EXCITING LONDON WORKSHOP NEWS!

It’s FINALLY happening! I’m so excited to share with you my upcoming Hypermobility 101 Workshop that’s taking place in London next month on Saturday July 27th 🙂

HYPERMOBILITY 101 WORKSHOP

I was going to call this workshop “Everything I Wish People Knew About Hypermobility, hEDS, and HSD” but that seemed like a mouthful. So instead I went with Hypermobility 101: Your Essential Guide for Hypermobility, hEDS, and HSD.
Here’s what you need to know:
  • the workshop is at The Light Centre Monument 36 Saint Mary at Hill, London EC3R 8DU from 12:30-4:45pm
  • tickets are super limited. We’re talking 15 tickets total as the workshop is being hosted in a cozy venue with heaps of character in the heart of central London
  • the Hypermobility 101 workshop will cover everything I wish people knew about hypermobility, hEDS, and HSD in the time that I’ll have with you. You can see the itinerary for the day below.
  • your ticket includes coffee/tea/cake from the most gorgeous little cafe at the venue. Most dietary requirements can be accommodated for as long as I know in advance, so please reach out ASAP if you get a ticket and have a specific dietary requirement!
  • there will be goody bags featuring products from some of my favourite brands
  • there is AIR CONDITIONING!
  • the venue is on the ground floor, there are no stairs, and there is a single-stall accessible bathroom

cks OR to have a chair (of course participants seated in chairs will be asked to sit toward the back of the room so as not to obstruct the view of participants seated on mats). Fidgeting/regularly changing position is encouraged, as is staying hydrated.

more about me

hey there!

I’m a UK registered osteopath who specialises in working with hypermobile patients who have complex, chronic, and seemingly ‘treatment-resistant’ injuries. My years of professional experience (as well as my lifetime of personal experience of being hypermobile!) have given me a wealth of knowledge that I use to craft bespoke, scientifically-informed, truly patient-centred treatment plans for hypermobile patients whether they’re dealing with 1 injury or 10! I take pride in offering hypermobile patients healthcare support that addresses and works with their uniquely hypermobile bodies.
