Osteopathy M. Ost

Niall grew up in London and moved to Leeds in 2012, graduating from Leeds Beckett University in July 2017 with a Masters degree in Osteopathy.

The Masters course Niall completed ensures he is competent in delivering a multitude of techniques, including gait analysis, High Velocity Thrust (HVT) manipulations, soft tissue work, Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Techniques (PNF) and other articulations.Niall also provides craniosacral osteopathy which he qualified in at Leeds Beckett University through the Sutherland Cranial College. Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, safe and effective approach to treatment for a wide range of problems throughout the body. It allows the practitioner to feel subtle changes within the body, including tension and tissue changes. This gentle treatment can be a useful for a variety of presenting symptoms including, past traumas both physically and emotionally, as well as digestive problems.

Niall worked at the Queens Square Wellness Centre of Osteopathy in Leeds whilst studying and this enabled him to work with patients from all walks of life. He enjoys the challenge of treating shoulder and low back pain, assessing postural dysfunctions and GAIT analysis. In 2016, Niall competed at the British under 23 weightlifting championships. This experience and the training required, allowed him to gain an in-depth knowledge of exercise prescription, rehabilitation and training for sports.  It also allowed him to work with athletes such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Lloyd Cooper. Working at the London 2012 Olympic/Paralympic Games and the Great North Run have also given him an insight into a range of conditions and allowed him to implement his knowledge of the body and develop his osteopathic techniques in a variety of settings.

Niall aspires to complete further training as well as enhancing his knowledge of clinical nutrition that he acquired through continual professional development courses. He will soon complete his Pilates instruction course.
