Mary has been an osteopath since 1999, when she qualified from the University College of Osteopathy as top of her class. She recently moved to Edinburgh from Wiltshire and is loving the change of scene. She uses the very gentle, so called ‘cranial’ osteopathic approach.
Much of her post-graduate study has been devoted to honing these skills, including completing the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy’s 250 hr Pathway, studies in Biodynamic Osteopathy and gaining a Masters degree in Paediatric Osteopathy. This type of care is well suited to babies, children, older patients, complex or long-standing problems, coping with stress and emotional issues and health maintenance.
Mary is interested in your life history, lifestyle, current stresses and how things came to be troublesome today. She especially enjoys meeting whole families – caring for grandparents, parents, children, newborns and sometimes the family pets too (she treats horses and dogs as well as people). Some of her patients have been with her since the very start of her practice in Wiltshire, 20 years ago, and she loves the depth of relationship that that long connection brings.
Outside work she has had a lifelong love of horses and dogs, enjoys cinema, theatre, learning languages and hiking in the hills with her husband. She is looking forward to exploring Scotland’s natural beauty and rich culture.
