Karolina Todirjana

Registered Osteopath

I have a good knowledge base of yoga, Pilates and postural correction exercises, which I like to share and incorporate into the take-home exercise plan for my patients. I have a particular interest in detecting the malfunctioning or suboptimal patterns in people’s daily life activities – how are you using your body while sitting on a sofa, walking your dog, gardening, and even looking at your sleeping position. I like helping my patients to become aware of those patterns and re-educate them how use their body in the most sufficient way. I like to incorporate breathing techniques into my treatment and exercise plans as I believe they can be effective in aiding good posture, stress-management, digestion and strengthening the core muscles.

I enjoy working with a range of patients, including children and elderly patients and my treatments are varied and tailored to suit with an individual approach. I have a long-standing and continuous interest in management of structural scoliosis, especially in children, and can help with sharing my knowledge in brace assessment and specialised exercise plans and techniques.

She promotes osteopathy as an efficient way of treating musculoskeletal and visceral symptoms as well as a method of preventing symptoms from reoccurring.

Ginelle’s passion for osteopathy began at the age of 13 when she herself experienced the tremendous benefits that osteopathic treatment can have on all areas of the body. Having graduated with a masters in Osteopathic Medicine in 2014 from Leeds University, she now wants to show others how osteopathy can improve their quality of life and wellbeing.

Ginelle has a keen interest in ante/post-natal treatment, sporting injuries and in helping patients cope with the natural processes of degeneration.

Massage Therapists

Sharon Bassingthwaite

Sharon originally trained as a dancer, working professionally as a performer before joining the BBC, where she worked in film and television production for over 15 years. 

Whilst performing, she frequently had massage and osteopathy for injuries, and became an advocate for complementary therapies not just as treatment for specific injuries, but also for general well-being. This led her eventually to re-train as a massage therapist.

After completing her ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Holistic Massage, Anatomy & Physiology at Barnet College in 2006, she gained her Advanced Massage Diploma from Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine. Qualified in in deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, soft tissue release, lymphatic drainage massage, myofascial release, massage in pregnancy, seated acupressure massage and kinesiology taping, she has a particular interest in sports and fitness-related injuries. She is a qualified dance teacher and exercise instructor, and can advise on stretches and exercises to undertake to aid recovery.

Sharon is CNHC registered (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council), has an Enhanced DBS Certificate, is a member of the Complementary Therapists Association (CThA) and is fully insured via the Complementary Therapists Association (CThA).
