Andrew is a graduate of the 5 years, part-time Bachelors of Osteopathy programme offered by the College of Osteopaths at Staffordshire University. As part of his training, Andrew completed 1500 hours in the college’s Clinic before being able to register as a qualified UK Osteopath.
Andrew decided to re-train as an Osteopath after a 20-year career as an HGV driver had left him with poor posture and numerous other musculoskeletal complaints that required the services of an Osteopath to help to correct. It was witnessing the efficacy of Osteopathic treatment first hand that convinced Andrew to re-train.
Andrew works gently to find the areas of you’re the body that is blocked or restricted and seeks to ease those areas into moving well.
Away from the clinic, Andrew enjoys many varied activities including:
- mountain biking
- suspension training
Andrew also has a passion for history, with the late Roman republic being a firm favorite. Also, Andrew and his partner are house slaves to two rescued ex-racing greyhounds and enjoy many hours of pack time exploring the great outdoors.
Osteopaths must by law undertake continuing professional development equivalent to 30 hours per year. Andrew recently undertook two days of training in London with CPD Today at the London School of Osteopathy.
