My story begins before I was born with my grandfather, William Grunbaum, graduating from the British School of Osteopathy (renamed University College of Osteopathy) in 1948. Following in my grandfather’s footsteps, I obtained my Masters of Osteopathy in 2012 from the British School of Osteopathy. I became the 5th member of my family to qualify, becoming a 3rd generation osteopath.
Before studying osteopathy, I had completed my Bachelor of Science in Sports and Exercise Science from the University of Birmingham (UoB) in 2007. Whilst playing basketball for UoB I injured my left knee, tearing my medial meniscus and partially tearing my anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This ignited my passion for post injury treatment, rehabilitation and injury prevention training.
During my osteopathic studies I completed a Personal Training course with Future Fit Training, enabling me to provide effective exercises for my patients as well as train clients with a wide range of aims and goals. I have always been interested in keeping fit and active from a young age, and my passion is passed on to my clients through our sessions together.
Once completing my Masters of Osteopathy, I enrolled in acupuncture courses with the British Medical Acupuncture Society in 2012. This added another dimension to my range of treatments that I could provide.
Since qualifying as an osteopath, I have worked with Barnet Football Club (rehabilitation and pre-habilitation), Great Britain Synchronised Swimming Talent squad (flexibility and mobility) and Maccabi Great Britain Women’s Open Netball squad (court side assistance, warm ups, cool downs). This netball squad received a silver medal at the 20th Maccabiah Games 2017.
Continuing with my work with Maccabi GB, I was selected to join the Medical squad in the Maccabiah Games 2022. I was the primary medic for the U16 and U18 girls Netball squad. U16s finished with a silver medal whilst U18s came back with the gold.
