Osteopath Ed Cossart

Edward Cossart

Clinic Director & Osteopath

Edward gained a first-class applied masters degree in osteopathy from the world-renowned European School of Osteopathy. He was a student of leading osteopaths, learning osteopathic techniques including visceral, structural, myofascial, functional and cranio-sacral. His anatomy tutors included multi award-winning Osteopath Gerry Carter and internationally esteemed Professor of Anatomy, Frank Willard. In addition to other osteopathic courses, Edward’s training incorporated three years of medical imaging. As a result he is qualified to refer for diagnostic ultrasound, MRI, X-ray and CT scanning. This vastly improves his diagnostic capability, enabling a more accurate prognosis and safe selection of appropriate treatment.

Yoga Instructor

I first practiced yoga at school and dipped in and out for many years but in 1996 it took a serious illness to prompt me to take up yoga on a regular basis. Over the following years I found that not only did yoga help with the symptoms of the illness but was instrumental in the cure. It seemed natural to me to tell others of my success and I became a passionate advocate for the positive effects that yoga has on health and wellbeing. I trained to become a teacher with The British Wheel of Yoga under Paul Fox for three years and passed in 2009. Whilst training I started teaching so have been teaching for about 12 years. I regularly attend CPD yoga workshops and events that will improve my knowledge and understanding and so inform my teaching.
