Olivia Rowley BOst
Structural & Cranial Osteopath
"Our bodies are rarely perfect but can often be quite easily treated to improve function and decrease discomfort."
Olivia Rowley qualified from the British School of Osteopathy with Distinction for clinical excellence in 2009. Olivia is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council and Institute of Osteopathy and has undertaken postgraduate training in Cranial and Paediatric Osteopathy at the Sutherland Cranial College and London School of Osteopathy. Olivia has also trained in dry needling and sports massage and has an interest in Migraine and headache prevention and management with recent CPD with Osteopaths for Progress in Headaches and Migraines (OPHM).
Olivia has been in practice since 2009 and has worked both privately and treating NHS patients, based in London, Brighton, Hove and Steyning.
Olivia likes to get to the cause of each patient's discomfort to help you understand why your body is behaving the way it is. Through greater understanding, manual treatment and by providing individually-tailored lifestyle and exercise advice to her patients, Olivia feels this is the key to managing current problems and avoiding future discomfort.
Having two young children of her own, Olivia is passionate about treating babies with cranial osteopathy and knows the importance of helping mothers throughout pregnancy and in the months after childbirth as their bodies adapt to postural change and the physical challenges of looking after little ones.
Olivia’s own experience growing up as a gymnast, hockey player and horse rider have taught her the legacy old sporting injuries can play and how impacts such as road traffic accidents can influence body patterns.
