Karen originally trained as a general nurse from Liverpool John Moores University.
It was here, where she became extremely interested in the human body and its anatomic functioning and structure. She was also interested in what other alternative therapies were available to health, apart from what modern medicine had to offer. With this in mind, she decided to undertake a new career-pathway and became an Osteopath.
Karen graduated from the highly acclaimed European School of Osteopathy with a BSc
(Hons) in Osteopathy. This training entailed a four year full-time degree, gaining experience in structural, classical, cranial and visceral osteopathy.
Karen now uses a classical and cranial approach in her practice, which incorporates a broad range of techniques to treat each individual patient. This includes a variety of gentle hands-on treatment, such as articulation, joint mobilisation and balancing techniques. She particularly enjoys Osteopathy for pregnant mums, babies and infants. However, she treats people from lots of different age groups, complaining of anything from back pain, discal injuries, headaches to shoulder injuries.
Karen has undertaken a lot of post-graduate studies since leaving university, especially in the field of cranial, visceral and neurodynamics. Continuous professional development is a legal requirement of the osteopathic profession, which ensures that their training, education and practice are of a very high standard.
Karen encourages patients to have an active role in their own health, by educating and providing guidance, so they are able to make informed decisions on their own health. Karen also gives advice on lifestyle, diet and ergonomics.
Karen is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council UK (GOsC), the Osteopathic Council of Ireland, which are the two osteopathic governing bodies in their retrospective countries and The British Osteopathic Association.
