At health provides osteopathy in Covent Garden & Finchley. We believe that your health is the most important thing you have in life, after all, you only get one body. Therefore we want to take a moment to talk about some of our principles, how we believe healthcare should be and what you can expect to experience should you choose At Health to help you on your journey to optimum health.
The first thing you can expect is a partner for your journey out of pain. We appreciate how scary being in pain can be, whether it’s your first ever injury or you’ve had to cope with it for decades. It’s because of this that you can expect to receive support from us whenever you need it.
The second thing we strive to do is educate. This comes in a variety of forms. Whether it’s through The Rehab Centre where we bring you educational content and rehabilitation advice, or what to do day to day to help reduce the risk of pain, we understand that the more you know about your pain, the less it will scare you.
A promise from our practitioners that they will continue to learn and do their upmost to constantly give you the best care available, and when they don’t feel they can, a promise that they will help you find someone who can.
Andrew began his career in health care in 2008 when he trained at Premier Training to become a personal trainer and sports massage therapist. It was whilst practicing as a sports massage therapist that he found his love for manual therapy. In order to improve upon his skill as a masseur he began a masters degree at the British School of Osteopathy.
Whilst undertaking his masters degree, Andrew continued adding to his skill set by training in medical acupuncture, kinesiology taping and ACT therapy and uses these different disciplines to help his clients and approach them all in a holistic way.
Since completing his masters degree Andrew has continued to study not just the field of medicine, but the philosophies behind healthcare. His treatments during treatment involve osteopathic techniques, massage, visceral, myofascial release and western medical acupuncture and combines these with variety of exercises, stretches and post treatment advice so that his patients not only recover from their injury, but have the knowledge and skillset to know what to do if their injury ever arises again.
Andrew is also a sports and martial arts enthusiast. As a child he gained a black belt in Shotokan Karate, and then trained in Wushu. Whilst practicing martial arts he also trialed for the British national swim team.
Lara recently qualified with a master’s degree in osteopathy from the European School of Osteopathy and has a level 3 diploma in Sports Massage Therapy. She has always been interested in
healthcare and helping people, reason why she underwent pharmaceutical studies before becoming an osteopath. Lara enjoys getting to the source of her patients’ complaints and uses education, lifestyle, advice and exercise as complements to her hands-on treatment to assist her patients back into
health. She has a special interest in the biopsychosocial factors affecting pain. She uses a variety of osteopathic techniques adapted to each individual patient, including structural, visceral, cranial and functional approaches.
Lara is also passionate about sports and dance. On her free time, she can be seen dancing salsa, running, swimming, riding a bike, playing volleyball or trying new sports and activities. She has suffered several sport injuries that made her stop playing her favourite sports for a while, being able to understand and empathise with the frustration of being in pain and not
being able to practice your favourite activities.
If that’s not enough she can welcome you to our clinic in English, Spanish or French.
Beatrice’s career in osteopathy began in 2016 with wanting to understand more about the body’s healing capacities and helping others to functionally regain health. Her treatment style varies from gently moving joints and muscle tissue to stretching and direct manipulations and addressing imbalances in the body via rehabilitation exercises. She finds value in looking at the whole person and gives lifestyle and exercise advice where needed. She is also trained in visceral and cranio-sacral approaches and has worked with expectant mothers for various pains associated with pregnancy, and other women’s health conditions. After graduating from the European School of Osteopathy, Beatrice trained in Pilates Matwork and uses this in conjunction with osteopathy to ensure a speedy recovery in her patients and a balanced approach to wellness, as well as involving patients in their own treatment plan.
She tailors every treatment accordingly to patients’ goals and needs, and she always considers the impact that pain has both on the physical body and psychologically. She can help with treatment and management of shoulder, neck and back pain, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, headaches, wrist and elbow pain, pregnancy related aches, and headaches. She firmly believes that with each injury the body initiates its innate healing capacities, and helps patients find their way back to this natural process, both with treatment and advice. She will continue her professional development in areas such as shockwave treatment, women’s health and injury prevention.
Beatrice has a background in mixed martial arts, boxing, swimming, aikido, and has studied continental philosophy for two years prior to studying osteopathy. She has a keen interest in health technology, particularly medical and wellness devices.
