Jane Ducklin Bsc(Hons) DO
Jane qualified in 1991 from the British School of Osteopathy and after working internationally she settled in Tring in 1995, raising a family and building a community osteopathic practice.
Her work is centred around the relief of pain, and helping people to get the best out of their bodies.
She is particularly interested in getting to the root of recurrent problems so she will look at the whole body and the tensions within it, and take into account any traumas or lifestyle habits that could be contributory factors. In addition to hands-on treatment, she will work collaboratively with you to find manageable changes that will help you to take control again.
“I’m always amazed at the power of osteopathy to improve joint and muscle function. The resulting improvement in coordination of movement is remarkable and people often report also feeling so much better in themselves.”
Natalie Adam MSc BSc(Hons)
Natalie worked for four years at a physiotherapy clinic in Hertford, before working with Jane Ducklin in Tring.
She uses biomechanical assessment and a range of manual therapy techniques to provide treatment tailored to the individual needs of clients.
This could be to prevent, manage or recover from injury, pain or stiffness caused by sports, work, lifestyle, pathology or trauma, or to achieve a specific goal such as walking a certain distance, returning to hobbies, sports or work, or being able to pick up your child or grandchild.
Natalie works on all joints of the body and has a particular interest in pain perception or management strategies, pre- and post-natal musculoskeletal problems, and the effects of foot biomechanics on posture.
Outside of work she likes to keep active through running, cycling, swimming, paddle boarding and Pilates, and is currently training to be a Pilates instructor.
