About Boniface

As you may guess from the name, Boniface is French. He graduated from the European School of Osteopathy after 2 years in medical university in France and 4 years osteopathic training in the UK. He has been practising in England for 6 years and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

He started his career at the IMC, the first Integrated Medical Centre in Europe, where he was exposed to numerous interesting and unusual cases. His experience there convinced him that the key to providing the best care for his patients is to work collaboratively with doctors and other complementary therapists. (Where appropriate, this might include working with practitioners in psychotherapy, NLP, Yoga, Pilates, and Chinese or Ayurvedic medicine.)

Boniface also worked for 5yrs at Destination Health and Fitness, where he worked closely with martial art fighters (Krav Maga, Karate, and Muay Thai) to improve their physical performance and to help them recover from their frequent injuries.

Today Boniface works in three practices to continue developing his different fields of expertise:

  • Integrated Osteopathy
  • Sports Injuries
  • Pregnancy Care
  • Newborn Care (Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy)

Boniface uses the full range of techniques offered by an Integrated Osteopath:

  • Adjustments, mobilisation and soft tissue work
  • Visceral osteopathy: gentle manipulation of abdominal organs to release referred pains
  • Cranio-sacral osteopathy
  • Acupuncture and cupping

His mixed conventional and osteopathic training gives him an unusual approach to treating his patients, and allows him to concentrate on the origin of his patient's symptoms, rather than focusing on the symptoms themselves. By treating patients in this way, he can help them achieve more lasting relief from discomfort.
