to normal function thereby reducing the development of compensatory patterns and other knock on issues.
A key factor in recovering from pain and dysfunction is providing you with as much education about your issue as possible. Empowering you to understand what is going on and help your own recovery and to limit as much dependence on the therapist as possible. By taking this approach Ed undertakes a hands on treatment when needed and gives you ‘homework’ and coping strategies to help keep you moving and functioning well.
Comfortable clothes are recommended for appointments – sports bra/vest and leggings, shorts. This allows Ed to see how various parts of your body are moving and facilitates hands on treatment.
Ed is fully registered with and a member of the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), Institute of Osteopathy (iO) and British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS). For more information about Medical Acupuncture click here and for general information about Acupuncture click here
Ed also holds an ITEC diploma in sports massage.
Before turning to osteopathy Ed worked in hospitality and corporate IT and as such has experience in the stresses and strains that can be acquired in modern working environments.
Ed is interested in the ergonomics of the workstation and associated work stress issues, postural demands placed on the body, long term chronic degenerative conditions, and how movement and exercise can be beneficial to help individuals in their return to health.
"Dear Ed, I had no idea what an osteopath was when I entered your consultation. Half way through I wondered if it was a waste of money. But by the end I was truly impressed and felt you did me lots of good and were very precise and in tune with my body. Also I have taken care of a baby for the last 8 months and fantasised about what it would be like to be a baby myself. And your consultation was the closest thing to that. Anyway thank you, that was money very well spent. I'll come back.
