M.Ost, D.O, Mov Nat Cert, Dip Sport Ex Sci.
Hi there - I'm Dan, a British trained osteopath who currently resides in Cronulla, Sydney.
I'd love to tell you a bit about myself, how I became an osteopath and why I decided to move to Cronulla.
Before Osteopathy I achieved the British certification in Sport and Exercise Science. I then expanded into Physical Training and Massage Therapy.
I found that although these approaches helped clientele, they still did not give me the knowledge he needed to effectively manage patients with pain. The next step for me was to identify an effective non invasive modality to holistically reduce pain, and improve function. That's where I discovered Osteopathy.
I completed my Masters' degree in Osteopathy at the European School of Osteopathy in England in 2010. I was trained in both classical and contemporary Osteopathic philosophies. This included cranial (Sacral) osteopathy, paediatrics, obstetrics, visceral, myofascial, functional, sports osteopathy, rehabilitation, soft tissue, spinal and peripheral joint mobilisation/manipulation.
My first osteopathy gig was at a clinic in Kent, England. I then travelled over to British Columbia, Canada to work there as well. In these clinics I developed a love for both educating, treating and managing patients with up to date evidence based practice.
Since then I gained post graduate certifications in dry needling, developmental kinesiology (DNS) and natural movement (Mov Nat).
Although practicing as a full time Osteopath, I still retain my drive for physical training and movement. I compete in many adventure races, half marathons and once I even cycled from London to Paris for charity.
In my free time you'll find me out in nature rock climbing, hiking, surfing and barefoot running.. This allows me to utilise components of strength and conditioning with functional practical movement.
I arrived in Cronulla early 2015 with a view to combine elements of evidence based functional exercise rehabilitation with a holistic Osteopathic manual therapy approach. Cronulla appealed to me as it has everything I need to enjoy life to it's fullest - surf, beach, national parks and an all round great vibe. There was also one more thing which I never got back home - sun!
