Diego Bertoldo
Diego Bertoldo
Diego studied at the British School of Osteopathy where he was awarded a Master of Osteopathy degree. He is also trained in medical acupuncture.

After leaving his home country of Italy back in 2004, he first realised his fascination with mindfulness by way of Ashtanga Yoga, which he has been practising regularly for a number of years. This journey of self-discovery led Diego to want to learn more about how the body works - and having been introduced to it by a friend and with personal experience of the benefits it can bring, osteopathy was then the obvious choice.

Diego believes that everyone deserves a healthy and pain-free body in order to enjoy life to the full. Having suffered with back pain since his teenage years, he knows first-hand the impact that such pain and discomfort can have on a person's professional and social life. Combining the knowledge gained through his studies and the personal discovery through yoga, Diego can provide treatment tailored to the individual with a gentle and compassionate approach.

We're very pleased to welcome France Quirin with his wealth of experience to our team at Docklands Osteopathy Clinic.

As an osteopath he has mostly been based in Birmingham, but has also had clinics in Amsterdam and with Boots Health and Beauty. During this time he has been involved with three main charities: Osteopathic Children's Centre, Freshwinds Charitable Trust and Neuromuscular Centre West Midlands, providing osteopathic care for clients with incurable diseases mainly affecting the muscular system. He has a wide and varied experience with a range of patients including athletes from Birchfield Harriers, members of the Royal Ballet and performers at theatres in the centre of Birmingham. This has enabled him to develop his skills from soft/indirect cranial techniques to direct massage and manipulative skills. Over the last ten years he has specialised in the area of ME/chronic fatigue and is well known amongst this community in the West Midlands. In addition he has further qualifications in nutrition, detoxification, clinical weight loss, hypnotherapy, life coaching, chronic pain, community health championing and is a Registered Perrin Practitioner. He is currently exploring the application of mindfulness in osteopathic treatment, for his own personal awareness and as a model within the osteopathic community. He runs his own busy practice in Birmingham, Spinal Solutions, in the thriving area of the Jewellery Quarter.

He has engaged in sport for most of his life, from marathon running to martial arts, always striving to apply his own personal experience of sport and training to his osteopathic practice. He has worked with many yoga teachers who have helped him to apply osteopathic medicine to the practice of yoga; he himself practises yoga on a regular basis for his own enjoyment and health.

Jenny became interested in training as an Osteopath after taking her baby son for Cranial Osteopathic treatment. She liked the gentle approach and was impressed with the results of the non-invasive treatment.

Jenny graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2005 with a degree in Osteopathy and a diploma in Naturopathy. Following that she attended a postgraduate course in Cranial Osteopathy. However, she also treats structurally and viscerally when appropriate. She has attended many courses on treating pregnant women and babies as well as on other areas including ergonomics, which helps her to give advice and treatment for postural strain. She likes to take a holistic approach when treating patients and gives advice on nutrition, exercise, relaxation, posture and pain prevention. She treats people of all ages and tailors her treatment accordingly.

When not working she likes to spend time doing yoga, cycling and walking, and visiting the cinema and theatre.
