About

Jess shaw 83 (1)Jessica Shaw, BSc (Hons) Ost 

Registered Osteopath

Hello and welcome to my website.  I have been an osteopath for 13 years and use a combination of structural and cranial osteopathic techniques with a patient led approach to treatment. Techniques used may include spinal and joint mobilisation and adjustment, cranial osteopathy, deep tissue massage and myofascial release, passive and active stretching, muscle energy, postural assessment and exercise rehabilitation. Each person is different, so I use the most suitable approach for each individual depending on needs and preferences.

I graduated from the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy in London in 2000 after 4 years full-time, with first class honours.  After moving to Edinburgh in 2001, I spent 10 years establishing a multi-disciplinary practice before moving back down to my native Yorkshire with the arrival of my third child in 2011.

spirit-body-mindI love treating people of all ages, and am particularly interested in the treatment of children and expectant mothers having done post-graduate training in this field.  I enjoy working with women with pregnancy related back and pelvic pain, and love working with children.  I am also interested in posture and the effect that poor posture, especially at work, can have on our bodies.

I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council, a member of the British Osteopathic Association and the Sutherland Society and am also on the pathway with the Sutherland Cranial College.  I have also done voluntary work at the Osteopathic Centre for Children in Manchester and have training in work posture risk assessment through the HSE.

Outside of work, I have practiced Pilates for almost 20 years and have always worked closely with Pilates and Yoga teachers to help people get the most out of their sessions and continue finding their own way towards greater strength and flexibility.

Please contact me for any further information.  I look forward to hearing from you.
