June 2017 was a landmark month in the Knott family household. It marked the opening of my own clinic and realising the dream of working from home and building a practice.
From the day I decided I wanted to become an osteopath, over 15 years ago, I’d dreamt of having my own clinic. After qualifying in 2008 it wasn’t long before I fell pregnant and decided those plans had to be put on hold until I could give my clinic and my business the time it deserved.
Being an osteopath
For the last 10 years I have not sat idle! To be an osteopath you have to sustain and build personal knowledge by undertaking 30 hours of continued professional development per year.
I’ve attended some fantastic courses to improve my skills including; diagnosing and treating sports injuries, facilitating good health during pregnancy, ergonomics and posture in the work place, and many more. As well as bringing up two little children and working as an osteopath part time in a High Wycombe multi-disciplinary clinic!
After 9 years as a practicing Osteopath, I’m so excited to report that the timing, and capital required all came together to realise my dream.
Now the hard work really starts as I am building up my practice via word of mouth, referrals and local marketing and advertising. I love working and hope that the calming energy of the log cabin treatment room will attract many people to see what osteopathy is all about and improve the quality of their lives.
I look forward to welcoming you to Oak Tree Osteopathy!
