I am excited to be offering osteopathy in Whistler, Canada, providing the best osteopathic healthcare for all. I am an enthusiastic and experienced osteopathic practitioner treating all musculoskeletal problems.
I aim to provide the highest quality osteopathic care to all my patients. I will work with my patients to relieve their pain and restore them to their usual pain free state. I am a friendly, outgoing, caring and compassionate practitioner.
I graduated from the world renowned British School of Osteopathy in London, England in 1999 after completing a four year BSc(Hons) degree in Osteopathy.
I had sustained a serious neck injury playing rugby in 1991 and benefited greatly from osteopathic healthcare. This led to me developing an interest in the profession. I practiced for my first year in Hamilton, New Zealand and then worked in Devon, England from July 2000 until I relocated to Vancouver, Canada in September 2008. Since then I have been practicing in downtown Vancouver at the Electra Health Floor. You can find more information regarding my practices in Vancouver, Canada at my downtown osteopathy website. I moved to Whistler, Canada in August 2011; I have an additional practice here in Whistler now and maintain my Vancouver practices two days a week.
I believe that it is vital to keep up to date with further education and to that end, I regularly attends courses for continued professional development so that I can continue to offer the best care for my patients.
I have a special interest in treating headaches, whiplash and sporting injuries.
I use osteopathy as a way of detecting and treating injuries in the muscles, ligaments, fascia, nerves and joints of the body. Having a highly developed sense of touch known as palpation I will gently and specifically evaluate and treat injuries. As an osteopathic practitioner I believe that the body has the ability to heal itself and the skilled application of osteopathic techniques (massage, mobilization and soft tissue) can improve this process. I also uses cranial and visceral osteopathic techniques.
Osteopathy can be used to assist in the treatment of symptoms associated with a variety of problems including:
- Sports injuries
- Acute and chronic spinal pain
- Disc injuries
- Joint pain
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Postural complaints
- Whiplash and accident trauma
I have been married to Caroline since February 2003. She works as a wind farm development consultant. Together they enjoy outdoor pursuits such as skiing and hiking. We also enjoy fine wine and dining together.
