Graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a distinction grade Masters Degree in Osteopathy and Diploma in Naturopathy.
Upon completion of her course, Christie was the recipient of the Institute of Osteopathy’s Rising Star Award, a prestigious award for those that have shown commitment to their study of osteopathy and aspiring commitment to continue the development of the profession.
Christie gained vast clinical experience at an osteopathic clinic in Hampstead, North London, treating both private and NHS referral patients with a huge variety of conditions. Here Christie gained interest in widespread pain, chronic conditions and understanding the complex relationship between the body, stress and anxiety. During this time Christie gained great insight into how these conditions often require an alternative approach and saw how osteopathy can help, even for those whose symptoms were so persistent they had little hope of relief.
Christie firmly believes that by considering all aspects of a person as opposed to treating
individual body parts that have become diseased or injured, means that treatment is specifically tailored to each individual, ensuring high quality care personalised to specific needs. Using a combination of manualtherapy, movement education and nutritional advice, Christie endeavours to empower individuals to take control of their own health so that pain can no longer govern their daily activities.
Prior to her degree, Christie trained in performing arts alongside working in the health and fitness sector as a fitness instructor and nutritional advisor. Outside of her osteopathic practice Christie is a passionate mother to her daughter and enjoys crafts, woodland walks and caring for her pets.
