Sujin Park - Osteopath
Since graduating as a physiotherapist from Yonsei University in South Korea, I
have treated patients with exercise to correct dysfunctional movement. To extend
my knowledge of exercise I have studied Rehabilitation Pilates, which makes the
training more diverse and exciting for my patients. Pilates is an interesting workout
based on simple exercises with a focus on posture and breathing, which can be
applied to even to elderly patients.
However, I met a patient who suffered from psychological and physical trauma. I
could not help her with Physiotherapy nor Pilates and she experienced great results
from osteopathic treatment.
I have always been interested in the connection between mind and body, and a
treatment approach bringing both of them together was a new and exciting idea for me.
At that point, I knew I need to know more about Osteopathy. After a few courses in South Korea, I arrived at the conclusion that the best way to learn this amazing treatment approach is to do the full 4-year program at the European School
of Osteopathy in the UK.
After I have finished my study at the ESO, I am looking forward to treating patients
again and I never want to stop improving my skills and learning new techniques.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I feel great fulfilment to see my patients getting better with my treatments and that my humble contributions could improve their quality of life. I enjoy listening to them and learning from them.
