Simon Webborn D.O. Lic.Ac
As a practitioner of both Osteopathy and Acupuncture I can combine my knowledge from different philosophies to help treat patients. I use a combination of massage, manipulation, mobilisation, articulation and acupuncture. As well as the therapy I use taping, exercises, heel wedges and orthotics to help improve patients posture and balance and core strength.
I qualified from B.S.O in 1986 with a diploma in Osteopathy D.O and became a member of the registered osteopaths in 1986 which after revalidification was re-issued 2001.
