Sandra has previously completed a BSc(Hons) in Equine Science at Hartpury College during which time she developed an interest in the injury and rehabilitation of the equine athlete. On completing her degree she gained a position working within the College’s well renowned Equine Therapy Centre. It was whilst working at the centre that her interest in Osteopathy developed, initially in its use as a treatment with horses but growing into a keen interest on how it can help riders as well. Combining her knowledge of both the equine and human body Sandra offers a unique service to riders, by helping riders function better this automatically improves the horses way of going.
As well as treating athletes, in particular horse riders, Sandra also enjoys helping a wide range of patients but in particular those with long term conditions such as arthritis as well has helping women through pregnancy.
Away from osteopathy Sandra has previously ridden and competed to Elementary level dressage with her own horse. She also enjoys mountain biking and training and competing her Flatcoated Retriever Piper in the sport of dog agility.
Piper is Sandra’s Flatcoated Retriever who joined the Malvern Clinic at the tender age of just 10 weeks in January 2017. She can be found in her own little area of the Malvern clinic keeping an eye on things and offering free pats and licks to those who want them!
If you are at all unsure of dogs or allergic to them please don’t let that put you off coming, let me know in advance and I can make sure she is either not with me or is safely in her own little area.
