David Turner B.Ost
David started life as a mechanical engineer and ended up living and working abroad for several years. Having been successfully treated for various aches and pains over the preceding years by a local osteopath and becoming disillusioned with the “short term-ism” in the engineering world, he decided to retrain and graduated from the British School of Osteopathy with a Bachelor of Osteopathy in 2006. The internationally renowned BSO was founded in 1917 and is the oldest and largest school in the UK, it has now become the University College of Osteopathy.
He has previously worked as a part of an Osteopathic team within the NHS and currently combines his work at Reading Osteopaths with running his own practice at his local GP medical centre. He enjoys using a wide range of techniques to work with patients of all ages according to need and preference and is particularly interested in gentle visceral and functional approaches to treatment aimed at speeding up our innate healing mechanisms, and has completed postgraduate training in working with the involuntary mechanism – ‘cranial’ osteopathy – amongst other regular CPD activities.
David is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
