Joanna completed her Osteopathic studies at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) in London in 2009. As the now third-generation Osteopath in her family, Joanna was always inspired by the positive patient recovery stories she would hear growing up. Initially she studied Sociology at the University of Abderdeen, followed by a short stint in the travel and marketing world, before realising her true calling to join her family’s profession of Osteopathy.
Joanna really enjoys the empowerment Osteopathy gives to her patients as they realise what they can achieve with good body movement and posture, and how they can stay well as they enjoy the benefits of Osteopathic treatment. Joanna’s positive attitude inspires patients to get the best out of their treatments with her.
Joanna has an interest in nutrition and its role in musculoskeletal health, and enjoys the challenge of seeing a wide array of patient presentations in her general clinical practice including babies to the elderly, sportspeople to those in desk-based jobs.
Joanna is registered with the General Osteopathic Council, is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and is the Chairwoman of the Scottish Osteopathic Society which organises professional development courses in Scotland for Osteopaths.
Joanna frequently uses Shockwave (Focus and Radial) Therapy and IDD Therapy alongside spinal manipulation and general osteopathic techniques in her practice.
Beyond treating patients and running the practice with her husband Michael, Joanna spends her free time with family and friends, usually over a good meal or a beautiful walk! Joanna loves reading, most outdoor pursuits including occasional (!) wild camping, and seeking out exciting new restaurants to enjoy delicious food!
Michael completed his degree at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM), graduating in 2009. Prior to beginning his studies Michael was a keen footballer, and found his way to Osteopathy via his own injury on the football field. It was during his time in London at BCOM where he met Joanna, and the rest is happy history (and future!).
Michael has a particular interest in back pain and tendon injuries, and frequently uses spinal manipulation and adjustment techniques as part of his treatment protocols to get his patients on the fastest route to recovery.
Michael uses Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) and was one of the first Osteopaths in the UK to be registered with the International Society of Medical Shockwave Treatment (ISMST).
Michael is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and the Scottish Osteopathic Society.
Michael is passionate about introducing the latest treatment technologies to the practice, including IDD Therapy.
Outside of work, Michael enjoys a busy family life with his wife Joanna, two young children and 2 dogs. Weekends are spent getting outdoors as much as possible, catching up with friends and extended family. Michael is also known for his passion for ‘survival skills’ and has completed a 5-day Bear Grylls Survival course in a remote part of the Scottish Highlands - then returning straight back to work the next day!
Bradley graduated from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) in July 2021 and then moved back to Glasgow with his partner Anina to become the first associate under Michael and Joanna.
Through a series of injuries in his late teens/early twenties, Bradley - after having unsuccessfully tried many other treatment options - finally found relief and recovery with his local Osteopath. This inspired Bradley, who has had previous careers in civil engineering and emergency health care, to become an Osteopath.
Bradley enjoys using the whole spectrum of osteopathic techniques and rehabilitation exercises to treat a wide variety of patient presentations, though he has a keen interest in temperomandibular dysfunction ( jaw pain/injury) and also maternity/post-natal patients.
Bradley is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and the Scottish Osteopathic Society.
Bradley grew up in Nairn in the stunning Scottish Highlands, where he grew a love for the great outdoors. Away from the practice, Bradley enjoys staying active going hill walking and taking his dog (Alva) for long walks, as well weight-lifting in the gym when the weather is not so great!
Anina lived in Denmark before moving to the UK to study and was brought to Osteopathy through a close family friend whilst looking for a career that would allow her to work with a wide range of people.
Anina graduated from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) in July 2020 and worked in Kent before moving to Glasgow with her partner Bradley in 2021.
Anina enjoys treating babies, the elderly and everyone in-between by using a variety of osteopathic techniques, including spinal manipulation, that allow her to tailor the treatment to the individual patient. Anina has a particular interest in post-injury rehabilitation. Anina enjoys combining both Focus and Radial Shockwave Therapy and IDD Therapy as part of her treatment plans for optimal patient outcomes.
Anina is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and the Scottish Osteopathic Society.
Away from the practice, Anina enjoys staying active by doing Pilates and taking her dog Alva for walks. Anina also enjoys reading and challenging herself to try new craft activities - she is an especially good knitter!
Michelle studied at Staffordshire University with the College of Osteopaths in Stoke-On-Trent, graduating in 2022.
Previously, Michelle was a Sports Massage Therapist though she discovered she had a yearning to learn and understand more the causes of pain and injury, and how to create the optimal environment for the body to achieve long-term recovery and good musculoskeletal health. Michelle recalls “I had, through working, injured my own back and had treatment from an Osteopath who not only helped with my lower back pain but made me realise this was the career for me.”
Michelle enjoys working with all types of patients and musculoskeletal issues. As well as using traditional Osteopathic techniques, including spinal adjustments, Michelle utilises both Focus and Radial Shockwave Therapy and IDD Therapy as part of her daily practice.
Michelle is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and the Scottish Osteopathic Society.
Outside of Osteopathy, Michelle can be found at the beach or in the woods walking alongside her wife Paula and her two Pomeranians Ruxpin and Gizmo. Michelle also plays rugby for Bishopton Ladies Rugby Club, is a huge Harry Potter fan and relaxes with a good jigsaw and being surrounded by family and friends.
