ABOUT

 

FRIDA HAUKSDOTTIR

As a European Osteopath Frida brings a diverse and unique skill-set to the treatment table. She integrates various manual therapy techniques including joint mobilization, visceral mobilization, myosfacial release and neuromuscular technique for a powerful and effective therapy. No session is the same, as she uses a non-recipe approach. This way she builds an optimized treatment plan for each and every client, and her goal is to empower her clients to take an active role in them getting back on track and enjoying life without any limitations. Frida regularly works with chronic muscle and joint pain, pelvic pain, digestive problems, hip pain, chronic neck and low back pain, headaches, TMJ problems and more. Her clientele includes elite athletes, stay-at-home moms and office workers.

European Osteopathy

The philosophy and practice of osteopathic medicine developed in reaction to the frequently harmful medicine being practiced in the United States in the late 1800s. The philosophy was developed by Andrew Taylor Still, MD, who pioneered the concept of "wellness" and recognized the importance of treating illness within the context of the whole body. Osteopathic medicine is a distinctive form of medical care founded on the philosophy that all body systems are interrelated and dependent upon one another for good health.

Osteopathy as practiced in the United States in the late 1800s was exported to Europe, and spread to the rest of the world. Treatment highlighted the musculoskeletal manipulation developed by U.S. osteopathic physicians (and not practiced by allopathic physicians). To this day, osteopaths (the term used for foreign-trained practitioners who practice osteopathic manipulation) are not physicians. Their training focuses on the musculoskeletal system and they are not licensed to prescribe medications or perform surgeries. They are trained primarily in the practice of osteopathic manual techniques.

In Europe osteopaths are widely recognized, in particular in the United Kingdom (UK), France and Germany, as well as outside Europe in Australia and New Zealand. In the UK there are over 10 universities that offer osteopathic medicine courses. The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) regulates the practice of osteopathy in the UK. By law osteopaths must be registered with GOsC in order to practise. GOsC works with the public and osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by registering qualified professionals, and setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.

Frida graduated with first class honors from one of the oldest osteopathic colleges in the UK, the British College of Osteopathic Medicine.
