About Me

Hello, and welcome to Your-body, I’m Claire Bowmar, I am a qualified Osteopath, Sports therapist and Pilates instructor with a BSc Hons in Osteopathy from The College of Osteopaths and an ITEC qualification in Sports Massage and a level 3 Diploma in Teaching Mat Pilates.

I have always been a keen sports person having trained and competed up to national level in both swimming and horse riding. I am also a qualified Equine practitioner and have treated many riders and horses over the years from all disciplines of dressage, jumping, eventing, racing and endurance. It was my riding that led me to Osteopathy in the first place.

I was not performing to the level that was required and I realised that my posture was affecting my performance and my ability to win. Osteopathic treatment helped correct my posture problems and improve my performance. I also found that osteopathy again helped during my pregnancy when my posture was changing and it helped me to recover quickly following an operation that I had this year.

I now specialise in sports injuries, biomechanical and posture related pain prevention. As well as treating sports people, I also help with rehab following surgeries, pregnant women, people with arthritis (my oldest patient being 94!) and many people who suffer with back problems and other injuries from computer and work related issues.
