Member of the British Osteopathic Association
Registered with the General Osteopathic Council
Daniel Thomas trained at the British School of Osteopathy. He spent three years working in a busy practice in Lancashire treating everyone from tough dairy farmers to newborn babies before finally coming home to Jersey. He also worked for a rugby team (Wharfedale RUFC) and trained in the Osteopathic Centre for Children in Manchester to gain an MSc in Paediatric Osteopathy.
Daniel uses a variety of techniques in his work (including spinal manipulation and cranial osteopathy) and chooses his techniques according to the nature of the problem and whether the patient prefers strong or gentle treatments. All of this comes with a good friendly chat and some advice on which exercises are best to help the problem.
Daniel enjoys a variety of sports including running, swimming and mountaineering, but hasn’t devoted as much time as he would like to sport since the arrival of his baby daughter. This has, however, provided an opportunity to develop a new interest in the importance of sleep in the maintenance of health and recovery from injury and chronic pain!
Daniel also enjoys dance and teaches Lindy Hop and Charleston. This provides a great chance to observe how people move and acquire new movement patterns, which feeds into his work as an osteopath. For Daniel an osteopathic treatment is more than just “fixing” a system of muscles and joints- it’s an opportunity to discuss your body’s strengths and weaknesses, and then explore ways to move better and “dance” through daily work and play.
