Dr Cindy McIntyre DProf Ost, BSc Hons Ost
My name is Cindy McIntyre, and I originally started the clinic back in 2001. I trained and qualified from the renowned British School of Osteopathy, which is now The University College of Osteopathy, and I was lucky enough to teach osteopathic technique, and examine final year students there for a number of years. I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).
I have a special interest in total body and mind wellness, and in chronic pain, and I see these as often inextricably linked. I also have many years experience treating pregnancy related pain, problems associated with babies and children, and sports injury’s. My approach varies dependent on the problem, and I can use massage and manipulation, dry needling acupuncture, and I have been using cranial osteopathy for many years. I believe it is important to continually update my cranial skills and I have done this by attending courses at the Sutherland Cranial College, and Jim Jealous’ Biodynamics of Osteopathy programme. My approach is to help relieve your pain with osteopathy, expert advice, education and management strategies.
I have continued to study at a high level after qualifying. After completing my doctoral thesis in 2016, from the British School of Osteopathy, I was one of the first two osteopaths in the world to receive an osteopathic doctorate. My research study was in osteopathic clinical reasoning, and reflective practice, with a particular interest in how osteopaths make clinical decisions. In 2020, I was lucky enough to be selected to become a Fellow on The International Osteopathy Research Leadership & Capacity Building Programme, established by Professor Jon Adams at University of Technology Sydney, School of Public Health. This aims to increase the research base of osteopathy, and to build leadership capacity within the profession. A lovely part of this opportunity has been making long lasting connections and friends with other Fellows on the programme.
In my spare time I am a keen golfer, and love messing about on the water. I love immersing myself in the natural world, it is a vital part of health and wellbeing, and I believe that humanity is embracing a peaceful transition toward a regenerative future.
