In a nutshell...
A French national, fully bilingual, has lived a total of 15 years in London.
A graduate from the British School of Osteopathy.
After a foray into the corporate world of advertising in Paris, Claire moved to London to embark on a fulfilling career of accompanying people's journey to improved health and movement. She first completed the Pilates Polestar course at Moss Pilates, and has been teaching Pilates there for eight years, both group and private classes.
In parallel, Claire completed a five-year Master's degree at the British School of Osteopathy, and graduated with awards:
Valedectorian Medal (best overall performance)
Principal’s Prize for Clinical Excellence (best overall performance in the final clinical exams).
Rising Star Award from the Institute of Osteopathy
Claire's nine-year experience as a Polestar Pilates instructor strongly influences her practice of osteopathy. She believes that movement is at the core of health and happiness. Her enthusiastic eye for movement and postural alignment has also been fuelled by many years of classical ballet, ice-skating, and aerial circus. She is currently a very keen rock climber and golfer in her spare time.
Claire is also a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Expert, specialising in the treatment, rehabilitation and performance enhancement of golfers.
Claire is dedicated to offering a global approach in preventing and managing pain. She has treated patients aged from 16 to 94 years old, presenting with a wide range of musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and systemic issues. She has developed a structural approach to osteopathy, with a preference towards Sports Injuries and Rehabilitation, Golfers' Injuries and Performance, Elderly Care, Sciatica and Back Pain Relief, and Chronic Pain.
Claire employs a broad range of gentle yet effective techniques including soft tissue massage, articulation, advanced spinal manipulation, and mindfulness to ensure her patients achieve the best possible outcome from her treatments. Helping people live healthier lives, through a deep curiosity and understanding of their own individual biomechanical and psychological influences, is what she strives to achieve every day.
Claire is fully insured, a member of the Institute of Osteopathy, and registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
