ABOUT BRYONY

About Me

I am an Equine Osteopath, both a practitioner and a lecturer in the subject. My work was borne from personal experience with the power of osteopathic philosophy and healing, as well as a inherent passion for horses. I am very fortunate to have a job where I am genuinely excited and inspired to go to work each and every day, I love my job.
.
I aim to provide an expert solution for owners to help resolve back pain, improve & maintain performance and support injury recovery for their horses. Alongside this I offer informative talks to groups and clubs on related topics such as exercises, back care basics and anatomy. I am passionate about the education aspect for clients, hence my informative posts on my Facebook page.
Working extensively across SW London, Surrey and Somerset I provide a well respected service due to my passion for thorough examinations, bespoke treatments and quick results. I also works in close partnership with vets, farriers, saddlers and other therapists to ensure a truly horse centered approach to recovery and performance.
.
The horse is always at the heart of my sessions, sessions are done at the horses pace and force is never used. Osteopathy is a gentle and effective form of manual therapy. I use specialist mobilisations and soft tissue releases alongside technical and unique (yet never forceful) joint manipulations to optimise straightness, balance and freedom.
My unique treatment style is an integration of my traditional osteopathic training adapted for horses as well as drawing on influence from other equine therapies (e.g. Masterson Method, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic).
.
Feel confident that I hold a first class BSc(hons) in Osteopathy, a Post Graduate Diploma in Animal Osteopathy and have done extensive and varied CPD courses. I am proudly RAMP registered giving you peace of mind that the highest level of professionalism, education and ongoing CPD standards are met.

My philosophies

Sport horses must be considered as one would a human athlete; understanding and management of their physical health is paramount. It is unrealistic to ask a horse to perform to a certain level without maintaining a fully functioning musculoskeletal system.

The majority of horses will become unbalanced, under strain or injured through the process of their training at some point. Most owners are very good at recognising when this has happened to their horse; I can help restore health and balance. In addition, equine osteopathic assessment and treatment can help prevent injury and maintain postural alignment. This is achieved through my sound knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics combined with extensive therapeutic osteopathic skills.

Every horse, and each situation is different. There is never a cookie-cutter answer to musculoskeletal problems with horses. I always take my time to understand the problem and treatment is always individualised to a horses specific needs and performance demands.

I strongly feel an essential part of the treatment process is to explain in completeness to the owner/ trainer about my findings. Trying to help you understand the processes which may have lead to the injury/ unbalance, and deciding together how best to resore the horse to optimal health for the long term.
