Justin works Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and alternate Sundays from 9am - 9pm.
Having qualified in Osteopathy in 2017, Justin is currently practising as an Osteopath, and accepting new clients within this discipline. He combines both structural and cranial osteopathic approaches, to help patients with lower and upper back problems, neck pain and headaches, sports injuries and everyday aches and pains. Osteopathy isn't just about back-ache; it can be used, literally, from head to toe, to relieve many kinds of musculo-skeletal problems.
Now with many years of training in other complementary therapies behind him, you can expect a multifaceted and well informed holistic treatment as he continues to draw on his other training. Justin originally qualified in Sports and Remedial Massage and Holistic Massage.
Another of our directors, Justin qualified as an Osteopath in January 2017, after 4 years of full-time study at the University College of Osteopathy (formerly known as the British School of Osteopathy). Like all Osteopaths, he is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC reg no 9030). He continues to further his knowledge with regular CPD, including courses at the Sutherland College of Cranial Osteopathy.
"My career as a therapist started in 2009. After 2 decades working as a Production Manager on television documentaries and dramas, I decided it was time for a change. My first qualification was an intensive Acupuncture course at the Healing and Acupuncture College under the tutelage of Jamie Hedger. Soon after that I qualified with ITEC in Holistic Massage and then Sports Massage, after which I continued adding a range of remedial and therapeutic massage techniques. Osteopathy seemed a natural direction for me. Having had osteopathic treatment for my own back problems in the past, I'd always thought it would be an interesting career - never thinking at the time that I might have the chance to pursue it. But here we are.
One aspect of being a therapist I most enjoy is spending time with patients. GPs rarely get to spend more than 10 minutes with you. We have the luxury of spending up to an hour and it's often not until the second half of a treatment that we might discover something that might give us a further clue as to what the problem is or how best we can treat."
