Matthew is an Osteopath, Pilates instructor and sports massage therapist.
Growing up he was always active taking part with swimming, football, badminton and athletics. He has always been around sports and sporting injuries. Matthew experienced low back pain after playing football as a teenager at which point saw an Osteopath, Physiotherapist and Chiropractor. For him he found the Osteopath treatment to be very effective and loved the narrative behind the treatment. The hands on treatment and alternative to take medication for the pain was attractive. However it wasn't until his late twenties when he decided to change careers and retrain as an Osteopath.
He is a dynamic Osteopath who delivers bespoke treatments aimed to reducing pain. Helping you feel better and empowering you to pro-actively manage your own symptoms.
Matthew wants to know how he can add value. It may be that you have seen other practitioners and felt some benefit but your symptoms are still persisting. In which case, it’s time to try something different.
His Osteopathic approach focuses on identifying the patient’s functional and training issues which could have contributed to injury. Matthew aims to address your constitution and questions how healing times could be increased. He uses a range of hands-on techniques including muscular stretching, joint articulation and manipulation (only when appropriate and always with consent).
He believes Pilates aligns well with the osteopathic narrative to increase postural awareness. Also to perform meaningful movements and stay well. The sessions work well for patients recovering from injuries and surgery to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility. Pilates can pro-actively prevent injuries by increasing body awareness. Matthew gained his Instructor qualifications from the Australian, Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute.
As a Massage Therapist he delivers professional, effective treatments focused on reducing muscular tension to support active lifestyles and demanding job roles. He has worked with a range of athletes (marathon runners, triathletes and volleyball players to name a few) supporting them with regular treatment to help clients achieve their goals.
Outside of work Matthew loves a challenge and has completed his first marathon and climbed Kilimanjaro in 2019. Moreover he enjoys travelling, nature and light hearted conversations with patients.

Eleonora is an Osteopath, Nutritionist, Pilates instructor and Sports massage therapist.
She is very passionate about her job and she is a firm believer that each person is unique and should be treated as such. She has a holistic approach to treatment which seeks to identify and address the cause of the presenting problem, rather than focusing only on relieving the symptoms. Eleonora mainly uses hands-on techniques and gives advice on lifestyle, nutrition and Pilates exercises.
Eleonora graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (now University College of Osteopathy) and then went on to complete a postgraduate course in Traditional Osteopathic Methods which enhances the concept of ‘whole’: a specific treatment that enables the body to restore posture and homeostasis, improve health and reduce pain.
The need for an even more comprehensive approach to health lead Eleonora to seek further knowledge and answers in to nutrition. Her personal experience in dealing with a skin condition turned into a deep interest in how a balanced diet can have a positive impact on our general health. Eleonora graduated as a Nutritional Therapist from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
Her education in rehabilitative care and nutrition progressed from her original training as a fitness and Pilates instructor. She has been teaching Pilates Matwork classes and apparatus sessions on an individual and group basis for the last 13 years in Italy, Australia and in the UK. Eleonora believes that Pilates is not just about flexibility or strength, it’s about awareness, knowing how to optimise movements in everyday tasks to prevent injuries.
Eleonora’s first accreditation was a Diploma in Physiotherapy back in Italy which allowed her to gain experience working with pre and post surgery patients, rehabilitative care and massage.
She also qualified in the Mezieres method, a whole body approach that focuses on increasing the functionality of movement and reducing pain through specific postural techniques designed to elongate the whole back muscular chain of your body and encourage neutral spine alignment.
Eleonora speaks fluent English and Italian. She is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and is fully insured.
