Fiona has an extensive sporting history, having swum competitively as a child, and competed in gymnastics at the elite level. She spent many years rock climbing and downhill skiing, but now focuses on cycling, swimming and cross-country skiing. Various sporting injuries led to an interest in manual medicine, and Osteopathy’s goal of helping the body express its inherent self-healing mechanisms really appealed to her.
Fiona enjoys treating people of all ages, and uses a wide variety of techniques, both direct and indirect. She has completed a number of post-graduate courses in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field, including three courses run by the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation, and Phases 1 to 5 and Treatment of Children 1 and 2 in Biodynamic Osteopathy. Areas of interest include headaches and migraines, shoulder and knee problems, pre and post-natal issues, and post-surgical recovery (Osteopathy may be of great help in facilitating lymphatic drainage and tissue healing). She particularly loves helping people who have tried everything else but just haven’t been able to get relief for their complaint.
When not running around after her three young boys, she enjoys gardening, reading and cooking.
