She has taught at BCOM since 2000 in various capacities from clinic and technique tutor to lecturer and Module Leader in Nutrition and Visceral Osteopathy. Recently she completed a certificate in Health and Wellbeing coaching to enable her to better facilitate lifestyle change with those seeking help.
In clinical practice Antonia looks at systems integration as key to many presenting signs and symptoms. This means that even if you are presenting with musculoskeletal pain, she might screen other body systems for dysregulation; considering your digestive, lymphatic, immune, nervous and hormonal systems to ascertain if there are factors driving your particular presentation rather than purely mechanical and postural influences. This is more likely to be the case where pain is part of a complex or long-term presentation. Antonia works across the age spectrum and will liaise with the physiotherapists if need be, to help plan back to health strategies across the professional skill set at The Practice.
