Gemma graduated from The British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in 2005. This is the largest and oldest school of osteopathy in the UK and is respected throughout the world for its high-quality, innovative methods of education.
Gemma’s approach to her treatment is mainly structural, using her many qualifications that allow her to treat a wide range of people with varying conditions. These include, when appropriate, sports massage, medical dry needling (a Western form of traditional Chinese acupuncture) and cranial osteopathy to name but a few.
Since she broke her own wrist snowboarding, Gemma understands the importance of aftercare treatment and has developed a strong personal interest in rehabilitation, especially following fractures, breaks and serious joint injuries where osteopathic treatment can help speed up recovery and allow the joint to regain full strength and mobility.
Gemma has a very holistic approach to her treatment and tends to include a lot of soft tissue techniques, sports massage and articulation to joints to minimise manipulation (joint popping and clicking). She has treated a wide range of patients from babies, children, pregnant women, athletes and the elderly.
In 2004 Gemma worked with fellow Osteopaths treating runners who completed the London Marathon. In addition to this she has been involved in treating both cricket & rugby players from professional level clubs.
