Damian was awarded his Masters in Osteopathy from the renowned British School of Osteopathy, which has an excellent reputation, particularly for what is called ‘Structural Osteopathy’. This is the best known form of osteopathy and concentrates on understanding the interplay of forces through joints muscles and soft-tissues. Treatment uses articulation (Movement of joints to gradually increase range of motion), soft-tissue work (forms of massage type treatment to muscles and other soft-tissues) and manipulation (very small but fast movements of a joint which may result in an audible pop or click).
As an osteopath Damian is interested in why the dysfunction has occurred and will undertake a holistic review of the patient to address any asymmetries or imbalances, this will encompass more than just the musculoskeletal system and we may discuss any lifestyle factors which may contribute to your presentation.

Laurent has been working as a massage therapist since 2017, but his interest in massage and bodywork started well before then, regularly giving back/neck rubs to friends, family and colleagues. During this time he developed his intuitive sense for massage, along with an understanding of the discomfort and suffering so many people experience due to long hours spent standing or working at a computer, poor posture, untreated injuries, and the stress of day-to-day life in these challenging times.
Having personally experienced soft tissue dysfunction and injury including a compacted lumbar spine, Laurent has always been strongly motivated to find solutions to these and other musculoskeletal problems. This led him to follow his vocational calling, training formally at The London School of Massage where he obtained his ITEC Level 3 massage therapy qualification followed by further qualifications including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and lymphatic drainage. This range of qualifications allows Laurent to offer a treatment truly tailored to each client’s individual requirements. His approach to massage is holistic, so rather than just treating the symptoms, he will look to treat the whole person.
Always keen to expand his knowledge and skills, Laurent recently completed his ITEC Level 5 in Sports Massage Therapy at City Lit. He is a full member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).
