We are delighted to announce the opening of our new practice at 959-961 Fulham Road, SW6 5HY. The practice benefits from three treatment rooms, a spacious reception area and a separate pilates/yoga studio.
Working alongside Isabel Diaz (Osteopath and Midwife) are Tommi Sliiden (Osteopath and Remedial Massage Therapist), Anna Wylie (Osteopath) and Wioleta Bialy (Physiotherapist).
Tommi trained at the British School of Osteopathy and was one of the first to be awarded a M.Sc in Performing Arts Medicine at University College London. He offers osteopathic treatment and massage therapy to everyone, but specialises in performers, musicians and other theatre workers and their specific problems and is particularly interested in voice and breathing. His work regularly takes him into West End theatres, national dance and opera companies, orchestras, film and TV, and he often visits touring companies around the UK.
Tommi originally trained at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and worked as a performer for over 20 years within dance and music theatre, internationally and in London’s West End. Having performed in Cats in the past, Tommi has been the resident Osteopath for the cast and crew of Cats at the Palladium theatre, frequently visiting the national tour.
During his Osteopathic treatments, Tommi incorporates various techniques and methods, including:
• Joint manipulations / articulations
• Deep tissue / Sports massage
• Exercise advice
• Deep tissue/sports massage, often focused on specific problem areas, with a specific aim, using various techniques. Often more vigorous, with more pressure, and can be complemented with stretches, if needed.
• Remedial massage specifically focusing on areas that are important for the voice production:
o Throat / Neck
o Ribs / Diaphragm
o Jaw / Tongue (including inside mouth using gloves)
Tommi is available for bookings all day Monday, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and some weekends.
Anna has always been interested in the human body and having a healthy lifestyle. Having enjoyed several sports growing up and requiring help with injuries, she realised the power of Osteopathy.
Anna qualified from The British School Of Osteopathy with a distinction and silver medal award. Prior to training as an Osteopath, she graduated from the University of Exeter where she gained a BSc (Hons) degree in Human Bioscience. Alongside the training to be an Osteopath she trained at the renowned London School of Sports Massage and has enjoyed treating patients for a number of years.
Through Anna’s training she was able to experience working with a wide variety of patients including expectant mothers, geriatrics, professional athletes and those with acute and chronic conditions.
The holistic approach of Osteopathy is something Anna is very passionate about. She tries to arm her patients with the tools and the understanding to reduce the risk of further injuries to ensure her patients can get back to the things they love long term.
Anna offers and uses a number of different techniques based on the nature of her patient’s complaint to ensure long lasting results. She loves a challenge and is really excited to be part of the holistic and experienced team at Fulham Osteopathic Care.
Anna is available for bookings all day Tuesday and Thursday, on Friday mornings and some weekends.
Wioleta has worked in the private sector since she graduated from the University of Rzeszow in 2009. She gained a wide variety of experience in treating both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Wioleta is a fully qualified, highly motivated physiotherapist with a clinical focus to provide the highest quality physiotherapy treatment for each patient individually and holistically. Wioleta communicates effectively and sensitively with all her patients to maximise their rehabilitation and to ensure full understanding of often complex clinical issues impacting on their recovery.
Wioleta quickly responds to symptomatic changes and is highly responsive with a positive hands-on deep tissue approach and uses both manual therapy and soft tissue techniques in her treatments, balanced with assessing muscle imbalance and core stability and providing appropriate advice and exercises to prevent injury recurrence. The treatment methods she also uses include Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Muscle Energy Techniques, Deep Tissue and Sport massage, Manual Lymphatic drainage and Kinesio Taping Method to match the individual needs of each patient.
Wioleta specialises in the musculoskeletal bio-mechanical conditions, posture and movement.
