Hands on principles and techniques start on one`s first day of attending an Osteopathic College and the use of palpation and feeling different tones in the Muscular Skeletal System is only one part of the training to become a fully qualified Osteopath.

An early adopter of Electrotherapy and Vibrotherapy, seven years ago Helen was introduced and trained in the use of Shockwave Therapy and evidence based quality rehabilitation techniques and exercises by the Physiotherapist Cliff Eaton.
As a result of her interest and continued training in Focused Shockwaves and Electromagnetic Therapy, Helen was invited to join a team of specialist Shockwave Tutors who were trained by Storz Medical Expert Tutors in Switzerland.
