Meet the Osteopaths
NATIA PANTELIDOU BOst DCO

Following this, Natia furthered her education by undertaking a diploma at the Institute of Classical Osteopathy. Additionally she studdied medical acupuncture (or ‘dry needling’), which she uses to treat musculoskeletal conditions.
Following a year of practice in London, Natia moved to Northern England where she undertook an associate position at one of the busiest practices in Leeds (The Good Health Centre). Here she worked for a period of 4 years where she gained invaluable experience.
Areas of Interest
Natia uses both structural and cranial approaches to treat patients of all ages from babies to the elderly. She aims to gain a deep understanding of the patient's lifestyle as well as the nature of the symptoms. In this way she can help people not only through treatment, but by also giving advice on day to day activities, exercises and stretches. Her training in clinical pilates has reinforced her abilities to help patients regain their strength and core stability in order to get back to their daily life.
EMILIANA ORFORD M.Ost
Emiliana is a dual nationality British/Cypriot Osteopath, born and raised in Cyprus.
After her school education in Limassol, she moved to London where she completed a four-year integrated Master’s degree in Osteopathy, at the University College of Osteopathy (formally known as the British School of Osteopathy). There she gained invaluable experience working at the UCO general clinic as well as the UCO specialized clinics.
Emiliana uses a modern holistic approach, that she adopted from her education and later enhanced by post graduate courses, regional osteopathic meetings and study groups. For her treatments she applies a wide range of manual therapies, including manipulative, structural and fascial release techniques.
She also took additional courses in London in the use of Dry Needling and Kinesio Taping therapies, which she uses in conjunction with her standard therapies in order to help deliver a better level of care, aid rehabilitation and speed up recovery.
Emiliana has a special interest in the rehabilitation of sports related injuries. In addition, she is experienced in delivering osteopathic care to expectant mothers. Her experience from working in the UCO expectant mothers’ clinic was enhanced after taking an additional course in obstetrics and gynaecology. Her aim is to treat everyone with patience, understanding and empathy.
