Sebastian Contreras

Originally from Knaresborough, Sebastian graduated from the British School of Osteopathy, widely regarded as the premier osteopathic training establishment in the world. He received a Bachelor of Osteopathy degree with honours. Sebastian returned to North Yorkshire in 2004 to provide osteopathic treatment for the people of Knaresborough, Harrogate and Wetherby.

Sebastian has been made a full member of the Institute of Osteopathy as well as the Osteopathic Sports Care Association and is state-registered with the General Osteopathic Council a body concerned with the continued professional development (CPD) of practitioners. A firm advocate of CPD, Sebastian regularly attends courses to update his skills and keep abreast of current developments in the world of Osteopathy & Medicine.

Following graduation he enrolled for a diploma in Classical Osteopathy. There he trained with the oldest ever osteopath, who was 98 years old at the time and had been working, teaching and researching osteopathy for 71 years. In 2013, Sebastian earned his Master's Degree in Osteopathic Sports Care with distinction from Leeds Carnegie. This has enabled Sebastian to gain valuable expertise and further develop his osteopathic treatment.

Sebastian's special interests include spinal, sports and work related injuries, postural correction (increasing awareness of and helping correct those awkward and poor postures) hence his links with Phoenix Dance Theatre and The Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
