Emily Starsmeare M.Ost DPO

Emily has been treated by Osteopaths since childhood and has always been interested in how the body works. She was initially treated successfully for a variety of sports injuries and became fascinated with anatomy, physiology and the biomechanics of injury.

She graduated from the University College of Osteopathy (previously known as the British School of Osteopathy) with a Master’s degree and has since completed the Diploma for Paediatric Osteopathy at the Osteopathic Centre for Children and postgraduate training at the Sutherland Cranial College.

During her undergraduate studies she worked in a variety of specialist osteopathic clinics including expectant mothers, sports injuries, patients with HIV and a community outreach clinic for the elderly. She also completed sports massage course Level 3 and trained in Western Medical Acupuncture.

Although she is passionate about being an osteopath for all the family, she found that she had a keen interest in treating ante and postnatal women and has completed further training in this area under the supervision of a practicing midwife.

During her time at the Osteopathic Centre for Children she enjoyed treating babies and children of all ages, particularly new-borns and children with complex needs.

She creates holistic individual treatment plans for each of her patients and including cranial techniques along with structural, functional and visceral osteopathy, if appropriate to facilitate the body’s own healing mechanisms.

When she’s not in clinic Emily is usually out hiking, loves Yoga and Pilates and is currently attempting to grow vegetables with varying success.

Emily is recognised by most of the health insurers who cover osteopathy but is not currently seeing patients covered by BUPA, AXA or Vitality.
