Carla-Maria Hole M.Ost
Carla trained to become an Osteopath by completing a 4 year Masters degree at the British School of Osteopathy (BSO).
The BSO is the largest and oldest osteopathic school in the United Kingdom. Since qualifying Carla became especially interested in treating sports related injuries and completed a taping and strapping course. This is extremely useful in the managing of all injuries not just those related to sporting activities.
During her spare time she is a keen fitness enthusiast and has recently completed a “tough mudder” event and exercises on hove lawns with a local club.
Carla is trained in Western Acupuncture (Dry Needling). Western acupuncture is a modern adaptation of the traditional Chinese acupuncture approach. This form of acupuncture is not a complete system of medicine, but is a therapeutic tool which is mainly involved in treating musculo-skeletal conditions making it of great relevance in osteopathic treatment. Carla finds that having this as an extra tool is very helpful in practice.
Since finishing her undergraduate studies, Carla has completed a foundation course at the Institute of Classical Osteopathy and is now an associate member of the institute.
Carla has also undertaken post graduate training in Cranial osteopathy and other courses based around treating expectant mothers and paediatrics. There are many changes that occur during pregnancy and osteopathy will be able to assist with some of these, if you’re considering some treatment during your pregnancy then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Expectant mothers often find this gentle approach extremely useful during this time of change.
