About Atsuko


​My name is Atsuko (pronounced as Atz-ko) Miyashita. I am originally from Japan, and have lived in Europe for the last 15 years.

I am trained in the European School of Osteopathy, Kent. I graduated from it in 2010 and since then I have worked in the various clinics in Cheshire and Merseyside.

In the 4 years of my undergraduate training, I learned anatomy, physiology, neurology, pathology, as well as covering a various technique and knowledge of osteopathy. My training included Cranial, Visceral and Paediatric osteopathy​ in the curriculum, and I have had further training in each area since graduation.

I have developed a special interest in treating pregnant and post part women, and babies and children. As a woman myself, it made sense to me that I treat them with the most natural way - by my hand, not by any devices or by chemicals. Since my graduation, I have worked alongside paediatric osteopaths and lactation consultants, and have gained vast knowledge and experience. I have treated babies in various age (youngest was 3 days), toddlers, school children and adolescents.

I am also interested in chronic pain management and posture / body alignment. How you hold the body immensely affects how you strain the body in the long term, and I have found that osteopathy is very effective in improving your biomechanics, body dynamics and general health.

I am an avid musician too. I have played the piano, harp, guitar, concertina and violin - biomechanics in musicians / dancers are my particular interest as well.

This is a 4-years, full-time degree course training, including academic studies and clinic experience in the following area:

- Structural osteopathy

- Cranial osteopathy

- Visceral osteopathy

- Osteopathy for babies and children

Craniosacral Fascial Therapy is developed by Dr. Barry Gillespie. This technique enable to assess the fascial system in the whole body that connects every structural cells of the body, and effectively release the tight fascia.
