My name is Louise Chatland, and I am currently practising as a Massage Therapist offering both soft and deep tissue massage sessions.

I have been passionate about pursuing a career in osteopathy since attending work experience at Amber Health in 2012.  I am currently in my fourth year studying Osteopathy at The British College of Osteopathic Medicine, and will graduate in July 2018 with a masters in Osteopathic Medicine and diplomas in both Naturopathy and Osteopathy.

My Osteopathic and Naturopathic background enables me to take a holistic approach to treatment, treating the body as whole, assisting the body to heal itself.
