John & Arturo
John has over twenty years of osteopathic experience, and tutored technique and in the clinic of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine for five years. Originally from East London, after travels abroad and time living elsewhere, he settled in Bethnal Green to live and work in 2001, and has since experienced the enormous changes to Tower Hamlets and Hackney. He enjoys treating all ages from infants to older people and is as comfortable with direct mechanical osteopathic manipulations as he is with gentle and subtle cranial osteopathic techniques.
Arturo graduated with a Masters of Osteopathy in 2012 and as an experienced osteopath, enjoys working with adults with a wide variety of issues. Through post graduate courses and work in gym environments he has honed his skills in the treatment and management of sporting injuries, and uses this knowledge to help all of his patients, whatever the cause of their problem. In addition, a period of four years shadowing and assisting physiotherapists and midwifes as part of the Women’s Health Team at University College Hospital London (UCLH), has provided him with a unique skill-set in the management of pain in and around pregnancy.
