About

About Zen Osteopathy

Zen and the Art of Osteopathy is the fusion of western manual therapy treatment and eastern restorative mindful body work, where the hands are used for diagnosing and treating imbalances related to the whole body and mind.

As an Osteopath candidate at the Scandinavian Osteopathic Society, Meditation, Breathwork, Shiatsu and Tai Chi practitioner with several years of experience in different monasteries around the world, I have specialized in listening to, seeing and treating the human being as a whole where biological, social and psychological factors connect and affect each other.

In addition I am a EDS ECHO Allied Health Professional UK/Europe and EDS ECHO Nutrition trained in hEDS/HSD Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobile Spectrum Disorder within the EDS ECHO program (read more).

Zen Osteopathy is a patient-centered way of assessing, treating and preventing health problems in the whole body.

The latest methods from research fields such as musculoskeletal pain, interoception and neuropsychology are applied in a patient tailored treatment. No patient is the same, Zen Osteopathy helps you to better understand your body, why it is not in harmony and helps your body and mind to create a path to get back into balance.
