Her treatment encompasses a range of techniques including: structural Osteopathy, injury rehabilitation and therapeutic and sports massage therapy. Treatment sessions are tailored to suit the individual needs of the patient, they aim to restore function and encourage the healing process offering relief from pain and stress.
Hannah has worked for the NHS with patients suffering with neurological conditions and trauma, it is during this time she found a passion for injury and rehabilitation. She uses these skills in her work as an Osteopath – combining exercise programmes to help restore and maintain function.
She also has a keen research interest in work-related postural adaptations and her thesis focused on bodily adaptations during prolonged desk and computer work.
On top of this, Hannah is qualified as a Sports Massage and Remedial Massage Therapist from the Oxford School of Sports Massage with a level 5 BTEC
professional diploma. She uses massage therapy to treat a range of conditions, releasing muscle tension and restoring balance. Hannah has a passion for hockey, open water swimming, and rowing, both playing and working with different teams at various sporting events. Since graduating, Hannah has attained additional qualifications in Medical Acupuncture and Kinesiology Taping which she integrates into her personalised treatment plans in both Sports Massage and osteopathy as part of a holistic approach to patient wellbeing.
Hannah is qualified in Pregnancy Massage. Massage during Pregnancy is not only for relaxation but offers physical benefits as well. There are many postural changes throughout the spine, pelvis, and hips during pregnancy which can lead to muscular imbalance. Massage can help these regions to regain balance and relieve discomfort.
In search for better rehabilitation techniques led Hannah to train in Clinical Pilates with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. Within the Clinical Pilates (121 Pilates) sessions my main focus is to produce an individual treatment program to maximise success in treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Hannah has found that this approach is particularly useful in treating complex long-standing problems.
