Meet the Team

Rebecca Root

GOsC registered 8945


"I trained as an Osteopath at Oxford Brookes University, where I obtained my first class honours degree in Osteopathy. I currently practice as both an Osteopath and Sports Massage therapist, registered with the General Osteopathic Council and the Institute of Osteopathy and set up Balanced Osteopathy in October of 2014.


For me, osteopathy is about identifying musculoskeletal imbalances and altered biomechanics that have built up over time and led to injury. I treat in a structural way to restore balance to the whole body and reduce pain, and believe that an important part of what I do is educating people about how their own body works and what tweaks can be made to their normal routine to prevent recurrence of injury e.g changing running style, specific strength work or adjusting a desk set up!

I enjoy working with a variety of different clients and have experience treating a spectrum of musculoskeletal complaints. My passion for rehabilitation has resulted in a special focus on treating runners injuries, as well as a keen interest in pre and post-natal treatment."

Rebecca is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at Balanced Osteopathy.

Jared Cox

GOsC registered 9885


"I received my Masters in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy in London, UK, and am a registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council. I am also a qualified Holistic Nutritionist and Personal Trainer.


My aim as a practitioner is to help patients reach their health goal, whether it be to become pain free, prevent future injuries or achieve a higher level of health and fitness, by using a combination of Osteopathy, Nutrition and Functional Exercise. 


Spending many years competing in track and field, ice hockey and rugby, I have a special interest in treating athletes, but also enjoy treating patients of all ages with musculoskeletal injuries, digestive issues, headaches, sleep troubles and more."

Jared is available Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at Balanced Osteopathy.

Emilie Taillardat

GOsC registered 10507


"I studied at the University College of Osteopathy, receiving a Master's degree with distinction. I am a registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council and the Institute of Osteopathy; a qualified sports massage therapist and certified in functional rehabilitation techniques.


My strengths lie in structural treatment techniques and personalised management advice, in order to enable patients to support their own healing. My clinical experience has allowed me to work with a diverse patient population including individuals suffering from chronic pain and persons with complex rheumatological presentations.


As a runner and cyclist, I understand the joy and demand that endurance exercise puts on the body and specialise in treating sports-related injuries. I enjoy combining my personal experience in sports with my professional understanding to optimise the health and recovery of patients."

Emilie is available Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at Balanced Osteopathy.
