Caroline Vass BOst
Welcome to my website. I'm Caroline Vass, a registered Osteopath graduating from the British School of Osteopathy (University College of Osteopathy) in 2005.
Following a successful career in television, my interest in rugby led to me retraining in Sports Massage, Osteopathy. and Medical Acupuncture.
I treat pain in people of all ages, including expectant mothers and their babies, athletes wanting to be fit to compete and individuals who want to continue with their hobbies and activities.
My approach to treatment is through hands on treatment such as massage, joint manipulation and acupuncture, but I also strongly believe in postural education and the prescription of exercises, which allows the individual to better understand and manage their own health and wellbeing.
I am particularly interested in working with people who are living with degenerative hips, whether they are awaiting surgery or have recently undergone the operation. My interest comes from personal experience of the procedure and my journey back to full fitness.
Outside of clinic hours I'm a keen skier, an avid follower of Saracens and England Rugby and I enjoy worldwide travel. I have been fortunate enough to explore Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council, the Institute of Osteopathy and the British Medical Acupuncture Society.
Structural and Cranial
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of conditions including back pain, neck pain, and headaches referred from the neck. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles and ligaments functioning smoothly together.
Baby massage is a longstanding parenting tradition in many cultures, including Indian and African, and was introduced to the western world during the last 30 years, gaining in popularity in the UK since the late 1990's.
In Association with Osteopathic Treatment for Mechanical Pain
Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.
