DR EMMA JORDAN (Osteopath)

After 10 years in France and a year traveling she returned to the UK to study at the European School of Osteopathy in Maidstone, Kent where she completed her Integrated Masters Degree. Emma continued education in France where she developed palpation skills further and learnt a new approach to treatment.

Every one of us is unique so Emma is committed to giving her patient’s individualized care to get them the best results possible. Emma uses gentle treatment techniques, commonly known as cranial Osteopathy (although not restricted to the head), which she enjoys practicing and wishes to develop further.

Emma has a particular interest in the treatment of mothers and children and feels passionate about assisting babies in their development by relieving them from strains acquired from pregnancy and birth.



Matt grew up in the rural SW of Cornwall. He studied in the UK at Swansea University, where he completed his Integrated Masters Degree in Osteopathy (M.Ost). Matt worked in the UK before making the decision to immigrate to warmer shores – to pursue both Osteopathy and Lifeguarding.

Matt is committed to giving his patient’s what they need to get them back to what they love in life, whether that’s sports, work or just waking up pain free. Matt prides himself on his gentle but effective therapy and has a real passion for exercise and rehabilitation- which he will often incorporate into his management of your symptoms.
