She is now a children’s clinic tutor at the University College of Osteopathy and has also tutored at the Osteopathic Centre for Children.
Laura treats people of all ages drawing on her skills in both structural and cranial osteopathy. er extensive experience in movement and yoga also plays an important role in her osteopathic approach. She is also a local Nunhead Mum with two young sons so when not in the clinic is often at the park or on the school run!
Laura is recognised by most of the health insurers who cover osteopathy.
