Kirstie Cousins, registered osteopath

About

Kirstie Cousins BOst LSSM(Dip)

I qualified at the British School of Osteopathy, following a long career in Sport and Remedial Massage.  I work with a combination of structural, visceral, functional and cranial osteopathic techniques as well as dry needling and specialised soft tissue techniques and enjoy working with adults and children of all ages to improve their health and day-to-day function and comfort.    Home care exercises and stretches play an important part of recovery, from both acute and chronic conditions and I work with clients to develop simple and achievable maintenance and rehabilitation programmes.

I have extensive experience of supporting both professional and amateur athletes through their training and competitions, and during recovery from injury.   I have worked with many triathletes, cyclists and runners as well as dancers, power lifters, strongman competitors, golfers and martial arts enthusiasts.  I am a senior lecturer and tutor at NLSSM The School of Sports Massage.

I regularly undertake continuing professional development courses within orthopaedics, paediatrics and neurology, soft tissue therapy and osteopathy to stay up to date with current clinical practice and improve care to our clients. I enjoy cycling, swimming and running to stay fit, as well as diving, trekking and travel and photography.
