When I, Brian came into osteopathy it was as the result of suffering with low back pain for nearly one year with no relief. The difference that osteopathic treatment made to my life was such that I decided I must learn this skill to help others in the same situation.
I trained for four years at the British School of Osteopathy in London qualifying in 1990. Since that day I have worked to help my patients, over 7000 to date, deal with their pains and aches. If we cannot help a patient we will always refer them back to their Doctor or to the most appropriate therapist whom we believe may be able to help them.
We started dancing together back in 2005. We were asked by some members of a couple of churches who knew us if we would start a class for them, which we did.
We decided that it was such good fun that we went on to take our teachers qualification with the ISTD.
He loves to make jam, bread, cheese and to wash it down-red wine.
He also loves to take photos of wildlife and nature then use them to write books.
She loves growing her own vegetables along with gardening. She loves making all sorts of pickles, especially onions. She also loves baking and making sweets.
I, Shirley have been obsessed with massage from about the age of 14. I would sit on the top of the sofa and massage my dad’s shoulders and neck. Having worked with the Inland Revenue for plenty of years, realising office work was not for me, I went to college part-time whilst working to train and qualify as a therapist. I have taken courses and workshops in several styles to enable me to treat each client as an individual without having to follow a ‘format’ or ‘routine’. I have been working in this field for 22 years and love every minute of it. I also offer foot (I love feet!) and hand reflexology to those who do not or cannot benefit from massage. I teach fitness and dance, both of which were (and still are) my hobbies before I decided to teach them.
