Sarah specialises in the treatment of disc injury and nerve problems leading to either leg (sciatica) or arm pain.
I have been practising Osteopathy for 16 years and are registered with the General Osteopathic Council as well as a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
The techniques I use are based on current medical research gained from regularly updating my learning by attending post graduate courses, regional osteopathic meetings and study groups (I have completed 15 days of courses in the 2018 alone!).
I aim to provide a professional service within a safe and caring environment and keep the patient at the centre of what I do. I want people to know that I have their best interests at heart and aim to treat everyone I see with patience, understanding and empathy.
I specialise in the treatment of disc injury and nerve problems leading to either leg (sciatica) or arm pain. The practice uses spinal decompression therapy – a non-surgical traction based treatment that has been shown to be 86% effective in research.
This is normally combined with specialist techniques designed to release restrictions in nerves either down the leg or arm. Sarah treats adults and children and babies.
A variety of treatments are used according to the needs of the patient including:
- Pilates based exercise, Theraband, Swiss Balls
- Postural, lifestyle & nutritional advice
- Mobilisations and joint manipulations
- Soft tissue massage and stretching
- Gentle fascial (connective tissue) techniques
- Ultra sound, TENS machines
- Variety of taping methods – myofascial, sports, McConnell
I have been receiving acupuncture treatments with Ivan while undergoing chemotherapy, for side effects such as sleep disturbances. Ivan has always been very considerate, well informed and intuitive to the underlying causes, and the acupuncture results have been immediate with lasting effects. Ivan has always been very professional in his treatments, making me feel very comfortable and at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend an acupuncture treatment with him, the treatment won’t cause disappointment.
