Kathi as an Osteopath
I have worked as an Osteopath since 2015, but my fascination with the body and it’s movement has been a lifelong one. My special interests are treating the hip and shoulder.
Driven by my own struggles after various surgeries and complications, I first discovered Tai Chi and Martial Arts and was lucky enough to have a brilliant teacher with an immense understanding of bio-mechanics, leading me to Osteopathy as my profession.
The combination of Osteopathic training, personal experience and regular continual professional development (CPD) is what informs my approach to treatment.
My aim for any course of treatment is more than just getting you temporary relief; it is to help you find what contributes to your problem and to find solutions that you can utilize to continually help yourself. Most of the time that means you’ll be asked to exercise and practice at home to implement changes.
Kathi as just Kathi
When not at work, you would find me with my animal family or driving the horsebox.
I have also studied Tai Chi and Martial Arts since 2008; although quite a bit less in the last few years – the animals do take up a big chunk of time.
Even though I have successfully competed, I’d rather use the Martial Arts for my personal and physical development. I am a qualified coach, but stopped teaching in 2019 due to time constraints.
I do still teach the anatomy/bio-mechanics part of our inter-club Tui Na courses (ITEC accredited).
Apart from that – in my time off, I love to every now and again try other activities; I quite enjoy various watersports, hiking or bouldering.
