"The only way to do great work is to love what you do" –Steve Jobs

I have always been attracted by excellence. During my last year of high school, I was rewarded for the dissertation on “Obsession of excellence”, a motto of two Italian entrepreneurs that reached success doing what they loved and starting from nothing. Since I was young, I always felt attracted by the world of medicine. Thanks to that, I came in contact with a doctor with several years of clinical practice that was expanding his knowledge with a Master in Osteopathy. He told me that this medicine, known in Italy by a few, it would have been the turning point for lots of complaints of his patients because his aim was to solve the cause and not just the symptom. He strongly believed that Osteopathy would be considered the medicine of excellence in the future.

I was fascinated by these words and I decided to start studying Osteopathic Medicine at the International College of Osteopathic Medicine. During my studies I had over 1300 hours of clinical apprenticeship and I treated more than 200 patients. I took the opportunity to study the visceral and cranial field in depth, with specific training sessions, tutorials and conferences.This incredible 5 years of study not only gave me the highest academic achievement obtainable in Osteopathic Medicine, but also gave me the chance of improving my curriculum with a recognised-quality Master at North East Surrey College Of Technology (NESCOT). Nowadays, I am enrolled in the General Osteopathic Council (G.O.s.C.) and I am practicing in line with the high standard required.

I am committed to excellence in my practice and I love what I am doing, that is why I do great work.

We are delighted to announce that Marco Antonetto has been shortlisted for the Institute of Osteopathy's 2018 Associate of the Year award. These annual awards celebrate high quality and innovative care delivered by osteopaths for the people of their communities. The Associate of the Year award recognises osteopaths who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to providing first-class patient-centred care, hard work and innovation to supporting the health of the people in their local communities.

The Institute of Osteopathy (iO) is the professional membership organisation representing over two thirds of osteopaths in the UK.

ALESSIA IANNIBELLI

D.O. M.Ost. RQ (UK) M.C.B.

Alessia has studied in Italy for 5 years in the prestigious International College of Osteopathic Medicine in Milan and she also achieved the Master in Osteopathy (M.Ost), the highest academic achievement obtainable by an osteopath, at North East Surrey College of Technology (Surrey, UK) in partnership with Kingston University. Finally, in 2016 after 2 yearscourse she has also obtained the diploma in therapeutic massages (M.C.B) at Ecolife S.r.l. (Milano).

Alessia is enrolled in the General Osteopathic Council (G.O.S.c.), the UK osteopaths department, which is responsible for certifying high standards of practice of its members. During her studying she had over 1300 hours of clinical training and over 250 treatments at the ICOM and NESCOT clinic, which allowed her to reach high standards of practice and confidence in the patient approach.

Her course of study focused in both muscles-skeletal and functional approach (visceral and craniosacral techniques). Thanks to the very high level of preparation in the last year of her studies, she also had hours of clinical training in the paediatric ICOM clinic.

Alessia has been in the sports world for years as an athlete (cycling) and this has led her to specialise in this field, although in recent years her attitude towards children has led her to design new challenges. In fact, her new project is to attend a paediatric master course, in order to follow the growing until the beginning and in pregnant woman.

Her goal is to provide each patient with individualised osteopathy care and her principles are to share her knowledge and experience so that each patient can have a better understanding of their condition and a strategy to manage pain.

Hydrotherm Massage

Hydrotherm massage is massage where you lie on cushions of warm water. This provides a uniquely luxurious and unsurpassed massage experience for yourself. It allows you to remain lying on your back throughout the session without having to move, this is helpful if you are currently in pain, or find it difficult to lie on your front. The warm water gradually relaxes your muscles which enables the massage to relax you even further.

Pregnancy Hydrotherm Massage

Massage during pregnancy is a joy to give and receive, there are so many changes that happen during pregnancy it truly is the miracle of life. Some of the benefits are reducing blood pressure, decreasing stress and releasing muscle tension. It also contains that special bond where baby responds to the touch, a really beautiful experience.

The Bowen Technique

The Bowen Technique is a fascinating treatment, it is a simple, yet highly specific, hands-on procedure which has been widely practised in Australia since its development in the 1950's by Tom Bowen, an industrial engineer. Bowen Technique procedures were initially directed at acute musculoskeletal complaints such as work- and sports-related injuries. It soon became apparent, however, that these procedures had a demonstrable effect on many chronic medical problems, which include a litany of environmental medical syndromes.

 

"Thank you so much for my session today - I have had such a lovely day and know that I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight! I am so pleased I took up your offer last year and have started a little journey of discovery and unwinding at the same time. Thank you."
Cara - Surrey

"I was in a desperate state of suffering a phase of insomnia over the Christmas period and by chance found Amanda for a reflexology treatment. I can't recommend Amanda highly enough. I walked out after one hour of treatment with a much calmer mind, followed by a good night's sleep. The value of that feeling of waking up after a good night's sleep cannot be put into words, but everyone who has experienced insomnia will know exactly what I mean! 10 days on and I'm still sleeping! Thank you Amanda!"
