This month we’re very excited to welcome Sara Castoldi to the Osteopathy West London team. Sara is an extremely talented osteopath and we couldn’t be happier to have her on board.
So, what better way to introduce her than with a quick Q&A?!
Why did you want to become an osteopath?
I’ve always been fascinated by the holistic approach of osteopathy. Osteopathy considers the patient as a whole which is central in the therapeutic process. Having the chance to seriously improve a person’s lifestyle and help them live life to the full is truly exciting and makes me feel very proud!
Where did you study?
I studied at Istituto Superiore di Osteopatia in Milan, where I completed a five-years Master’s degree in Osteopathy.
Is there anyone you’ve helped that really stands out for you?
Of course. I used to treat a girl who suffers from Marfan’s syndrome, a rare genetic disease which affects her musculoskeletal system. She found osteopathic treatment a good support for managing the symptoms related to her condition. Now she is my biggest fan!
Are there any areas which you specialise in?
I’m currently attending a Postgraduate Course in Specialist Paediatric in Osteopathic Practice at University College of Osteopathy in London. I love treating babies, children and pregnant women as I believe that osteopathy has huge potentials in this field.
What part of London have you moved to?
I have just moved to Primrose Hill in North London! Now that the weather is better I love walking around the area although being Italian you’ll usually find me with my coat and scarf on. I still haven’t quite managed to get used to the British weather!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I’m a very sporty person and I love to be active whenever I can. I’m really into free body workouts at the moment and love the challenges it brings.
What’s the one thing you simply couldn’t live without?
I’m Italian, therefore I would say food! I love pizza, as everybody does, but I am a big fan of healthy eating as well.
If you weren’t an osteopath, what would you be doing?
I’ve always been very curious and I love writing so if I wasn’t an osteopath I think I’d probably be a journalist. In the scientific field of course!
As well as treating adults, Sara specialises in treating new-born babies, young children and pregnant women and really brings a new dynamic to our practice.
