James-profile

James Miles-Christansen

Osteopath

Ouch! Rupturing 2 discs playing university rugby 30 years ago was hectic and probably instrumental in guiding James into becoming the osteopath he is today. Trading therapies to treat his back the world-over nurtured his knowledge too; from Chinese acupuncture, to German Orthopaedics and Swiss rehabilitation centres. He’s had it all. And this has made him pretty driven to help people. He knows it; he’s been there.

Drive and dedication is definitely central to his work, with a Masters (M.Ost) in osteopathy, and post-grad studies in Sports and Rehabilitation (Cardiff Met. PGCert), James’s skill set has enabled him to work extensively in elite sports including osteopath for TeamBath Performance Athletics, Bath Rugby, medic for England and GB Karate, and pro-squash.

Sian-profile

Sian Trayling

Osteopath

Sian qualified as an osteopath from the University College of Osteopathy in 2012 and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Sian has over 10 years’ experience and set up her own practice in Twickenham, London, but she has more recently returned to her roots in the West Country.

She uses a wide range of the most effective treatment techniques including cranial osteopathy and acupuncture and enjoys being able to make a difference to people’s daily lives, no matter what their age or ability. Sian has specialised in working with children and has a keen interest in sports and has worked with professional athletes from all backgrounds, ranging from rugby and polo players to rowers and cricketers.

Taryn-profile

Taryn Stevenson

Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist

Although Taryn loved her job as an Account Director selling Materials handling equipment, the 1000 miles per week started taking a toll on her body. So, with a sore back and tight shoulders and frustrations of having ear infections due to so much swimming, she finally discovered the benefit of alternative therapies and has not looked back since.

Her love of the alternative therapies, and the benefits of them, prompted a career change to a sports massage therapist. Being able to help and support clients with body health and well-being through sports massage is what Taryn is about. Taryn has enjoyed working with Bath Rugby Team and qualified at Bath University. She is thrilled to be working with the team at Oldfield Osteopathic Clinic.

Andrew-profile

Andrew Kingsley

Acupuncture

Andrew treats a broad range of conditions introducing other therapies to help with specific conditions, including Tui Na acupressure for pain and discomfort, hypnotherapy for sleep and anxiety and EFT (Emotional Freedom technique) for trauma and negative patterns. He is keen to empower patients within the treatment process and to be aware of the choices they can make for themselves in terms of good health and well-being.

As well as his acupuncture practice Andrew also runs workshops, meditation classes and sound baths at The Soul Spa in the centre of Bath. He also has a private practice on Bloomfield Road, Bath.
