Shelley qualified from the British School of Osteopathy with an honours degree in July 2000. Since then Shelly has worked successfully with the private sector in the local area building a successful osteopathic practice.Osteopathy is based on active and passive examination and assessment of the structure and function of the body. Treatment is focused on the musculoskeletal system with hands on deep tissue massage, articulation and manipulation when appropriate.
Since qualifying as an osteopath, Shelley has gone on to become one of a handful of practitioners with a masters degree in osteopathic treatment of animals, mainly treating horses and dogs. Her animal work has fine tuned and built on her human osteopathic skills. Animals cannot tell you where the problem is so you have to watch their movement very carefully and palpate (touch) their bodies and study their body language to find the problem and treat them accordingly. Shelley’s animal work really has been an excellent educational tool for treating people and she has found that her osteopathy has gone from strength to strength since qualifying.
Shelley finds osteopathy exciting and dynamic. She is passionate about her job and achieving the best results for her patients.
Shelley looks forward to meeting you at the clinic.
