Verification

 

Antonia is a qualified Osteopath, Massage Therapist and Coach. She has a passion for health and wellbeing and believes that optimal health and happiness come from within.

She has experience working in private practice as well as upscale hotel spas in Iceland. Antonia qualified from The British School of Osteopathy in 2012 and prior to that she completed a 3 year program in Massage Therapy in Iceland. After graduating as an Osteopath she continued to regularly further and update her education by completing numerous short courses including a postgraduate course in Cranial Osteopathy and several courses in Positive Psychology.

Antonia places emphasis on preventive healthcare, awareness and encourages patient autonomy. She is originally from Iceland and is a great outdoor and nature enthusiast.

Antonia works with the whole person and uses a variety of techniques in her work, such as cranial, structural (e.g articulation and manipulation) but also focuses on the stresses we accumulate in our fascia and tissues in general. She automatically uses her intuition to feel for deeper restrictions/imbalances in the way of reaching optimal health. In recent years she has gained specific experience in working with the elderly and their specific needs.

Antonia is passionate about positive psychology, health and the mind-body connection. She specialises in treating stress related problems and chronic pain where she looks for the root of the problem.

This winter she will also be offering workshops in Positive Psychology (the science of wellbeing) with an emphasis on mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy as well as private coaching sessions.

Services & Treatments

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a hands on therapy with the whole person in mind. It focuses on understanding the patient, their lifestyle and environment rather than just treating symptoms. It works with the structure and function of the body and based on the concept that these components are inseparable and connected (e.g. a foot problem can compromise your gait and therefore result in Lower back pain).
A typical consultation consists of assessing, treating and preventing a broad range of health problems. The treatment aims to reduce pain and enable the body to function optimally.
Techniques used vary from stretching, movement/articulation, deep tissue massage, fascial release and manipulation of muscles and joints to improve function, alleviate pain and aid recovery. Palpation skills are paramount to reach effective results within Osteopathic Practise. Osteopaths are professionals regulated by the General Osteopathic Council and undergo an intensive 4 years long training and 1000 + clinical hours to achieve this.
Osteopathy was the first ‘Complementary’ therapy to have received statutory regulation by Parliament and has been recognised by the medical profession for a number of years. It is covered by most medical insurance schemes.

Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of strengths that allow and empower individuals and communities to thrive. It is an applied science aiming to improve quality of life bringing out the best in the person finding ways to function optimally. Positive psychology uses evidence based tools focusing on strength, resilience, flourishing, love, meaning and wellbeing. Ultimately it looks at what works and how to use strengths to build on that.

“Curing the negatives does not produce the positives.”
― Martin E.P. Seligman, Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life

“Depression is now ten times as prevalent as it was in 1960, and it strikes at a much younger age. The mean age of a person’s first episode of depression forty years ago was 29.5, while today it is 14.5 years. This is a paradox, since every objective indicator of well-being—purchasing power, amount of education, availability of music, and nutrition—has been going north, while every indicator of subjective well-being has been going south. How is this epidemic to be explained?”
― Martin E.P. Seligman, Authentic Happiness: Using the New Positive Psychology to Realize Your Potential for Lasting Fulfillment
