ABOUT OSTEOPATHY IN DULWICH


SANDIE ENNIS BA (hons) B.Ost (Ost) PgCert (Clin Ed)

“Sandie is a creative, resourceful, person-centred practitioner, with a proven track record of providing excellent levels of care to a diverse group of people. Equally adept as an educator with experience of creating and delivering a broad range of clinical teaching, health education, and rehabilitation. Committed to personal development, she has a particular interest in movement rehabilitation and complex multifactorial health issues”

I qualified as an osteopath in 2009, followed by extensive postgraduate studies including cranial and classical osteopathy, women’s health and training in paediatrics at the world famous foundation for paediatric osteopathy in London (aka osteopathic centre for children – OCC).  Previously, I completed my UK training and certification with Body Control Pilates (BCP) in 2000, BCP is one of the leading education providers for Pilates teacher training and the most significant professional Pilates organisation outside the USA.   I established Pilates in Dulwich in the same year. Committed to my ongoing development, I also undertook advanced studies at Kane School of Core Integration in New York under the tutelage and mentorship of Kelly Kane, one of the most highly regarded and experienced pilates educators and therapists in the USA.

My extended clinical work is influenced by all of these factors some of which have organically integrated into my current evolving non-purist practice, which is underpinned by comprehensive training and certification, and lifelong professional development.I have worked in several highly regarded London clinics, including volunteering at the OCC (2011 – 2013) to enhance my treatment of babies and children. During this time I established my own osteopathic practice to compliment my existing pilates work.   My extended clinical work is influenced by all of these factors some of which have organically integrated into my current evolving non-purist practice, which is underpinned by comprehensive training and certification, and lifelong professional development. 

I currently divide my time between private osteopathic practice, teaching Pilates, running community-based first aid training, clinical tutoring, developing, writing and delivering specialist lectures/workshops/courses and completing heaps of continual professional development (CPD) each year.


SPECIALITIES & AREAS OF INTEREST

Osteopathy

Sandie has a particular interest in osteopathy in the cranial field aka “cranial.” She has a personal interest in the treatment and management of complex multifactorial musculoskeletal problems arising from the spinal or joint problems or following surgery. Her approach to treatment is sensitive and gentle, believing that allowing the body to unwind and relax is essential to releasing stress and strain patterns, she will also utilise more direct osteopathic techniques as appropriate. She has extensive experience in movement rehabilitation.

Her other area of experience is in treating infants, babies, children and teens, alongside women who experience musculoskeletal pain or movement issues related to pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.


Pilates

I have extensive experience in movement rehabilitation, offering both individual tuition or specialised small group classes.
