About Lyndsy

Registered Osteopath and Polestar Pilates Studio Instructor

I qualified from a four year intensive bachelor's degree with honors at the prestigious British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in London and is a registered member of the General Osteopathic Council. In addition to the extensive training in osteopathy, I have a diploma in sports massage and post graduate certificates in Sport and Exercise Medicine as well as post graduate certificates in western medical acupuncture and cranial osteopathy. I currently see patients in Haslemere and Farnham in Surrey where I see a broad demographic of patients treating the elderly, pregnant women, office workers, manual workers, children, dancers, sports injuries with a wide variety of musculo-skeletal complaints.

Prior to becoming an Osteopath, I trained at the London School of Contemporary Dance and worked as a professional dancer in London for ten years, including a number of TV, film and music video credits. A back injury developed into a two year chronic pain complaint and I finally sought help from an osteopath who was able to diagnose and treat the problem successfully enabling me to return to dance training and performing.

Inspired by my own successful treatment, I began training to be an osteopath. However, after two years of working as a healthcare professional i prolapsed a disk in my lumbar spine. My osteopath suggested i try pilates to strengthen my hypermobile body which i instantly connected with. I then continued my journey with training at APPI and Polestar Pilates in matwork and Pilates studio equipment. I have more than 10 years of experience treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal complaints in various settings from GP surgeries, Pilates studios, ballet schools, private physiotherapy/osteopathy clinics and multidisciplinary practices. I enjoy seeing patients from all walks of life and believe in treating the whole person instead of just the diagnosis. I work with my patients to find the underlying cause of the problem and help my patients to understand this to avoid reoccurring episodes and chronicity. I use a variety of osteopathic techniques that include safe joint mobilisation and manipulation, soft tissue and fascial release techniques, medical acupuncture and cranial approaches. I am also studying for a psychology degree and practice yoga and Pilates every day.
