Formerly an Astrophysicist and actor/dancer, Julieann developed an interest in physical therapies after the birth of her first nephew who suffered ear-piercing colic. She wanted to understand the mechanics of what was going on and so be able to help.
A Masters in Osteopathy ensued, attained at the British School of Osteopathy, followed by postgraduate in paediatrics at the Osteopathic Centre for Children, where Julieann is now a tutor and lecturer.
Julieann has also explored cranial osteopathy via the Sutherland Cranial College, visceral osteopathy with the Barral Institute, biodynamic osteopathy through the association of Traditional Osteopathic Studies and women’s peri- and post-partum health via the Mummy MOT.
Julieann has a passion for biomechanics, the way the body works, and likes to get to the root cause of any presenting condition. Although she treats patients of any age, her current focus is babies, children and women’s health.
She is particularly interested in the phenomenon of tongue tie, having worked closely with midwives and lactation consultants, and, in conjunction with the Key Clinic and Rhythmic Movement Training International, is currently studying the role of movement in the re-integration of primitive reflexes for children with learning and behavioural difficulties.
