"Osteo Care provides a better environment for the body
to cure and heal itself by improving the physical posture"
Mr. Danny Giraud
D.O (UK) , M.Ost
Mindfulness Stretch Instructor
British School of Osteopathy, London
I graduated with a Masters Degree in Osteopathy from The British School of Osteopathy, which is the largest and oldest school of osteopathy in the UK. During my studies I also became a teacher in the comprehensive 'Stretch Therapy' system and completed my Osteopathy Mindfulness & Accpetance training. My understanding of health has been shaped not only by Osteopathy but also my experiences, training and practice of meditation & mindfulness; my work as a personal trainer & movement coach; and my teaching of stretching & flexibility. My aim is to help you develop a healthy body, with good posture and movement; and a healthy mind with relaxation and mindfulness.
Why did you become an osteopath?
I decided to become an Osteopath when I was in my early 20’s. I was working as a personal trainer and movement coach in London, and many of my clients came to see me because they were in need of rehabilitation. I decided to see what options were available for me to learn about how we use our bodies. After extensive research, I realized that Osteopathy was 100% the best way to understand the human body. 4 years later, I have a master’s in Osteopathy and a big smile on my face
Why do you think the posture is important?
Posture is important because it is the result of the way we live our lives, and interact with the world: The way we breathe, the way we move, the way we carry our tension and stress. It displays our confidence, fear and joy. It can cause us discomfort, pain or poor movement. It is the result of our habitual behavior. When our posture is good, it often means that we are able to manage our stress, that we are happy and that we are not in pain.
What are your other specialities?
As well as being an Osteopath, Meditation Teacher and Personal Trainer, I am a teacher in ‘Stretch Therapy’, which is a comprehensive system that includes stretching, fascial remodelling, strengthening, neural re-patterning, and relaxation. I specialize in teaching and helping patients to control their minds better to manage stress, chronic pain and concentrate better. Another aspect of this work is teaching how to develop real flexibility, control and deep relaxation of the body.
What makes your care unique?
My care is based around my belief that we need a both a healthy mind and a healthy body. It is deeply grounded in modern, evidence based techniques and pain science. I believe educating patients and giving stretches or exercises patients can do at home to aid their treatment is important. Using osteopathy, mindfulness & movement to develop a better working and pain free body, while keeping a stress free mind.

I grew up in Korea but always hoped to study in Europe. My mission trip to India, at a young age, made me want to become a health professional so I could help people in need. My mentor, who was one of the top 5 neck surgeons in the UK, recommended for me to study 'osteopathic medicine' because he was receiving osteopathic treatments for his neck pain and was impressed by the hands-on care. Through osteopathy he was able to manage the pain without medication, injection and even surgery.
When I visited the osteopathic college in London for the first time, I immediately felt that I was born to become an osteopath. I was so amazed to see how efficiently the physical body frames support physiological functions within the body. I saw how osteopathy helps the body to be balanced, immune reaction, pain control and physical movements.
My PhD research on post-operative rehabilitation using osteopathic treatments after spinal surgery showed that gentle osteopathic approaches not only reduced the pain but also improved body functions leading to better recovery.
Using my clinical experiences and research, I now emphasize the importance of prevention, by improving the posture. Good posture enhances blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, nerve conduction and musculoskeletal balance. This leads to pain relief, enhanced immune function and both mind and body relaxation.
In this modern world, we often regret the choices we have made in the past about our health. It is so important to focus on what we can do now to slowly, yet joyfully, maintain the precious health that impacts our everyday life—and it starts with preserving our body’s ‘nature-centered posture’.
