John (Clinic Director)
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.
Gervais developed an interest in osteopathy after receiving significant benefits from osteopathic treatment in his youth. Moving to the UK he studied at the European School of Osteopathy (ESO), graduating with a Masters in Osteopathy. In addition to structural osteopathic techniques, the ESO specialises in teaching the subtle techniques of Cranial and Visceral Osteopathy, that Gervais uses to supplement his work. Further qualifications in Sports Massage and Medical Acupuncture enable him to provide a broad range of techniques to support his patients.
