The Core Clapton team is a group of highly motivated individuals who all care deeply about improving the health and wellbeing of the local community, regardless of anyone’s financial situation.
Susanne’s deep interest in health and wellbeing, together with a desire to work with people in a more meaningful way, led her to osteopathy as a second career.
With a genuine interest in people, Susanne takes time to understand you, your unique history, as well as your presenting symptoms. This helps her to provide tailored treatment and advice, according to your personal goals and needs.
She uses a variety of techniques, including joint articulation and mobilisation, soft-tissue work, lifestyle and rehabilitation advice. With expert care and an understanding of the underlying causes of tension within the body, she aims to provide a treatment to unwind tension, reduce pain and promote a positive change towards health.
She graduated from the University of Osteopathy with Distinction and is currently studying for a post-graduate diploma in Classical Osteopathy. Classical Osteopathy is a principles-based approach to health, looking at the body as a whole and utilising the self-healing nature of the body. Susanne is gaining a deeper understanding of the interrelation between all body systems and how osteopathy can promote long-term health.
She is a passionate skier, enjoys yoga and keeps fit by running, swimming and cycling.
