Mrs Charlotte Kramer D.O.
Charlotte graduated from her four year full-time training at the European School of Osteopathy in 1990. She spent the first 12 years of her career in practice both privately and, for a short time, for the NHS in Croydon. She was also very involved in osteopathic education as a teacher, clinical supervisor and examiner. She and her family moved to Monmouthshire in 1999 when spent some time focussing on her own professional development. She undertook training in Myofascial Dry-Needling Techniques and Low Intensity Laser Therapy in order to broaden the range of skills and treatment options she could offer patients. Charlotte is interested in exploring the wide variety of components that can impact on a patientʼs experience of their problem, and works closely with other professionals to ensure that patients make and maintain the best improvement they can.
Mr Stuart Kramer DCR(R), D.O.
In 1993 Stuart graduated from The European School of Osteopathy (ESO) in Maidstone, Kent. His first professional training was as a Diagnostic Radiographer, studying for three years at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. On qualifying as a Radiographer, Stuart worked both within the UK and abroad before deciding to undertake further training as an Osteopath. After his Osteopathic training, Stuart worked within private practice, as a technique assistant, junior lecturer, clinic supervisor and finally as the Curriculum Co- ordinator at the ESO. In 1993/4 he was invited to become an Portfolio Assessor by the General Osteopathic Council and a mentor. Stuart has always had an interest in the clinical encounter and critical thinking.
Stuart also broadened his treatment approaches by undertaking courses in myofascial dry-needling (Western Medical Acupuncture) and Low Intensity Laser Therapy.
More recently, both Charlotte and Stuart have volunteered to pilot the General Osteopathic Council’s Re-validation programme for Osteopaths and have added Kinesiotaping to their skill set.
