Callum Gaterell (M.Ost)
Registered Osteopath 8700
Callum combines a structural and a functional approach to his treatments. His broad approach allows him to successfully treat
patients of all ages from infancy to pensionable age.
As an enthusiastic sportsman, Callum has first-hand experience of
sports injuries and rehabilitation, and can understand the frustration that an injury can cause. He uses many techniques alongside
osteopathy such as Therapeutic-taping, Medical Acupuncture and sports massage. These, combined with a keen eye for identifying compensatory mechanisms preventing an injury from healing,
mean that Callum’s treatment aids recovery from injury as well as helping to prevent future problems.
As well as Osteopathy, Callum enjoys swimming, keeping fit,
walking the dog and cycling.
“I don’t believe in generic treatment plans, or isolation of specific muscles, joints and ligaments. We are all different shapes, ages and sizes with different demands placed on our bodies from varying jobs, sports and past times. That is why I tailor each treatment to my patient’s specific needs.”
Sophie Taylor (M.Ost)
Registered Osteopath 8770
Sophie also uses both structural and functional approaches and is skilled at manipulation, articulation and soft tissue massage. Sophie loves the variety that her job provides, she enjoys treating patients from all walks of life and has a specific interest in sports injuries. She is a member of the Osteopathic Sports Care Association and has treated patients of all levels in their differing sports, from the amateur athletes to the Olympic gold medalists.
Sophie prides herself on her patient rapport. It is her aim as an Osteopath and as a primary healthcare practitioner to make a positive difference to as many patients’ lives as she is able to.
As well as Osteopathy, Sophie is a keen sport and portrait photographer and enjoys horse-riding. She enjoys gun-dog training with their Labrador and competes in working tests at the weekends.
“I am passionate about the care of my patients. The aim of my treatment is to restore the body to it’s optimal function…I want my patients to walk away healthier and not just pain free.”
