COVID-19 updates:  

- I am taking THREE Lateral Flow Tests each week to ensure that I am safe to treat patients. If I test positive, I will isolate and follow up with a PCR test. I will be in touch to rearrange any appointments that will need to be cancelled.

- I am fully vaccinated.

 

- Despite relaxation in national COVID lockdown measures; my risk assessment is still in place: I continue to use full PPE (an IIR face-mask, nitrile gloves, and apron), sanitise the room's contact surfaces, expect patients to adhere to current COVID restrictions between appointments, wear a face mask during appointments and fill in the COVID screening questionnaire prior to arriving for their appointment 

 

- Unfortunately, because of high demand during this period, I am currently fully booked and can not take on any new patients.

WHAT CAN OSTEOPATHY DO FOR YOU?

Osteopaths are commonly known for treating back and neck pain; but we do so much more!

I love looking at problems caused by:

  • the demands placed on your body during pregnancy.

  • adopting habitual patterns while, for example, driving, working at a desk, or relaxing on your sofa with an iPad. 

  • overstraining when doing something you are unaccustomed to doing like moving a piece of heavy furniture, reaching awkwardly into a cupboard or tripping off a kerb.

  • arthritis, headaches arising from tension in the neck and shoulders, or minor sports injuries.

  • the complexities of chronic pain

When your body starts forcing you to slow down that's when you generally begin to focus on yourself. That's definitely when you should consider seeing an osteopath if not before!

I use a wide variety of gentle hands-on techniques that focus on releasing tension, improving mobility and optimising function.

I  assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of problems and am also trained to check for signs of serious conditions so that I can refer you to other healthcare professionals to ensure you receive the best possible care.

I take the time to understand each patient – your unique combination of symptoms, medical history and lifestyle. 

This leaf shows the complexity and simplicity of nature; just as osteopathy seeks to unfold the compexities of the musculoskeletal system to creat a simpl pathway for health. Victoria Diamond, osteopath in Borough, London and Sevenoaks, Kent, aims to treat those compexities and provide you with a simple pathway to health.
 

ABOUT ME

MY BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

I have a Masters in Osteopathy, a Post Graduate Certificate in Paediatric Osteopathy, am registered with The General Osteopathic Council, a member of the Sutherland College of Cranial Osteopathy, and an experienced, award holding Perrin Technique Practitioner.

In pursuit of my interest in treating Chronic Fatigue my London practice, Harper Road Osteopaths, now specialises in the osteopathic treatment of ME/CFS. I trained in the Perrin Technique with Dr Raymond Perrin and started using his approach in 2014, became an advanced practitioner in 2019 and I now assist Dr Perrin in the practical elements of his London based courses.

I have studied and practice in the field of cranial osteopathy and became a Member of the Sutherland College of Cranial Osteopathy in 2019.

As part of my commitment to pursuing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) I have undertaken studies in cranial osteopathy, chronic pain (one of the few practitioners trained in OsteoMap - a technique involving ACT, Mindfulness and Osteopathy), women's health, medical acupuncture, Pilates matwork and kinesio-taping and I regularly use a variety of techniques within any one treatment. 

I divide my week between my own small practice, Harper Road Osteopaths in London Bridge,  The Manor Clinic in Sevenoaks and The Walled Garden in Hildenborough. The rest of the time finds me gardening and hiking.

MY PRACTICES

I set up and ran Cloud Active Therapies in Waterloo in 2011 which became Union City Therapies when we moved to Elephant and Castle in London in 2014. I then renamed the practice Harper Road Osteopaths in 2019 when we moved to Borough. I now work there with co-owner Lorna Rose, another osteopath and good friend.

Whilst waiting for the London practice to become busy in it's early days I started working at The Manor Clinic in Sevenoaks in 2015 to provide maternity cover for an old clinic tutor of mine. You can still find me there 2 days a week as, although the London practice did become busy, I love the change of environment and the different faces!

A leaf is true expression of nature at its most beautiful. Osteopathy works with the bodies natural adaptations to aid repair and promote health. Trusting in nature is one of the bst things we can do as humans. Victoria Diamond, osteopath in Borough, London and Sevenoaks Kent.
