John Read D.O. M.Ost

Osteopath

I received my masters degree in osteopathy at the European School of Osteopathy, in Kent, and I hold full membership of the Institute of Osteopathy

which is the UK’s professional membership organisation for registered Osteopaths. I am also registered with the General Osteopathic Council. General Osteopathic Council Institute of Osteopathy.

My approach involves working closely with each patient to identify the tissue causing pain whilst considering any relevant predisposing factors. I endeavour to utilise knowledge I have acquired through my varied and non-traditional background, which allows me to remain open minded and holistic with my examination and treatment plans which are tailored to individuals. I feel this approach allows me to obtain optimum results for my clients.

Currently I base my treatment on a combination of stronger, structural techniques and a more gentle functional approach. I am more than willing to explain this in further detail if required including explanation of the mechanisms behind each technique.
