Sandra Tamakloe - Principal Osteopath

  • BSc. (Hons) Ost.
  • MSc. Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation.
  • APPI Pilates Instructor.
  • Kinesiology taping techniques.
  • Certificate in Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling).
  • Clinic Tutor at the European School of Osteopathy.

My name is Sandra Tamakloe, I graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 2009, where I am now a Clinic Tutor. I have always been interested in health and fitness from when I was at school. I love the versatility of being able to treat a range of patients from as young as a week old through to patients in their 90s.

I use a range of treatments varying, but not limited to structural, cranial, dry needling, and visceral techniques.

I love treating babies who can present with various issues and I also enjoy working with prenatal and postnatal patients, helping ensure ‘core’ restoration, particularly Diastasis Recti and providing exercises to help with this.

I have a keen interest in treating sports injuries which led me to complete a Masters in Sports Therapy and rehabilitation in 2013. I have trained with APPI in Pilates which is more rehabilitative to help patients particularly those with lower back and upper back issues.

I teach classes locally and also offer 1:1 assessments and sessions in the clinic.

I am a firm believer in self-help and will equip patients with advice, exercises and stretches to work on alongside their treatment. I am also a member of the faculty at the European School of Osteopathy as a Clinic Tutor as well as in the Research Department where I have been involved in publishing research.

In my spare time, I love listening to audiobooks and podcasts, going to the gym and spending time with my husband and very energetic sons building dens, bike-riding, woodland walks and anything adventurous!

Héloïse Gilleman - Associate Osteopath

BSc. (Hons) Ost.

Héloïse graduated with a Master’s degree from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO). Within her practice, Héloïse believes in the importance of looking at the patient as a whole to understand why the patient came into the clinic. She uses a broad range of gentle hands on techniques such as cranial osteopathy, visceral manipulation, etc which allow her to treat the patients as a whole. Over the years post-graduation, Héloïse has completed further courses in relation to women’s health and paediatric osteopathy. Whilst she has a particular interest in treating pre/post-partum mums and babies, she still enjoys treating a broad range of patients.

In her free time, Héloïse enjoys keeping active and anything that involves being outdoors. She loves travelling and spending time with family and friends.

Melanie Braam - Pilates Instructor

After intensive training in Paris and New York, I certified with Romana’s Pilates. I went on to run my own studio in Aix-en-Provence, before moving back to the UK. I have been teaching, mentoring and training teachers since 2004. 

My background and career in dance bring an influence of fluidity to my teaching and a sharp eye for detail. 

My seasoned and intuitive approach, combined with my Life Coaching skills allow me to help you focus on deepening your connection with your body, developing technical precision and safely pushing through your physical and mental barriers. 

I can’t wait to work with you!

Tegan Watson - Pilates Instructor

After struggling with back pain for years Tegan reluctantly went to a Pilates class as advised by a GP, thinking that it would be super easy and not worth her time – so wrong! She found the regular mat classes hugely improved her posture and back pain, and this developed into a huge love for Pilates.
 
Tegan then started coming to our Reformer Pilates classes and really enjoyed how it made her body feel and the strength and agility she gained from it! Tegan loved it so much that her journey with Pilates training started. She is now trained in both Mat & Reformer Pilates with the APPI which is a method developed by physios and she loves to share her story and passion with others!
 
Her classes are super fun, dynamic, challenging but most of all FUN!
