Celia Crook, BSc, B.Ost.
Celia is a fully qualified Registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council. She qualified from the BSO London in 2005 and has been in practice since then. For Celia, osteopathy is about promoting health and well-being of the body, mind and spirit. Her aim is to support patients through their healing process in whatever way is best for the individual.
She has passed a post graduate qualification in Cranial Osteopathy. Celia also has a Degree in Applied Psychology.
Her treatment approach varies according to the patient and their symptoms and uses all osteopathic modalities when appropriate.
Celia uses cranial osteopathy to gently balance and align the body. This form of treatment only requires light contact with the patient. Though very subtle cranial osteopathy is profoundly effective.
She applies structural osteopathic techniques where necessary, which include muscle stretching, deep massage, repetitive joint movements and small, quick, joint releasing 'clicks'.
There are many ways to aid the body in its healing and so treatment is specific to each patient's needs.
Victoria Davies, MSc. BSc (Hons)Ost.
Victoria is a fully qualified Registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council.
Having originally trained in Biochemistry and Environmental Biotechnology, my interest in Osteopathy began when I had treatment following a car accident. I had always wanted to work for myself, and the combination of the application of anatomy and physiology to physical complaints and the ability to really help people appealed enormously to me. I completed the 5 year BSc course at the London School of Osteopathy, graduating in 2005. In the following 10 years I ran a successful practice in Cambridge, helping hundreds of patients of all ages to live life to the fullest. I specialised in treating pregnant and post-partum women, babies and the elderly. I also qualified as a Reiki therapist during that time.
I am a keen wild swimmer and have ridden horses all my life. I also enjoy walking my dog and cycling in the South Cambridgeshire countryside.
