“My Osteopathic approach is not limited to sports but is tailored to each individual client. Whether it be from repetitive strain injuries caused by working long hours; posture imbalance or post road traffic accident traumas. I treat the whole body, from the neck to the feet but I am also interested in treating beyond the physical.

 

I discovered my passion for healing whilst trekking the 500 miles pilgrimage on the road to Santiago de la Compostela. The muscle pain, strain, fatigue and mental challenges I experienced on this long walk made me realise that the human body is an amazing machine and I wanted to study it more. I have always been fascinated with the ability to recognise dysfunctions in the human body. I don’t think there is a better way to express knowledge, compassion and respect from one human being to another than to heal.”

 

Stefano has treated amateur athletes through to members of the elite Team GB who have played an important role to his approach to osteopathy. He specialises in treating conditions from acute to chronic trauma and providing injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Services

Osteopathy is a patient-centred, system of healthcare. The first consultation & appointment generally lasts about 60 minutes to allow the osteopath adequate time to:

  • Listen and ask questions about your problem, your general health, other medical care you are receiving or medication you are taking, and record this in your case notes. The information you provide will be confidential.
  • Examine you properly. It is likely the osteopath will ask you to remove some of your clothing. Tell your osteopath if you are uncomfortable about this. You should expect privacy to undress and a gown or towel should be provided.
  • Ask you to make simple movements and stretches to observe your posture and mobility. Because of the body’s structure, pain or stiffness you are experiencing in one part may be linked to a problem elsewhere.
  • Examine the health of the joints, tissues and ligaments using their hands and a highly developed sense of touch called palpation.
