Meet Anthony Skinner
Anthony has a Master’s Degree in Osteopathy from the European School of Osteopathy in Maidstone. He uses a variety of gentle and safe approaches to osteopathic treatment, including structural, cranial and visceral. He also possesses a Foundation Qualification in Western Acupuncture.
Anthony is a keen sportsman and loves climbing and swimming. He understands how important it is for you to get back to function, following an injury, having suffered similar experiences in his teenage years.
When he was a teenager, his osteopath helped him to regain function in his back and achieve relief from debilitating back pain using her hands and reassurance. He was able to return to sport such as rugby, cricket, swimming and also running. This inspired him to learn more about this incredible form of physical medicine.
He will take the time to get an understanding of what you and your body have been through. He listens to you and feels how the body tissues have adapted using his hands – a skill known as palpation, which is continuously developing with each day.
Anthony lives by the quote ‘do as you would be done by’ because, as an Allied Healthcare Practitioner, it is extremely relevant. He always expects the highest quality of care when he sees a health professional, so he ensures he provides his patients with the same.
