    ABOUT

    Elsa Dechaux is a graduate from the College of Osteopaths (North London), and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). She has comprehensive professional insurance. She has lived in Tottenham for 10 years, and is keen to develop a community-based practice (Tottenham Osteopathy) in an area often described as “deprived” and lacking a range of alternative therapies.

     

    Although most of her work is private, she has developed contacts with local GP practices, which can now refer patients for NHS work (subject to prior funding approval). Her treatments use a variety of techniques, ranging from cranio-sacral osteopathy and lymphatic drainage to more structural techniques such as soft-tissue manipulation, joints mobilisation or high-velocity techniques. Elsa has recently completed additional training for treatment during pregnancy. She discovered osteopathy after suffering in her 20s from chronic back problems, unhelped by conventional medical care.

     

    Although she holds a PhD in pharmaceutical chemistry and was a researcher for several years, she strongly believes in the body’s natural healing ability and that health is a combination of lifestyle and positive mental attitude. She doesn’t agree with treatment beyond what is necessary and promotes patient education, emphasising exercise, healthy diet and mindfulness. She practiced yoga for many years, and is a keen cyclist and swimmer.

    Overall
    Wait time
    Bedside manner
    I visited Elsa with chronic lower back pain (due to sedentary lifestyle and bad sitting posture). This was the very first time I visited an osteopath and I was somewhat wary of what to expect. Elsa combined professionalism with a genuine warmth and friendliness that made me feel calm, reassured and in good hands throughout the appointment. She took careful notes of my medical history, exercise routine, the number of hours I spend sitting, etc. She looked at my overall posture and used massage, manipulations and stretching to ease my pain. I found her techniques gentle but very effective, plus she gave me a set of exercises to do at home to improve my condition between appointments. Soon enough Elsa suspected that I have been suffering with regular back pain because of stress and adjusted the treatment plan and techniques accordingly. I felt not only more mobile but also more relaxed which was wonderful. Elsa really knows what she is doing; I could not recommend her more!
