DEIRDRE NAZARETH

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CERTIFIED PRACTITIONER & OSTEOPATH

has always had a passion for health and medicine and thus has explored its many avenues throughout her journey before completing her osteopathic degree from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine.

She worked as an EMT/paramedic while completing her undergraduate degree in BioPsychology in the United States. She later worked as a research assistant in the department of Human Genetics in Mount Sinai Hospital and concurrently ran her own personal training business at one of the most prestigious gyms in NYC. Here she trained many high profile clients from sports, entertainment and business backgrounds and clients of all ages and physical capabilities; from rehabilitative to elite athletes. Her experience and knowledge of exercise science awarded her television and magazine appearances as well as participation in public health programs.

Completing her osteopathic degree helped merge her passions of clinical and research medicine. Shortly after she completed her Master's in Pain, Science and Society at King's College London and has been invited to lecture on osteopathic topics in London Metropolitan University and at the OSEAN osteopathic conferences. She has also written for blogs on various osteopathic topics.

She has done further courses in Craniosacral Osteopathy and has completed credits towards a master's in acupuncture and dry needling. She is an advocate of balanced, healthy living and completed the Functional Medicine certification program in 2016 to be able to offer this nutrition-based knowledge to her patients. She treats patients of all ages and maintains her healthy lifestyle with regular yoga and dance; skiing and surfing (when she can!).

She is registered with the General Osteopathic Council, The British Osteopathic Association and is a member of the International Association for the Study of Pain and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
