I trained as an Osteopath through a desire to combine theoretical and practical knowledge in a direct way that could make a difference to people’s lives. Seldom do we see the same practitioner or have access to someone that understands us, hopefully osteopathy can remedy this situation.
Having recently hit the half-century mark, Stuart is very interested in how we age well, how our awareness can impact on the health sustaining behaviors and beliefs that allow us to thrive. If we have a good understanding of why we are getting into situations then we can work out how to get out of them. For all of us establishing and sustaining good practices or healthy habits can make a huge difference.
Stuart is a keen walker and cyclist, he is happiest in the hills. His latest interest is BJJ.
