Osteopath & Sports Massage Therapist M.Ost DC BTEC MA (Psych)
Andreas has over 10 years experience as a physical therapist, and works primarily with city workers and sports people. He has worked with professional dance companies, football teams, and assists some city banks with staff wellbeing.
The majority of Andreas’ treatment sessions tend to be predominantly hands-on and longer (1 hour) than standard osteopathy treatments. One of the central elements of the osteopathic approach is to assist the body’s own recovery processes. In this context, Andreas adopts a holistic approach and spends time treating not only what is painful, compromised and vulnerable so as to improve circulation, promote tissue healing and speed recovery, but also aims to maximise what is working well. Andreas’ approach combines both osteopathic approaches and various sports massage techniques and can be varied depending on your individual needs and preferences. Supplementary advice given to patients on lifestyle, ergonomics, exercise and dietary issues is aimed at getting you on the road to recovery and keeping you there.
Andreas obtained his master’s degree in Osteopathy from the well-regarded University College of Osteopathy (formerly British School of Osteoapathy ) in the UK, has a master’s in Psychology (from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa) and also works as a training manager for an international nutritional company as a qualified dietary counsellor.
By law, all Osteopaths in the UK must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), who regulate the practice of Osteopathy in the UK, ensuring that all Osteopaths are appropriately trained, insured and keep up to date with continued professional development.
