Bryony is an Equine Osteopath, both a practitioner and a lecturer in the subject at the European School of Osteopathy.
She provides an expert solution for owners to help resolve back pain, improve & maintain performance and support injury recovery for their horses. Alongside this she can offer informative talks to groups and clubs on related topics such as exercises, back care basics and anatomy.
Working extensively across SW London, Surrey and Somerset she provides a well respected service due to her passion for thorough examinations, bespoke treatments and quick results. She also works in close partnership with vets, farriers, saddlers and other therapists to ensure a truly horse centered approach to recovery and performance.
The horse is always at the heart of her sessions, sessions are done at the horses pace and force is never used. Osteopathy is a gentle and effective form of manual therapy. We use specialist mobilisations and soft tissue releases alongside technical and unique (yet never forceful) joint manipulations to optimise straightness, balance and freedom
Osteopathy is an incredibly highly regulated profession and Bryony is proudly GOsC, AAO and RAMP’s registered giving you peace of mind that the highest level of education and on going CPD standards have been met. Bryony holds a first class degree in Osteopathy (as well as Zoology) plus a Post Graduate Diploma in Animal Osteopathy from the OCA.
