Nick O'Connor - Principal Osteopath

Nick graduated from the British School of Osteopathy. He has worked as an osteopath in various clinics around South East Essex before opening his own clinic in 2006. Nick grew up in Ilford where he took up karate, competing at a national level into his twenties.Following a serious knee injury he was referred to an osteopath for treatment and rehabilitation. His exposure to osteopathy was life changing, he was so impressed by the holistic approach that he made the decision to step away from a successful career in Reinsurance Management and return to education to become an Osteopath. In the last few years Nick has become increasingly interested in the combination of acupuncture with osteopathy and has undertaken a significant amount of post-graduate training in medical acupuncture. He also developed a keen interest in pilates-based exercise for rehabilitation and has qualified as a pilates instructor with the Australian Pilates.
