Your Osteopath – Jonathan Poston

Jonathan qualified as an osteopath over 30 years ago. Not only has he been in clinical practice all that time he has also been involved in education (as a senior tutor on the osteopathic degree course at Oxford Brookes University for seven years) and was at the forefront of the development of the osteopathic profession, as a founding council member of the British Osteopathic Association.

He continues to work in his busy practice in Matlock in Derbyshire where he now lives. He spent 10 years with a busy equine practice and was involved with natural horsemanship and had 3 horses. These days however, he is focused on his human practice as well as teaching his own particular approach to Craniosacral Therapy.

Jonathan’s style of osteopathy, honed over a lifetime, is gentle and effective. He uses traditional structural osteopathic and soft-tissue massage techniques in combination with cranial osteopathy and craniosacral therapy.

The diversity of his practice is best expressed by those who have recommended him: local midwives send new mums to him with their new babies (he worked in the past at the Osteopathic Centre for Children), he treats musicians (when in Manchester he had a contract with the Halle orchestra) and he also used to treat dancers working in Manchester theatres (he was registered with Dance UK).

Osteopaths treat a lot more than JUST bad backs!
