James Gillard


James is an experienced osteopath who is inquisitive and a problem solver by nature. He uses a ‘Brain and Nervous system based” approach to help identify areas where a breakdown in communication between the brain, nervous system and body tissues exist. Using a combination of manual therapy and brain based movements

James helps to facilitate the system to recalibrate and return to balance. As a result, patients tend to see very quick changes to their symptoms and function.

He provides extensive nutritional and lifestyle recommendations as an adjunct to osteopathic treatment.
