Having always had an interest in science and the will to help others I was naturally lead to the health industry. My search for an in-depth profession that engages directly and deeply with the patient ended when I found Osteopathy. Eventually I found myself in Maidstone. The catalyst and inspiration for that was my uncle, also an Osteopath, who mentored me during my studies as we lived together.
Before deciding on Osteopathy, I was studying in the Department of Medical Laboratories at the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. I graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 2014 with an Integrated Masters degree. As a result, I have worked in several different clinics with various approaches, having seen and helped patients from all age groups and walks of life.
Ever since I graduated I have been striving to develop my understanding of the complexity of the human body and refine my techniques to assisting it to heal and sustain itself and it’s balance.
I’m consistently developing and growing my Cranial and Visceral Osteopathy. For this, my participation in the curriculum of the The Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy and that of Dr Jean-Marie Beuckels respectively has been both essential and most enjoyable.
I have completed the course of the Osteopathic Centre for Children and received an Award in Paediatric Osteopathy in February 2021.
The alternative thinking of Osteopathy has made me think outside the box even further. So, I endeavoured into the world of Dry Needling. With that, not only did I obtain another very useful skill but I also learned and understood much more about the mechanisms that underline and control pain regulation.
