She is an ex Kent hockey player and still enjoys taking part in a wide range of sports, which is probably why sh likes treating sports related injuries too. Helens interest in the beneficial effects of yoga has resulted in further studies on the combined effect of yoga with osteopathy. As with all of our team, she has continued to add to her skills and is qualified to use dry needling techniques, which can offer effective pain relief for acute conditions.
Helen treats a wide range of patients and conditions here and is a clinic tutor at the ESO, she has become a popular member of our professional, caring  and effective osteopathic team.
