David Heath has been in osteopathic practice in Stoke-on-Trent and Congleton for over 30 years, having graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1983. He also studied Transactional Analysis psychotherapy to further his understanding of mind-body interactions. Additionally he has remained an active sportsman all of his life and works with personal trainers and yoga teachers to assist people in safe return to activity and in rehabilitation from injury.
His academic interests are in exploring how the research in the areas of neuroscience, trauma and pain management can inform his practise along with studying nutrition and exercise and their influence on our well-being. He has found integrating this information to be particularly useful in working with people with chronic problems and, what are often termed, medically unexplained symptoms.
