Essi graduated from the European School of Osteopathy, Kent with a Master’s degree. She enjoys treating all kinds of people of any age with a special interest in acute and chronic back, neck and shoulder pain as well as headaches due to her own experiences of migraines.
Essi uses a biopsychosocial model, meaning that she identifies all the factors contributing to patient’s complaint and not only focusing on relieving the symptoms. Together with the patient she tailors a management plan, which can be carried out from the clinic.
During Essi’s osteopathic treatments she uses various techniques including:
- Joint manipulation/ articulations
- Soft tissue massage/ stretching techniques
- Cranial Osteopathy
- Visceral Osteopathy
- Medical Acupuncture (dry needling)
- Kinesiology taping
- Sports taping
After Essi’s graduation as an osteopath, she continued studying with th Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute and she now offers rehabilitation Pilates classes on a 1:1 basis. Pilates is a form of exercise to improve posture, muscle tone, flexibility and proprioception. It is particularly useful to those suffering with ongoing aches and pains.
In the past, she was a keen dancer and athletic instructor for children giving her insight to sport related injuries. In her free time Essi plays the saxophone; she enjoys sport related activities such as yoga, running and gym. On holidays Essi likes hiking and has a passion for skiing and scuba diving.
