Cranial Osteopath, Naturopath
Rehana is a registered osteopath, with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).
Her background, as an editor in book publishing and a theatre administrator, has been translated to examining the stories or narrative ‘held’ in the human body, during over twenty years working in health and complementary medicine.
She completed her four year degree in Osteopathy from the British College of Osteopathy and Naturopathy (now BCOM) and Postgraduate two year specialism in Paediatric Osteopathy, with clinic training at the OCC (Osteopathic Centre for Children), special care baby unit at Barnet Hospital and the Sutherland Cranial College (SCC).
Osteopathy regards the body as intelligent, with the inherent capacity to self-regulate. However, we all need a helping hand at times of stress or injury to overcome strains. Rather than focus solely on symptoms, osteopaths can combine scientific anatomical knowledge with the refined art of palpation, to access the underlying health in a person. An osteopathic treatment is based on detailed clinical case history taking, structural and postural assessment and a sound, medically informed diagnosis.
With her family-centred practice, Rehana’s osteopathic approach is gentle, yet highly effective, in the treatment of any range of health issues, with the overriding aim, to encourage the potential health that we all have.
She has worked within the NHS, in private practice and also as a Clinic Tutor in the cranial approach for final year undergraduate osteopaths at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM).
Rehana is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy (iO), British Osteopathic Association (BOA) and an Alumni member of the Foundation of Paediatric Osteopathy (FPO).
