Our Team - Physiotherapists
Diploma of Physiotherapy (Vienna), MSc Osteopathy
Member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists
Fran originally graduated as a physiotherapist in 2004 in Vienna, Austria. She has since worked in various settings, public hospitals and private clinics in Vienna, Paris and now London.
She went on to study osteopathy and graduated in 2014 from the BSO (British School of Osteopathy) with a Masters Degree in Osteopathy.
Studying osteopathy enabled her to further advance her diagnostic skills and gave her additional tools to develop more effective treatments, including manipulations, visceral and cranial techniques.
Her extensive experience includes working with acute trauma injuries, sport injuries (in and out-patients), oncology, gynaecology, orthopaedics (specialising in scoliosis), paediatrics and chronic pain.
Her special interest lies in movement facilitation to allow a successful and fulfilling life.
Fran is also an IAIM infant massage instructor and member of Manual Lymphatic Drainage UK.
Fran speaks fluent English, French and German and is recognised by most private health insurance companies including BUPA , AXA*, Cigna, Aviva, WPA, and Vitality Health (Pru).
