Mark Mshila

Mark Mshila MOstMark graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a Masters of Osteopathy Degree in 2020.

Growing up, Mark developed an interest in martial arts and health and spent a few years studying and practising martial arts in Beijing, China. This led to an interest in health, nutrition, and a curiosity in how the body works, eventually leading to the discovery of Osteopathy.

Over the years, Mark has attended various seminars on neuromuscular rehabilitation, nutrition and tissue repair. With a growing interest in the various aspects of health and wellbeing not only from a biomedical point of view, but also a psychosocial perspective, he hopes to learn and apply these principles to helping people get better quickly and, importantly, stay that way.

Elyse Smythe

Verena-Meet-The-TeamElyse has always been inspired by the body and the way in which it responds to the different stresses and strains that it faces throughout life. Following this passion, she graduated from The University of Leeds with a First-class degree in Medical Science, which laid the foundations for a future career in healthcare.

Seeking out a more holistic and hands-on approach to treating a patient, Elyse then looked to Osteopathy, completing a Masters in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy in London. 

Elyse would describe herself as a general practice osteopath as she enjoys treating the whole family from expectant mums to children and the elderly. Elyse has worked closely with Melinda to develop her skills in treating babies. She believes that osteopathy can successfully restore a feeling of wellness to any person by supporting the body’s innate healing processes.

Elyse tailors her treatments to the individual person, in order to promote good health and prevent symptoms reoccurring. Similarly, Elyse uses a variety of techniques within treatment, guided by the patient and their unique needs. This may include soft-tissue work, joint mobilisation, gentle fascial techniques, and lifestyle or rehabilitation advice.

Growing up in London, Elyse has always been active and loves attending challenging walks and charity runs. She has a young family which has given her first-hand experience in the benefits of osteopathy for pregnancy, post-natal and little ones in their first few years of life.

"I saw Verena for difficulties with breastfeeding and recurrent blocked ducts. Was great to have continuity for treating both myself and my baby. She was lovely, very helpful and gentle with both of us. Her massage techniques, exercises and follow up information were excellent and very much helped me unblock the milk ducts much quicker and with no pain involved compared to previous very painful techniques we were doing. Generally feel more relaxed and breastfeeding is much more enjoyable. Thank you!" - Hannah Z

"I've been going to ostheopaths for years now, treating a reoccurring chronic pain in my wrist and shoulder." - iRain

"Verena was the first ostheopath to look into my wrist with more attention attention details and find the root cause of my pain. Through a series of treatments, aimed at breaking down years of old patterns and realigning my body she managed to relieve my pain completely. She also showed me how to keep mobile and recommended other treatments to help keep the issue at bay."

"I would highly recommend her to anyone with chronic pain. Verena takes time to assess and understand the body with great detail and is very thorough with her treatment. "

"Having suffered with RSI for many months leaving me in constant pain which was so debilitating, I sceptically decided to see an osteopath. After just 2 sessions with Verena, I could not believe the difference in my body. The neck pain, the arm pain the headaches just lifted and I finally felt like me again. My only regret is that I did not see Verena sooner. She is absolutely amazing and explained everything she was doing each step of the way. I am truly amazed and thankful for her skill and knowledge and will continue to see her every month for prevention rather than cure. I could not recommend her more highly." - Susie M

Constantinos Theodosiou

Theodosiou- Meet the teamConstantinos was introduced to osteopathy by a family friend after exhausting most other forms of pain management for his lower back. His active lifestyle resulted in constant aches and pains until he discovered first-hand the difference good osteopathic treatment can make.

He uses a holistic approach including ergonomics, simple exercise and small lifestyle adjustments to treat pain caused by stress, sport injuries, migraines and headaches in patients from 7 years old. He is now training with Melinda, learning expert techniques for working with babies and younger children.

“Feeling comfortable in your own body is essential, even doing simple things like getting out of bed or sitting down for dinner. I have always enjoyed playing basketball and skiing, and now I am training hard to improve my climbing and Jiu Jitsu to develop the great body awareness, precise movement and technique they require - attributes of a great athlete, and a great osteopath!” - Constantinos

Reviews

"I went to see Tino after I hurt my back lifting heavy plant pots! He has been just incredible; after the first visit alone, I was feeling so much better. I have had 4 visits in total and am now fully back to normal with no pain at all. Super big shout out to this osteopath who has a great manner and huge knowledge." - Julia W

"Was recommended Fulham Osteopaths from my cousin (who practises at an unrelated London Clinic) and have been receiving treatment from Tino for a couple of months. We’ve made fantastic progress; my posture has significantly improved my neck and shoulder pain has reduced hugely. I can now throw a ball, play tennis again and have started rowing which is amazing. Couldn’t recommend more." - Mike P

"I have been visiting Fulham Osteopaths since September 2020, since then I have already felt a huge difference with my back pain. I would highly recommend seeing Tino.

" I went to F. O. because of a knee pain, with slight inflammation and clicking. I
booked with Katherine. She was very thorough in the assessment, and my knees are
now back to their normal state. She also has a very friendly attitude that made me
comfortable. I am satisfied and have already booked for a future check-up
appointment.

Reviews

I would highly recommend Giulia, we sought her advice for our baby girl who was experiencing episodes of colic since birth. She was able to pinpoint the problem very quickly, and we’ve noticed improvement after each session. She gave us clear and simple instructions to follow at home, to enhance and maintain results achieved during the sessions. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and reassuring. - Elena Z

Baby and I attended the clinic following a glowing recommendation. We had a brilliant experience with Giulia. We saw improvements after every session - she works wonders. Thank you so much! - Tajinder K

I have been using Fulham Osteopaths for about a year and I couldn't recommend them more highly! As an office worker with occasionally-acute muscular pains in my lower back (especially since the start of lockdown), Fulham Osteopaths have done a very professional, caring and competent job at looking after my health. I will definitely keep using them as I go back to the office and to exercising regularly again. - Andrea Enrico S
