Meet the Balanced Osteopathy 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 every week day 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 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at Balanced Osteopathy.

Rebecca Thomas 

"I trained as an Osteopath for four years at Oxford Brookes University where I graduated in 2015 with my Masters in Osteopathy. I worked in my home country, Northern Ireland for a year before moving to Brisbane, Australia where I worked as an Osteopath for almost three years. Whilst in Australia, I worked in a busy integrated healthcare clinic alongside a wide variety of practitioners which helped to expand my knowledge and range of techniques. I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council and The Institute of Osteopathy.


I completed my 350-hour Yoga Teacher training in Australia and qualified in; vinyasa, hatha, yin, meditation, restorative, roll and release and pre-and post-natal yoga.

My aim as an Osteopath is to help people discover how great their bodies can feel. A typical session with me may include; soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, spinal manipulation, breathing techniques, goal-setting and you’ll never leave without some strength and conditioning homework! I love treating a wide variety of issues, from everyday aches and pains to chronic pain. I have developed a passion for neck pain, low back pain, running injuries, shoulder pain, pregnancy-related pain, scoliosis and Women’s Health issues. However, you don’t have to have pain or an injury to book an appointment with me, I believe preventative treatment is just as important!"

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