BONIFACE VERNEY-CARRON

Boniface graduated from the European School of Osteopathy after two years in medical university in France and four years osteopathic training in the UK. He has been practising in England for ten years and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

He started his career in 2004 at the IMC, the first Integrated Medical Centre in Europe, where he was exposed to numerous interesting and unusual cases. His experience there convinced him that the key to providing the best care for his patients is to broaden his understanding and work collaboratively with doctors and other complementary therapists. Where appropriate, this might include working with practitioners in psychotherapy, NLP, Yoga, Sophrology, Reflexology, massage, Pilates and Chinese or Ayurvedic medicine.

Boniface’s mixed conventional and osteopathic training gives him an unusual approach to treating his patients allowing him to concentrate on the origin of symptoms, rather than focusing on the symptoms themselves. By treating patients this way, he can help them achieve more lasting relief from discomfort.

Today Boniface aims at developing further in his different fields of expertise:

  • Integrated Osteopathy
  • Sports Injuries
  • Pregnancy Care
  • Newborn Care (Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy)

Boniface has been focused on helping pregnant women since 2005. He works in close collaboration with the director of The Birth Company Dr. Gibb, who helped him gain unique experience with pre and post natal patients. Boniface believes that understanding the changes associated with pregnancy itself can help one have a happy and healthy pregnancy. He dedicates his care to helping both the mum and the baby alike.

Boniface was certified as a Grade 2 GARUDA teacher in 2008. Garuda is a blend of dance, yoga and pilates put together by his friend and teacher James D’Silva. It is an amazing tool from which Boniface benefits for his own health as well as in his practice. He uses this approach to diagnose his patients’ mobility and coordination in relation to their environment allowing him to give his patients a chance to work on the interaction between their biotype and their dynamic posture.

Boniface uses the full range of techniques offered by an Integrated Osteopath:

  • Adjustments, mobilisation and soft tissue work
  • Visceral osteopathy: gentle manipulation of
    abdominal organs to release referred pains and
    improve their function
  • Cranio-sacral osteopathy
  • Cupping

OLIVIA DE MAIGRET

Olivia‘s emphatic and responsive nature reflects strongly in her work as an Osteopath. A classically trained dancer and accomplished horsewoman, it was through her own sporting injuries that she first discovered osteopathy. After studying medicine in her native south of France, Olivia decided to pursue a more holistic career outside of traditional medicine, which led her to complete studies in London at the British School of Osteopathy.

Olivia’s methodology centres around healing and the synchronization between body and mind. She tackles the complexity of the human body with a positive approach and attitude and is a very reliable and skilled practitioner. As a fully qualified therapist, Olivia will be happy to offer you a tailor made-treatment adapted to your very own needs.

Through her background and studies Olivia  has gained experience of  pre and post natal treatments, dance and sporting accidents or injuries as well as the less chronic but equally debilitating pain associated with sedentary occupations or lifestyles.

Olivia uses an extensive range of techniques:

  • Gentle mobilisation, adjustments
  • Soft tissue techniques
  • Visceral
  • Craniosacral
  • Acupuncture

Olivia is also available for home visits within Central London or emergency appointments on weekdays as well as weekends. Her patients are of all ages starting with newborns.
