Osteopathy

 

Looking at the bigger picture

Osteopathy is about looking at the whole person; their lifestyle, posture, movement habits, and energy levels. It is a natural and safe way of treatment that relieves the symptoms of discomfort whilst seeking to identify the cause.

By carefully listening and observing the individual, a variety of hands-on treatments are applied, suitably tailored to each person’s body type. Osteopathy emphasises the integrated functioning of the entire musculoskeletal system and its relationship to the internal body systems and mind, thereby working towards restoring the body to its optimal state of equilibrium.

 

WHAT IT IS BEST FOR:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders i.e. muscles, ligaments, bones and joint dysfunctions.
  • Areas treatable range from:Neck, Back & Pelvis
  • Headaches, Digestive disorders & Breathing problems
  • Hips, Knees & Feet
  • Shoulder and Arm problems
  • Calf & Hamstring painJKL

 

IT CAN ALSO BE USED FOR TREATING:

  • Activity related pain e.g. dance specific, sport specific, occupational.
  • Assisting in maximising full potential in performance i.e. rectifying biomechanical faults to improve speed, co-ordination and balance.
  • Improving Posture and General mobility (range of movement)

 

Nicky trained as a professional dancer performing internationally for over 15 years, with an array of contemporary choreographers whose work has involved Abseiling, Capoeira, Tango and dancing in a lift!

Having always had a fascination with movement she retrained as an Osteopath at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2001 where she gained a degree. Nicky is the Osteopath and a quest Lecturer at London Contemporary Dance School and also works at Westminster Physiotherapy & Pilates Centre.

WHAT NICKY’S CLIENTS SAY:

“Nicky works with an honest, generous & holistic approach and has amazing intuition for the body. She has successfully treated my ten-year-old chronic hip problem which I thought was beyond help, as well as numerous other injuries. Nicky will find the root of an injury rather than just treating the symptoms. As an experienced dancer, she addresses the importance of correct dance technique which is essential for complete recovery and future injury prevention in dancers and students. I totally credit her with keeping me dancing and highly recommend her as an exceptional practitioner.” Hannah Frost, dancer and dance teacher
“I came to see Nicky because of pain in my ankle that I had had for years. Physio, surgery and cortisone injections had all been unsuccessful. Nicky looked beyond the ankle to find what was causing the pain (nothing in the ankle). I only wish I had seen her sooner. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone with an injury that no-one else has managed to get to the bottom of.” Nicola Timmins, Barrister 
“As a Pilates teacher, I have both worked with and been treated by many fantastic Osteopaths over the years, but Nicky definitely tops my list. Her sense of the body is astoundingly intuitive, and she has been invaluable in helping both me and my clients with our specific issues and injuries. I’m so pleased to have found her, and can’t thank or recommend her highly enough.” Mei Clarke, pilates instructor
