Mary Bolingbroke

I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in 1992 and have always included the care of horses and dogs in my work. From 1995 I worked at the Osteopathic Centre for Children treating babies and expectant mothers, gaining valuable experience in caring for patients with more serious illness and disability. I also taught at the BSO and set up a multi-disciplinary clinic in London. In 1999 I moved to Devon to work in a hospice providing osteopathic palliative care and also worked for Sure Start looking after pre-school children and their families. In 2005 my partner and I moved to beautiful Wiltshire where I work at the Church Street Practice in Bradford on Avon, Lowbourne Osteopaths in Melksham and Marlborough House in Taunton.  I teach paediatric osteopathy at the Daisy Clinic in Clonmel, Ireland and I have special interest in teaching about teenage brain development.

I graduated from the BSO in 1999, winning the Silver Medal as best student in my year. I have post-graduate qualifications in cranial osteopathy and a Masters degree in Paediatric Osteopathy. I am a Fellow of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, Member of the Institute of Osteopathy and Sutherland Society. As well as treating people at the Church Street Practice, I do some post-graduate teaching in cranial osteopathy. I enjoy treating horses and dogs using these gentle and subtle techniques. I have lifelong experience of caring for and riding horses, from Pony Club and hunting in my youth to riding point-to-point horses today.
