I developed an interest in the human body when I started working in the fitness and wellness industry. Since 2006 I have worked as a personal trainer, class instructor teaching a variety of classes such as spinning, boot camp, yoga and pilates and sports massage therapist. I became fascinated with how osteopaths used a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions, after being treated for an injury. They work with the structure and function of the body using the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues all functioning smoothly together. I completed five years part-time, Bachelors of Osteopathy, at the British School of Osteopathy (now University College of Osteopaths). All osteopaths will have done a minimum of 1000 clinic hours, as part of their training and are required by law to register with the General Osteopathic Council. I use my experience and training in sports massage, personal training, and pilates/yoga, to tailor treatments specifically to the patient, which will compliment osteopathy to aid the recovery process further.
KJ Therapies are based in The Circle Spa and gym which is close to London Bridge and Tower Bridge and offers osteopathic treatment and sports massage, treating all ages.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.

To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, without the use of drugs or surgery.
Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
