Clare Shaw – Registered Osteopath
Clare Shaw BSc (Hons) Ost Med
lare became interested in Osteopathy early on, a keen athlete and national level Judo player she developed a fascination for Anatomy and Biomechanics after receiving treatment for a back injury.
She completed a 4 year degree at the John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy in Ewell, Epsom and qualified with a BSc(Hons) in Osteopathic Medicine in 2003.
She then went on to complete post graduate courses in Cranial Osteopathy and spent several years working in private practice using both structural and Cranial osteopathy, treating a variety ofpatients from pregnant women, babies and children, to athletes and the elderly.
Clare took a break from Osteopathic practice to have children in 2008 and during this time she took the opportunity to complete training in Lomi Lomi massage, a unique healing massage originating from the master healers in Hawaii. This massage complements the Osteopathic principles as it’s focus is to release tensions caused by physical or emotional strain and create balance within the body. The whole body is treated with a combination of releasing, mobilising and lymphatic drainage techniques.
Over the years Clare has created a very unique treatment incorporating some of the Lomi Lomi massage techniques to address soft tissue tensions and holding patterns, with a focus to align and balance the body through osteopathic techniques and principles specific to the individual’s condition and need.
A postural assessment looks for structural imbalance and immobility. Any problems areas will be addressed specifically and holistically within the treatment with an aim of finding structural balance and alignment, reduced tension and free mobility within the joints. This encourages the circulatory and nervous systems to function freely giving vitality and energetic balance within the body.
Clare also practices from Forest row at the Anderida Practice and the Acorn children’s clinic which specialises in paediatric Osteopathy.
Clare attends regular post graduate courses to enhance, deepen and broaden her knowledge and skills.
