I’m passionate about using the pilates method with my patients as its what worked for me. Before becoming an osteopath I was an engineer, working at a desk all day. I had persistent back pain after I decided to try to get fit and started cycling 20k to work every day!
The back pain told me that my body was not happy with how fast I’d made this change in my lifestyle. I saw a physio who started rehabilitating me with clinical pilates. It took some dedication, getting up 15 mins earlier every morning to do the exercises but after 8 weeks I could really feel a difference. I knew how to sit better at work, I felt great when I cycled and the persistent back ache had receded.
After I qualified as an Osteopath, I undertook further training in mat-based Pilates. Now I am delighted to be able to teach my patients the exercises that really helped me.Click here and watch Sheena’s video to find out more about her

My fascination with the skeletal system and human body started at a young age as I watched my Grandmother suffer with a scoliosis. I was amazed the improvement in her condition after seeing an osteopath. I knew then that manual therapy was where my passion lay and was the way I could make the best impact on people’s lives and reduce their pain.
After graduating with a Master of Osteopathy from Oxford Brookes University, I moved to Scotland and I love it here. I’ve worked in clinics in Edinburgh and Oxford, and have treated a wide variety of patients with various complaints including those with lower back pain, arthritis associated pain, pain due to pregnancy, sports injuries and pain linked to chronic regional pain syndrome. I have an adaptable holistic patient-centred approach to treatment in order to aid each patient’s self-healing process and use techniques from different branches within Osteopathy. I also have experience of neuro-muscular and motor rehabilitation with the use of cognitive-behavioural methods, and exercise plan, predominantly for the rehabilitation of sports injuries. I love what I do as an Osteopath and find little more rewarding than one of my patients leaving feeling amazing.
I enjoy exploring the Scottish scenery with family and little Labradoodle and take solace in the fact that the poor weather makes for the most beautiful landscapes, I also quite enjoy the unpredictability of having all four seasons in a day.
I am a certified massage therapist specialising in Sports and Remedial Massage and a member of Scottish Massage Therapist Organisation(SMTO).
I customise my treatments to meet the specific requirements of my clients and always approach them as individuals. My treatments involve use of such techniques as: deep tissue/soft tissue, myofascial release, muscle energy, trigger points, joint mobilisation, PNF stretching.
We are all different, we have different physiques, lead different lifestyles that require different levels of physical and psychological effort, therefore we all have different requirements. I always strive to tailor the session so that my clients gain optimum benefits.

Exercise Therapy: If you are looking to learn how to improve your core strength, get some feedback on your exercise technique or workshop your stretching routines to improve your range of motion, 1:1 exercise session is what you probably need. Piotr often mixes those sessions with sports massage treatments or medical acupuncture if that is required for optimum benefit. No need for gym membership – we teach at our Glasgow clinic, you practice at home (minimal equipment required).

We will carefully undertake a full medical assessment, listening to you and ask questions to make sure that we understand your medical history and day-to-day routine. We will ask you about things like diet, exercise and what is happening in your life, as your responses may give clues to help our diagnosis. We may also perform a range of clinical tests such as taking your blood pressure, feeling your pulse or checking your reflexes to help us reach a clear understanding of your case. If necessary, and with your consent, you may also be referred for clinical tests such as x-rays if we think you need them. If we perceive such a need we will discuss things with you, so that you can make a fully informed decision about how we best care for you.
We usually look at your posture and how you move your body. We also assess what happens when we move your body for you and see what hurts and when. The Osteopath will use their highly developed sense of touch to find the areas that are sensitive or tight; this will help us identify what is going on and formulate an accurate diagnosis. We may sometimes feel that osteopathy is not appropriate and may refer you back to your GP or another specialist, with your consent.
Osteopathy is all about finding the right solutions for the individual. Therefore all decisions relating to your health will be made in discussion with you as the patient, so that the most appropriate care can be given to best meet your needs.
Treatment lasts between 30 to 45 minutes,the number of appointments required to influence your symptoms depends on the condition and the person we are treating. We will give you a clear indication of how many appointments may be necessary at your first session and we will regularly review your progress with you whenever necessary.
You do not need to see your doctor first if you are paying for your own treatment. However some insurance companies require you to see your doctor before embarking on a course of treatment.Book A Consultation
