Hannah Lougee MOst DO ND BSc (Hons)
Hannah graduated with Distinction from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011, having previously obtained a First Class Degree in Biological Sciences with Medical Biology Honours at the University of Edinburgh.
Using her extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, neurology and nutrition, alongside well-developed structural osteopathic techniques, Hannah aims to support the body in stimulating its own healing mechanisms, creating the optimum environment for restoring and maximising ongoing good health.
Treatment is tailored to each individual, specifically targeted to alleviate symptoms, remove the underlying causes of discomfort and ultimately improve your mobility and sense of well-being in a safe, welcoming and professional environment.
In addition to her general practice work, Hannah has a special interest in the use of Osteopathy in both ante and postnatal care, with treatment playing a supportive role both during and after pregnancy. This can both help prevent and limit the various aches and pains which often result from the postural and biomechanical changes associated with pregnancy.
Hannah has recently published a paper in The Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies concerning the use of placebo treatments in randomised controlled trials of manipulative therapy.
Shambhu Manandhar MOst
Shambhu graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2011 and is the first and only osteopath from Nepal. Shambhu is a structurally based GOsC registered osteopath and believes that Osteopathy is a great way to relieve musculoskeletal pain: by realigning the spine, the body finds its balance. Osteopathy doesn’t only take into account issues from your muscles or your bones. It understands the tight links between the mind and body, and how sometimes mental stress or issues can affect the body.
Shambhu is trained in Western Medical Acupuncture (WMA).
In WMA dry needles are inserted into areas of the body to reduce pain by creating some physiological changes. It is based on modern anatomy, physiology and pathology and is evidence-based medicine. “The satisfaction in helping others improve their health and to know how the body works is wonderful."
Shambhu has a Buddhist background and believes mind and body to be strongly linked to each other. For this reason, he did his master’s dissertation on mindfulness, breathing and its physiological effect on the muscles.
Shambhu is a keen photographer, musician and enjoys sports – he was a junior runner–up national gymnastic champion. He is fluent in Newari, Nepali, French and English.
