Ellie King

Ellie graduated with a Masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy. After receiving osteopathic treatment at a young age, it was this introduction that inspired her to study osteopathy herself. Since starting the profession, Ellie has only become more enthusiastic about osteopathy & the different methods available to improving health. With a firm belief in guiding the body to restore its own vitality & health, she enjoys creating tailored treatment plans to make sure each patient is addressed as an individual.
Ellie has a special interest helping patients with systemic/widespread issues requiring a holistic approach. Her post-graduate training in Classical Osteopathy has further assisted & enhanced her knowledge in this area. She has recently completed further training in Cranial Osteopathy, and has experience treating children and babies. 
Ellie lives in Braunton, being in Devon means she can enjoy all the county has to offer, an active lifestyle, including surfing and hiking. She has attended courses on sport biomechanics and has experience treating a number of sporting injuries. She enjoys working with athletes to resolve any problems with fitness or health.

“Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel the Involuntary Mechanism, a very subtle, rhythmical change that is present in all body tissues. The movement is of very small amplitude, therefore it takes practitioners with a very finely developed sense of touch to feel it. This rhythm was first described by Dr. William G. Sutherland and its existence was confirmed in a series of laboratory tests in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Tension in the body disrupts the rhythmical motion expressed in the body tissues. Practitioners compare what your rhythm is doing to what they consider ideal. This shows them what stresses and strains your body is under at present, and what tensions it may be carrying as a result of its past history. It also gives them an insight into the overall condition of your body, for example if it is healthy, or stressed and tired.”
