“It is this constant transfer of information that enables a practitioner to grow, given that we can never know enough, there is no time to waste, understanding the why is more important than the what.”

Ruari has been a practising Osteopath since 2003, after graduating from the British School of Osteopathy in London. Previously Director of the highly regarded Breakspeare Clinic in the Wychwood Valley, he has now moved to the other side of the county and brings his experience and expertise to The Bosworth Clinic team. Over the past 12 years, Ruari has held a number of educational posts, including Lecturer and Tutor at Oxford Brookes University, and Senior Lecturer at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Edinburgh and Birmingham. He is passionate about education, and applies this to both his students and his patients, should they wish it!
Ruari has remained open-minded regarding treatment, enabling him to provide a wide range of treatment modalities to suit most types of problems and people. He strongly believes in the idea of looking at the whole body to understand why it has gone wrong, and how to improve it. This generalist approach reduces the chances of missing vital clues in a diagnosis at the beginning. This fits well with the whole ethos of the Bosworth Clinic, but comes at it from a slightly different viewpoint. He is very happy to talk to people about osteopathy and how it fits into the world of physical therapy. Just ask!
